Housing for Upcoming 2024-2025 Academic Year

Current and Returning Students

The Academic Year 2024-2025 housing application is now open. Your housing portal provides a user-friendly experience, allows you to search and connect with potential roommates, and allows you to self-select and secure your room for the upcoming academic year.

Steps in the Application Process
Step 1: Login to the Housing Portal using your IIT Single Sign On (SSO) Credentials
Step 2: Select “Housing and Food Application” at the top navigation bar in the portal.
Step 3: Fill out each page of the application to completion and submit.
Step 4: Once your application is submitted you will be able to search for preferred roommates.

If you need to leave the application at any point in time, all entries will be saved. 

Please note that prior to submitting your contract, we require a $600.00 prepayment. The prepayment is not an extra fee and will go directly toward the cost of your room for the term. Should you cancel prior to May 31, 2024, you will receive a refund of your deposit. If you attempt to cancel after May 31, 2024, your deposit will be non refundable per our contract terms in section R.

Our goal this year is for all applicants to be able to select their own room through the process. Students in roommate groups will be given the earliest room selection time slots to facilitate more students getting their preferred roommates. To ensure you give yourself the greatest possible opportunity to select the room you’d like, please review the potential IIT housing options and housing rates, and make sure you follow the timeline below.

New, Incoming First-Year Undergraduate Students

Apply to live in student housing by completing your housing contract in the Housing Portal. The contract allows you to select your housing preferences, including residence hall and preferred roommates. All first- and second-year students can select either Kacek Hall, Cunningham Hall or Lewis Hall in McCormick Student Village as their preference. Second year students can also choose Rowe Village Middle or North. All placements are by availability.

Students who live with a parent or guardian within 20 miles of Illinois Tech’s Mies Campus are eligible for a student housing waiver.  All other waivers will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and approved by the Office of Admissions, so make sure to discuss with your admission counselor if this applies to your situation.
