Wellness is a key component of student life at RIT.
Our multifaceted approach to student wellness encompasses all aspects of your personal well-being, including physical and emotional health as well as accessibility. We are here to support you during your time at RIT, and prepare you for continued success and growth through our innovative and inclusive programs, services, and education.
Tigers Care is a campus-wide effort to enhance, promote, and sustain a culture of care and support at RIT. It’s who we are, how we act, and how we treat one another.
Workshops and Outreach Groups
Did you know workshops and outreach groups are offered at different points throughout the semester to provide additional support to RIT students? You do not need to be connected to Counseling and Psychological Services for treatment to attend these sessions.
Activities and Recreation
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.
Emergency Support Resources
RIT is committed to a safe and secure learning and working environment.
If you think that you or another person is in immediate risk or in danger:
Call Public Safety
if you are on campus
if you are off-campus
