Housing scholarship awards are granted to incoming students through the undergraduate admissions process. The amounts of the housing scholarship awards vary and are awarded by the Office of Admission. All students are considered for these awards, however, not all students are guaranteed a housing award. Housing scholarship awards include but are not limited to the following: IIT Housing Scholarships, Athletic Room and Board, and ROTC Room and Board.
Housing awards are available each semester an undergraduate student is enrolled at least full time (12 credit hours or more). The housing awards are restricted to follow the Less Than Full-Time Enrollment Policy, as outlined on the Policies and Procedures web page.
Housing scholarship awards only apply toward housing charges billed by the Office of Student Accounting at IIT for one of the following undergraduate residences: McCormick Student Village, Gunsaulus Hall, or one of the university-owned sorority houses.
The Housing Scholarship is not applicable to State Street Village, off-campus housing, or for graduate apartments (Carmen Hall, Bailey Hall, or Cunningham Hall), unless the undergraduate student has special permission to move into the apartment option and are a lease holder.
*Students who matriculated prior to spring 2012 are eligible to use their housing scholarship towards housing costs in State Street Village (SSV).
Each semester, the Office of Financial Aid will verify with the Office of Residence and Greek Life to ensure compliance with the residence requirements. Housing scholarship awards will be removed from a student's account if a student is not in compliance with the guidelines and restrictions set forth.
