Life At FIT
An unconventional college located in an extraordinary city, FIT offers an experience you won’t get anywhere else. On campus and off, there’s always something unexpected to discover, someone interesting to meet, some new idea to explore. So come to FIT and find your voice, find your people, and make your mark. It’s a perfect setting to live, learn, play, and grow.
Live It Up
Live, Eat, and Sleep FIT
With four residence halls housing over 2,200 students, varied options to suit your lifestyle, and flexible meal plans, living on campus can be a great choice.
Find What You Love
Take your pick from more than 60 student clubs. Volunteer. Join a team. Find new friends, develop new skills, and make a difference—on and off campus.
It’s Not Just FIT. It’s Tradition.
We’re always rethinking the status quo. But some things should never change—like Family Weekend and Wellness Week. We love them and we think you will too.
Make it here. Make it anywhere. The history. The diversity. Uncommon ideas and unlimited opportunities. There’s no other place like it. At FIT, you’ll join a community of creative thinkers and doers who are making it here — and all around the globe.Our Students
