Our Campus

On an entire city block in Manhattan’s vibrant Chelsea neighborhood, FIT’s campus includes everything you’d expect: academic buildings, residence halls, a dining hall. But there’s so much more: the fashionable Museum at FIT; the Gladys Marcus Library, with special resources for our specialized programs; the Style Shop, run entirely by students; green roofs that support our commitment to sustainability.
