All hosts are current undergraduate IIT students. They had many of your same questions and concerns as high school students. We encourage you to ask them about their own college search process and experiences.

What are the rules?

As an IIT guest, you are expected to abide by the rules and regulations of the university, which are designed to build a friendly, caring, and safe atmosphere. When staying in a residence hall, all of the rules and regulations that apply to IIT students will apply to you.

Overnight visits are only available for seniors in high school and those looking to transfer for the upcoming semester.

What does it cost?

Your residence hall accommodations and meals are free. We encourage you to bring some money for any activities or entertainment in which you might participate with your host.

Group Visits

Illinois Tech Undergraduate Admission offers opportunities for groups of up to 50 students to visit campus. Group visits are intended for college bound groups (9th – 12th grade). Each visit includes a 30-45 minute information session with an admission counselor and an hour long tour of campus with a current student.

If you would like to submit a request for a group tour at Illinois Tech, you may use the online group tour request form.

A few notes on group visits:

    • 1 chaperone is required for every 15 students on a group tour
    • Group tours must be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance of the desired date
    • Group tours are not available on evenings and weekends

    Due to high volume of requests, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all group tour requests. We do not provide group visits to elementary or middle school students.

    Thank you for your interest in group tours at Illinois Institute of Technology
