New York City is an exciting place to live, but at times, it can also be a dangerous place if students aren't careful or wise about their decisions. FIT prides itself in having very tight security when it comes to buildings on campus and the residence halls. The security is so strict that students who are caught violating the rules are sometimes expelled from campus and never allowed on the property again. When entering every building on campus, a student must show his or her FIT ID. If a student has forgotten his or her ID, the lobby of the Marvin Feldman Center (C Building) has a student roster, in which the student will be given a pass for that day only.
Major issues are seen in the residence halls when it comes to the strictness of FIT's campus. These issues include visitation, drinking, and illegal substances. If students do not follow these guidelines, the Department of Residential Life has no problem putting a fine on the student's account, making him or her lose visitation privileges, as well as potentially kicking him or her out of the dorms for good. If you play by the rules, you will have a hard time finding something to get in trouble for. Although these rules seem strict to students, parents can feel at ease knowing their children are safe in a big city like New York.
