Virtual Community

RIT has put together an online closed group for all incoming students through our student engagement platform, RIT CampusGroups. Here, you’ll have the ability to review all emails and communications sent to you prior to the start of your fall semester classes. You will also have an opportunity to connect with other incoming students by engaging in discussion topics, asking questions facilitated by Orientation staff, and participating in events.

About Rochester

The RIT campus is about six miles from downtown Rochester—just minutes away if you want to explore and enjoy the city’s entertainment, cultural, and employment opportunities. Rochester is large enough to provide the dining and night life opportunities you might expect in a bigger city, yet small and friendly enough to be inviting and accessible.
