3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are tiny and outdated. The lounge area is small and the kitchen area is smaller than a closet. There is no a/c in Nagler dorms and the heating is always way too high in the winter.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Nothing is new but it's not horrible. You basically pay a lot because it's city living

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: its decent for being in the heart of NYC.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Very minimal space, but it is in New York City so it's understandable. Average cleanliness.

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.
