The Disability Services Office is dedicated to facilitating equitable access to the full RIT experience for students with disabilities. We value disability as diversity and work in collaboration with campus partners to foster a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive campus community.

To protect the safety of our staff, students, and faculty, all meetings with the Disability Services Office are virtual, unless noted otherwise. We are available both in the office and virtually each weekday between 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Please contact the office at [email protected].
