Campus Life

RIT is committed to offering a vibrant student experience while staying healthy and safe on campus.

Event Safety Guidelines

To better protect the RIT community, large-scale indoor public events will have additional safety requirements. These guidelines will be revisited periodically and revised, depending on public health concerns and warnings. The current guidelines cover masking, food served at events, and vaccination requirements.
