The RIT Housing Selection process is split into two phases - Housing Renewal and Housing Selection. Visit Housing Selection to learn more.
Housing Renewal is for students currently living in Perkins Green, Riverknoll, University Commons, and the RIT Inn who want to renew their contract for the space they are currently living in for the 2021-2022 academic year.
Renewal sign-up is October 19-25, 2020.
Request a Roommate process is November 2-13, 2020.
Room Selection is for students who are currently living in the Residence Halls, Global Village, and Greek Circle. This process is also for students who are currently in Perkins Green, Riverknoll, University Commons, and the RIT Inn who did not renew their contract for the 2021-2022 academic year. Students who are living in non-RIT housing or on co-op or study abroad may also participate in this process.
Room Selection will take place at the beginning of the Spring semester.
