Financial Considerations

Illinois Tech recognizes that paying for a high-quality education is a primary concern for students and their families. Providing accurate and timely housing and food rates is important to the offices of Residence Life and Financial Aid.

If you are utilizing federal financial aid to cover some or all of your housing and food charges, please contact the Office of Financial Aid to determine how your room and meal selection affects your out-of-pocket expenses. If you would like to make an appointment with a financial aid counselor, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 312.567.7219 or
