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.
Parking and Transportation Services provides a shuttle service with scheduled stops around the RIT campus, housing, and select adjacent apartment complexes. Schedules are available at rit.edu/parking/transportation/bus. Track your bus and receive real time updates using the free TransLoc app.
In addition, the Off Campus Express shuttle route connects you to the RTS routes servicing Henrietta and the Rochester area. For information about parking registration and permits, visit rit.edu/parking.
There are a number of area hotels that are accessible within 10-15 minutes of the RIT campus. To make accommodations with an area hotel, review our comprehensive list to assist you as you prepare for your arrival to RIT.
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.
