Waitlisted Applicants

If you are waitlisted for housing, you will be contacted as soon as space becomes available. You will be contacted through your FIT email, so check your email frequently. Although we cannot guarantee housing, the majority of waitlisted applicants will be contacted by the beginning of the fall semester.

Waitlist Position

For Current/Returning students: Waitlist position is determined by your computer-generated lottery number.  For students who apply after the lottery closes, your waitlist position will be determined by the date your application was received.  

For New/Entering Students: Your waitlist position will be determined by the date your application was received.  

You can check updates to your waitlist position by visiting the Housing/Residential Life section through MyFIT and going to MyHousing.

Housing Deposit

If FIT is unable to offer you on campus housing by the start of the fall semester, your deposit will be credited to your FIT student account. 

Roommates and Room Types

Waitlisted applicants will be assigned to the next available space. While we attempt to honor requests (pending availability), FIT's first priority is to offer on-campus housing. Those who enter room selection will NOT be able to choose a waitlisted applicant as a roommate.

No Longer Interested?

You must submit an online withdrawal form in order to be removed from the waitlist. Withdrawal charges will apply. Your deposit will ONLY be credited to your FIT student account if FIT is unable to offer you an on-campus housing by the start of the fall semester.
