2 College Senior

Campus Housing: Rooms are small and neighbors can get annoying quickly. We have RAs but they dont really do much.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's expensive, but it's close to class and the upper classmen dorms are pretty nice.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not a fan of housing

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like it for the first year it allows the students to get to know each other more.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All freshman live on one street and classes are across the street. One freshman building has no AC so it's unbearable to live there in the summer months. The other buildings are apartment-style and have AC but the bathrooms and kitchens are pretty run down. The rooms are pretty ugly too, the color is outdated.

FIT is home to more than 2,300 students, based on a first-come, first-served basis. Three residence halls (Alumni, Nagler, and Coed) are located conveniently across the street from FIT's campus. These halls typically house incoming freshmen and new students. FIT also has a newer residence hall, George and Mariana Kaufman Hall, located on West 31st Street between Ninth and 10th avenues, which typically houses upperclassmen. Although some students think it is a far walk from campus, others think the newer rooms are worth the distance.

Students can take advantage of the reasonably priced campus housing, especially since they are located in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Manhattan. The Department of Residential Life hosts several social activities a semester, which give students a chance to meet others.
