Everyone who plans to attend NTID Reunion events must register. You will get entry to all NTID reunion activities on campus when you register via the NTID 55th Anniversary Reunion website. The fee helps cover the costs of hosting such a large group—items like venue set-up, food, and giveaways. RIT Brick City Weekend is at the same time and has its own registration site. You will be able to register separately for those activities if you wish to attend them and some may have a fee.

All children aged 5 and up must be registered for the reunion in order to attend. Ages 4 and under are free.

Yes, if you intend to come to the SVP ’73 50th Reunion, please register for NTID’s 55th Anniversary Reunion. All activities will be held during the larger NTID Reunion.

Yes – everyone who wishes to attend needs to register. This includes current faculty/staff and students. Many of our events will include food, giveaways, and more, and we need to ensure we can cover the number of attendees for catering and other items. There are no waivers or reduced fees that will be applied.

If you plan to attend the RIT Men’s Hockey game on Saturday during the reunion weekend, you will need to purchase a hockey game ticket. This is a separate cost from the NTID Reunion. Tickets will sell fast, so don’t wait! Purchase tickets at rittickets.com.
