Students who lived in the RIT Inn, Perkins Green, Riverknoll, or University Commons this year were eligible for Housing Renewal. If you missed the opportunity to renew for 2021-2022, you may still participate in Room Selection.
Part 2 of Housing Selection began February 8, 2021.
Room Selection is the process of applying for and selecting your RIT housing for the 2021 – 2022 academic year.
Students living in RIT Housing consistently perform better academically than students living off campus.
As you choose your RIT housing, consider if you will search for housing as an individual or with a roommate(s). Make sure to review our residences, rates, and housing comparison tool to choose the housing option that is the best fit for you.

Room Selection Steps
Step 1: Contracts and Roommates

Do you plan on having roommates? You will need to form a group.
The person who creates a group is the Group Leader. The Group Leader can invite other students to join the group.The Group Leader will only be able to invite other student(s) if the student(s) have completed a 2021-2022 RIT Housing contract.
Students can search for a group and click Join Group after they have completed a housing contract.
