3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Decent fitness facilities. Miniature rooms. Awful food.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: average housing for college. not as spacious as traditional colleges but understandable for NYC

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Three dorms are offered to incoming / new transfer students while one dorm building is offered for returning students. With a large student body of out-of-state students and international students more space is needed in the dorms. The apartment style dorm are better than tradition because the students are able to cook for themselves and have better control over their diet and money. The freshman dorms are convenient across the street from the campus, so working late into the night is easier to do. The housing process is okay and depending on who your advisor is the faster the process goes. The social atmosphere within the dorms includes much isolation. The most communication is made with your roommate(s) /suitemate(s) and not the others on your floor.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus so I don't know

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are really cool and clean but if you live in New York I wouldn't dorm. It's so expensive.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
