Moving Out

Thanksgiving Break

Residential students are welcome to remain in their rooms during Thanksgiving Recess (November 24 to November 27) at no extra cost. In order to be allowed into the halls during Thanksgiving Recess students must register for break housing beginning Monday, November 7, 2022. 

Fall 2022 Closing

The Residence Halls close December 21, 2022 at 9AM. If the college chooses to utilize makeup days, the Residence Halls will remain open until December 22, 2022 at 5PM. No exceptions or late stays will be permitted. 

Residents are encouraged to leave for winter break no later than 24 hours after their last final exam. Instructions on how to check out for winter break will be provided at a later date.

Residential Life strongly encourages all residents to check in with their course instructors prior to making any travel arrangements. 

Withdrawing for Spring Semester

Students may begin to request a withdrawal from housing for the spring semester on November 29, 2022.

Students who withdraw from spring housing prior to December 21, 2022 will not be charged the $500 non-refundable deposit. 

With the consent of Residential Life, the housing contract may be terminated at the end of the fall semester due to early graduation, study abroad, academic dismissal, transfer of schools, withdrawal or military service. Requests for early release from the housing contract for reasons other than those mentioned above are granted only under rare and extenuating/unforeseen circumstances through the withdrawal process.

A resident who officially withdraws or has been dismissed from FIT for either academic or disciplinary reasons is not released from the obligations of this Contract unless otherwise agreed.

The Residence Contract is binding for the full academic year. Residents who withdraw or are dismissed will be responsible for a minimum charge of $500.00, and should consult the refund schedule for financial penalties incurred as a result of terminating the Contract. Withdrawal charges/refunds are issued in accordance with the College’s Withdrawal Refund schedule minus the applicable withdrawal fee. Please refer to the College’s tuition and fee refund policy and website for information and dates.

All refunds will be credited to the Resident's account through the Bursar’s office. 

If a resident vacates a suite/room without the consent of Residential Life prior to the end of the stated Term of the housing contract the Resident shall remain responsible for the costs of the entire stated Term of the Contract. Failure to occupy a space after signing the housing contract does not relieve the Resident of the responsibility to fulfill the terms and financial obligations of the housing contract.
