What to Bring to Campus
When you are checking (and double-checking) each item off your college packing list, the number of things you will need for the year ahead may feel overwhelming. To make packing as easy as possible, we put together a list of the essential items you'll need to best take care of yourself at your new home away from home.
Updated Masking Mandates
Face masks are no longer required in the Student Health Center. Please continue to wear a mask if you are sick, immune compromised, or if you would like to. Staff may ask you to wear a mask at any time.
The Student Health Center at RIT provides high quality primary health care and education to students in a caring and supportive environment.
We recognize that our students come from different backgrounds and experiences, and seek to provide care that is inclusive, supportive, and accessible to all regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, or abilities. We approach health care from a holistic perspective, understanding that good health is an important component of a successful college experience.

Resources for New Students
Welcome to the RIT family! We are excited to have you join our community. Wellness is a key component of student life at RIT, and we are here to support you in developing the skills, values, and habits of good health throughout this new journey. Below are some helpful links for you to consider to get you started with the Student Health Center.
Masks can make it hard for everyone to communicate.
Now you can use TigerChat to converse with another person or group using automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology and typing. RIT Wellness service providers are equipped and ready to use the TigerChat App to help eliminate communication barriers with the RIT Community.
The Wellness Portal is a secure online website for students to access personal health information. Using your RIT username and password, students can view immunization information, health history forms, and connect with a health care professional using secure messaging.
