Coming soon

Separately from the NTID 55th Anniversary Reunion, there will be more events and activities to enjoy during Brick City Weekend!

Check back later for links to register for these events.

For additional RIT events and workshops that weekend, register via the Brick City Weekend website, starting in late summer.

Tickets for the RIT Men’s Hockey game will be available to alumni attending the NTID 55th Anniversary Reunion.


We recommend that you book your hotel early! Since this event will be RIT Brick City Weekend, hotels are sure to fill up fast. Rochester has many hotels to offer, but the ones below are closest to campus:

RIT Inn & Conference Center

A block of rooms will be held until September 21, 2023. After that time, the block will no longer be available. Visit the reservation website and use code 231012NTID (when adding the code, you will need to change it from Discount Code to Group Attendee for the code to work).

DoubleTree Rochester

A block of rooms will be held until September 12, 2023. After that time, the block will no longer be available. Visit the reservation website or call 800-774-1500 and refer to the NTID 55th Anniversary block.

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 will have 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. The RIT Brick City Weekend site will be available later in the summer.

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, current students must register for the reunion in order to attend.  Many of our events include food, giveaways, and more, so we need to know the number of attendees for catering and other items.

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. An announcement will be made when hockey tickets are available, and you will be able to use an NTID Reunion code to purchase tickets. Tickets will sell fast, so don’t wait once the announcement goes out!
