RIT Housing Guidelines
Students who reside in RIT housing are allowed to host one guest in their living space provided that the guest is also an RIT student who is currently approved to circulate on campus. All other visitors are still prohibited from entering RIT Housing.
As a result of this change, the maximum occupancy for a standard double occupancy residence hall room is three students. The maximum occupancy in RIT apartments and suites is equal to double the number of residents assigned to the apartment or suite, provided all conditions below can be met.
- No more than one guest per resident at any time;
- Physical distancing, mask-wearing, and maximum occupancy requirements shall be maintained throughout the guest visit. If physical distancing and maximum occupancy requirements are not maintained, the guest shall leave;
- Any guests in the room/apartment must be agreed upon by room/suitemates, or the visit must happen in a common area (e.g., lounge) of the residence hall, or a private bedroom (one-person bedroom);
- Personal aides, nurses, caregivers, or any other reasonable accommodations provided to students with disabilities are not counted as guests.
If there is an increase in the prevalence of COVID-19 in the RIT community, this adjustment will be rolled back, and students within communities will not be able to host guests in their living spaces.
