Students residing in a university residential area who have been approved to stay are not permitted to host visitors.

Students can continue to live in off-campus housing until further notice. RIT is encouraging social distancing and enhanced preventative public health and hygiene measures.

Congress is currently considering legislation that may provide some relief to students and institutions impacted by COVID-19, and which may provide support for students living in off-campus housing. RIT is actively engaged in advocacy efforts on this legislation on your behalf. We urge you to contact your Federal representatives to ask them to include relief for students in this legislation.

If students have concerns regarding off-campus housing, they can reach out directly to their landlords to discuss options. Here is contact information for some local management firms:
