If you own a car and use it to drive to campus, you are probably well aware of how tricky the parking process can be. RIT has a mixture of General, Handicapped, Reserved, Visitor, Short-Term and 20 minute parking spots all over campus to accommodate every potential driver . At this point we have it pretty much all figured out. Parking is very accessible today with interactive maps, parking accounts, and the parking and transportation website. Back in the days of Lyndon B. Johnson, gas was less than 40 cents a gallon and RIT had just relocated to Henrietta. After RIT purchased their new land, parking lots, along with many other structures, were constructed to start to create the familiar Brick City we all know and love.
The picture above was taken around 1975, around where F lot is today, and was one of the first few parking lots made to allocate faculty and students. If you’re a car junkie, you may be able to spot a few classics!
