Visit the Student Pre-Arrival Checklist for information on what new and returning RIT students need to do before arriving on campus.

RIT is actively preparing for an on-campus fall semester. The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors is the most important consideration as we plan to reopen. The Fall Planning Task Force—along with the Academic Planning, Infrastructure and Health Technologies, and Community Readiness committees— was formed to develop creative strategies and contingency plans to enable a safe and successful reopening. Find resources and answers to frequently asked questions at https://www.rit.edu/ready/. 

Get answers to your questions by calling the RIT call center at 585-475-3500 or 1-833-323-0002 between the hours of 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. EST or emailing coronavirusresponse@rit.edu.

Daily Health Screen
To assist with symptom monitoring, faculty, staff, and students must complete the RIT Daily Health Screen every day, seven days a week, whether or not they are coming to campus. The screen will provide users with instructions on how to proceed if they are experiencing symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19.
