Visit

With a rich history encompassing over 175 years, RIT invites students, employers, companies, parents, and alumni to learn more about our dynamic academic programs and our ever-changing campus.

Latest Updates

We are following the current COVID-19 situation moment-by-moment and using the best information possible (i.e. CDC, Rochester-based health agencies, location-specific information, etc.) in deciding when our campus can reopen and visitors may return. While nothing beats experiencing RIT in-person, the virtual options below are the next best thing. If you have any questions, please contact us at 585-475-6631 or admissions@rit.edu.

Prospective Undergraduate Students

While we continue to do our part to flatten the curve, you can still experience RIT. Get information about admission, financial aid, student life, and academics from the comfort of home. We look forward to hosting events when we can be together again on campus soon.
