Precollege Dining

Precollege students in the dining hall and breezeway

Common Lunch Hour 

All Precollege students (high school and middle school) who are enrolled in two sessions per day will have the same lunch hour so they may socialize with other Precollege students. Common lunch hour is from 12:30–1:30 pm daily in all fall, spring, and summer programs. Students may visit the FIT Dining Hall, located in the lobby of the Dubinsky Student Center, or they may patronize the local food merchants in the immediate vicinity of FIT (a list of local food vendors may be found in the Precollege Student Handbook). This is up to the discretion of the parent or guardian. Students may purchase lunch in the dining hall or bring their own. 

Please note: Students are not escorted to and from their classes to the Dining Hall. Students must be comfortable traveling throughout the campus on their own.

Summer Lunch Hour 

During FIT's summer Precollege programs, a Precollege staff member is assigned to the FIT dining hall to assist students, provide support, and to host our lunchtime activities. FIT security is always present in the Dubinsky Lobby and you'll find that the large majority of our summer dining hall patrons are from Precollege Programs.

Each day Precollege Programs will have something happening in the Dining Hall from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm including: 

  • admissions representatives ready to answer application questions
  • viewings of our FIT fashion shows
  • special short films on FIT degree programs
  • fun short films and animations
