Why Vend at RIT?

Vending at RIT is a great opportunity to sell products and services to potentially thousands of students, faculty and staff members. 

Vending Locations

There are two locations on campus where vendors are permits to sell. The lobby of the Student Alumni Union (SAU) is our most popular vending location. The SAU is a central place for many campus offices and activities. This is also the location of two cafeterias (Brick City Café, RITZ SportsZone), Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and Nathan’s Soup and Salad; all popular and busy places for RIT students, faculty and staff. Vending at RIT is a great opportunity to reach a wide range of possible customers.
