Upcoming Facilities

The Innovative Maker and Learning Complex

A 100,000-plus-square-foot facility will become the epicenter of what RIT represents with a huge makerspace, a black-box theater, a dance studio, and music rehearsal spaces.

Performing Arts Center

Design of a two-theater complex has just begun. The smaller theater with approximately 800 seats will house musical theater, including a historic organ. We seek to add a 1,500-seat orchestra hall for larger audiences in a second phase.
