Commuter Life at RIT
RIT Commuter Life strives to help commuter students become an active part of the college community. While your academic career is important, college shouldn’t be just about attending classes and studying. We encourage commuters to take part in campus events and activities, clubs, and organizations on campus. We want your experience at RIT to be one that is rewarding AND engaging!
Because commuters are an important part of campus life, we offer all commuter students additional services, programs, and outreach to help you adjust to both on and off campus life. We provide social gatherings, a week long Commuter Spirit Week, a commuter lounge, and much more.
How do we define commuter students?
RIT defines a commuter student as any student living off campus. If you are not residing in college-owned housing, you are a commuter.
What can commuter students expect?
- Advice and tips on commuter issues such as parking, registration, where to eat, and campus social life
- Knowledge of campus opportunities and resources
- Increased awareness of leadership opportunities, student life, clubs, organizations and activities
- Introduction to faculty, staff, and peers
- Opportunities to build friends and extend support systems
