In the event of closings or cancelations due to inclement weather, RIT uses a “layered” approach to notify the campus community.

• RIT Message Center: An emergency message is delivered via e-mail and to the MyRIT portal.
• Telephone: A message is recorded on a Cancellation/Emergency Hotline: 585-475-7075 (voice), 585-475-7076 (TTY), and 585-475-2411 (RIT’s main number).
• Voicemail: A voicemail blast is sent to nearly 3,000 faculty and staff.
• External channels:
