Hello! Attending RIT and planning your housing budget is a smart idea. At RIT, housing costs can vary based on the type of residence you choose and the specific dormitory or apartment complex. Below are some general ranges for the 2024-2025 academic year, but note that these costs may change for future years, so make sure to check RIT's website for the most up-to-date information.

- Residence Halls: These are primarily for first and second-year students, and costs range from around $4,500 to $6,000 per semester.

- Greek Housing: If you join a fraternity or sorority at RIT, housing costs within the Greek community typically range from approximately $3,000 to $4,000 per semester.

- RIT Apartments: These apartment complexes are available for upperclassmen and include Global Village, Perkins Green, Riverknoll, and University Commons. The rates for these apartments range from around $2,500 to $6,000 per semester.

- On-campus housing at RIT generally includes utilities, internet access, and laundry facilities within the rates.
