Administration: We have to sign in and do over night passes for guests. Show ID when we enter any building. So, our campus is very safe and protective.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

New York City is an exciting place to live, but at times, it can also be a dangerous place if students aren't careful or wise about their decisions. FIT prides itself in having very tight security when it comes to buildings on campus and the residence halls. The security is so strict that students who are caught violating the rules are sometimes expelled from campus and never allowed on the property again. When entering every building on campus, a student must show his or her FIT ID. If a student has forgotten his or her ID, the lobby of the Marvin Feldman Center (C Building) has a student roster, in which the student will be given a pass for that day only.

Major issues are seen in the residence halls when it comes to the strictness of FIT's campus. These issues include visitation, drinking, and illegal substances. If students do not follow these guidelines, the Department of Residential Life has no problem putting a fine on the student's account, making him or her lose visitation privileges, as well as potentially kicking him or her out of the dorms for good. If you play by the rules, you will have a hard time finding something to get in trouble for. Although these rules seem strict to students, parents can feel at ease knowing their children are safe in a big city like New York.

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Cheating on or plagiarizing tests or projects
  • Coming into the residence halls drunk
  • Drinking alcohol in the dorms
  • Eating or drinking in class, especially in the computer classrooms
  • Having a guest stay overnight without registering them
  • Smoking on school property
  • Trying to sneak into the school buildings without first showing your ID
  • Using illegal substances, such as marijuana, in the dorm rooms
  • Using someone else's ID
Visitation Policies
Students living in the residence halls must abide to the strict guidelines of Residential Life. Day guests are considered guests checked in between 8 a.m. and 12 a.m. In order to have overnight guests, you must register your guest by 4 p.m. the day of the visit; if a day guest is signed out after 12 a.m. without registering, the student will have consequences. Students are allowed to have one guest stay a maximum of two consecutive nights, unless an extended overnight is pre-approved. Overnight visitation is limited to eight nights per month.
Did You Know?
If students try to come into any residence hall while visibly intoxicated, security may force them to go to the hospital.
