Reserving your accommodation

Colorful living area with blue and purple cushions

The student housing buildings are gender-segregated and specific building allocations are based on student enrollment and availability. Please read the student housing policies before requesting housing.

  • No check-in without a housing request submitted and confirmed by RIT staff via email. It’s the student’s responsibility to notify the Student Affairs office of a change in check-in date and to notify the housing staff directly of the check-out date 48 hours in advance. Failure to do so will result in a delayed check-out and additional fees if after the semester move-out date.
  • Please note that if you move into housing before the check-in dates, you will be charged a daily rate charge.
  • All housing residents are required to inspect their room and apartment shared living spaces to record any damages or issues prior to signing the check-in form and officially taking responsibility for the housing allocation.
  • If you do not check out of housing by the semester deadline, you will be charged a daily rate until the start of the new semester. Once the semester starts, the housing charges will be semester-based.
  • Co-op students who require housing are charged a daily rate unless full semester housing is required.
  • All housing residents are responsible for their guests (both RIT and non-RIT guests.)
  • Student housing has designated smoking areas and the residences are non-smoking.
  • Please note that student housing residents will only be given two official smoking warnings via email from RIT Dubai Student Affairs before they are asked to leave housing permanently.
  • No alcohol is allowed in housing.
  • No pets allowed.

Student Housing Application
Please submit the student housing application to reserve a place in student housing.
(Housing allocation is made on a first-come-first-serve basis.)

All allocations are made by the DSOA team and no emails will be sent from their side to confirm your exact room or roommate.
Please be patient and wait until you move in to meet your roommate as many changes may occur before the beginning of the semester.
