The Schmitt Interfaith Center is located immediately to the east of the Campus Center and Student Allumni Union and connected to them via the Fireside Lounge. The center was a gift from Kilian J. and Caroline F. Schmitt and other donors.

You may reserve rooms in the Schmitt Interfaith Center via RIT Events. If you have never done this before, see RIT Events' helpful tutorials. Recognized religious, secular, and spiritual campus communities are given priority access to the Schmitt Interfaith Center. Other reservations may be waitlisted until recognized communities have made reservations.
