About Rochester, NY

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.
