How is RIT/NTID different from other colleges and universities?

With more than 1,200 deaf and hard-of-hearing students and 16,000 hearing students on campus, RIT/NTID offers you a unique opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds! Our students come to RIT/NTID from all over the United States and the world, bringing with them a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. Find out why RIT is the right fit for them.

How do I buy my books if VR is paying for them?

Go to the Barnes & Noble college bookstore at RIT. Go to any register. Ask if they have your VR book authorization. If yes, go buy your books.
