Health and Wellness Services

Case Management

The Case Management team is available to assist you in connecting to resources on- and off-campus. Since it takes time to schedule off-campus appointments, early planning is encouraged. We are also available to help you navigate your health insurance coverage to ensure you will be covered in the Rochester area. Learn more about Case Management.

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. Learn more about Counseling and Psychological Services.

Disability Services

The Disability Services Office works in collaboration with partners across RIT to foster a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive campus community. RIT students that identify as having a permanent or temporary disability are encouraged to register with our office and request accommodations. Learn more about Disability Services.
