General Campus Information
RIT Kosovo can proudly reflect upon its institutional achievements and the successes of our students and alumni. From crowded temporary quarters in the Sunny Hill neighborhood of Prishtina, RIT Kosovo moved to its present renovated facilities in Germia in 2005. The property was kindly leased for free by the Municipality of Prishtina, and the main campus building was reconstructed through the generosity of Behgjet Pacolli Foundation. The campus’s convenient location suits most students while the buildings are sufficient to meet the basic requirements of our academic programs. The addition of a second building in 2006, currently housing the lively cafeteria, R&D Lab and a small student dormitory, significantly enhanced our facilities. RIT Kosovo campus is now a vibrant environment with a youthful and dynamic atmosphere.
