Computer Access

Student computer accounts will automatically convert to alumni accounts upon graduation. A valid RIT Alumni ID is required to borrow materials from the library. You can obtain an alumni ID from the RIT Registrar’s Office. If your account is not active, contact the Alumni Office.

If you are not affiliated with RIT, you may apply for a temporary guest computer account at the Circulation Desk. Please be prepared to fill out a form and provide government-issued identification. Guest accounts are valid only for the day of issue. Each guest is allowed 3 accounts per year.

Wi-Fi is available throughout the library. To connect to the Wi-Fi, please visit the ITS Wireless Network Page and follow the instructions provided.
