With a rich history encompassing over 175 years, RIT invites students, parents, employers, and companies to learn more about our dynamic academic programs and our ever-changing campus.

Latest Updates

We are following the current COVID-19 situation moment-by-moment and using the best information possible (i.e. CDC, Rochester-based health agencies, location-specific information, etc.) in deciding when our campus can reopen and visitors may return. While nothing beats experiencing RIT in-person, these virtual options are the next best thing. Students who attend one of these virtual visits will have their application fee waived. 

  • Virtual Campus Visit: Meet with your admissions counselor and/or faculty members. Learn about academic programs, the admissions process, access services for deaf and hard-of-hearing students, campus life, and so much more. View Schedule
  • TGIF Information Session: Led by our RIT/NTID admissions team and current RIT/NTID students, we’ll give deaf and hard-of-hearing students a first-look at our unparalleled academic offerings, admissions requirements, first-rate cooperative education, and more. View Schedule
  • Student-Led Interactive Tour: Our RIT/NTID student ambassadors will walk you through video content of our beautiful campus and give you an inside look at our best-in-class labs and studios. View Schedule

Until we can resume on-campus visitation, stay informed, safe, and, especially, healthy. The health and safety of our community is paramount and this extends to our many visitors, future students, and families.
