Health and Wellness Resources
Student Health Center
The Student Health Center provides primary and urgent care services to RIT students, ranging from support for acute medical concerns to sexual health and immunizations. The office has limited commonly prescribed medications on site and can assist with prescription delivery options for students who must fill prescription medications away from home. The Student Health Center also provides information on student health insurance.
Counseling and Psychological Services
Counseling and Psychological Services offers short-term, goal-focused individual therapy, group therapy, crisis support, and psychiatric services in an open, safe, and confidential environment. If your student regularly sees a professional for counseling or needs long-term or specialized treatment, we recommend continuing treatment with their current provider or contacting our Case Management team for off-campus options.
The Case Management team assists students in connecting to resources on and off campus, as well as helping students navigate complex personal problems including health insurance, food and housing insecurity, financial concerns, and more. As it takes time to connect off-campus, early planning is encouraged for students who may benefit from these additional resources.
Disability Services employs an interactive, student-centered process to determine and approve reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities. Accommodations can help mitigate barriers in any facet of the RIT experience, whether academic, residential, or co-curricular, and may support needs related to mental health, learning, chronic illness, communication, mobility, and more. Students are encouraged to connect with the Disability Services Office as early as possible, as accommodations are not retroactive.
Wellness at RIT
Our multifaceted approach to student wellness encompasses all aspects of personal well-being, including physical and emotional health and a range of innovative and inclusive programs, services, and education. This includes intramurals, outdoor recreation, required wellness education courses, and more.
