Below are the dates for contracts and room selection! FAQ can be found here

Room selection Information and Dates

Individuals will be given the option to keep their current space before Room Reservation starts; this period is called "nesting". If you "nest" in your room, you have the opportunity to pull in a roommate (if your roommate is not also nesting). In order to nest you will need to go to myroom.iit.edu to select the same space during the nesting period.  The link to this form is provided in the email confirmation you receive at the completion of your housing contract.

Individuals can also submit a Priority Unit Form and get early access, regardless of class status, if you can fill a Carman 1 Bedroom & Den, Gunsaulus 2 Bedroom, SSV 6 bedroom, or SSV 3 Bedroom unit!
