Prepayment and Billing

Housing Application Prepayment

New incoming students are not required to make a campus housing reservation pre-payment. Depending on your class year and college, however, students may be required to make a prepayment to reserve the room during the housing application. The Housing Application Prepayment is not an extra fee, and will be applied as a credit to the Resident’s student account for the purpose of living in campus housing during the term. Students experiencing financial hardship who find themselves unable to make the $600 prepayment can apply for a prepayment waiver by completing the Illinois Tech Residential Prepayment Waiver Application
