RIT bought the Radisson hotel near the school's sprawling Henrietta campus.

Rochester Institute of Engineering has purchased the Radisson Resort Rochester Airport at 175 Jefferson Highway, adjacent to the school’s sprawling Henrietta campus.

A deed recorded Monday at the Monroe County Clerk’s Office lists “consideration” of $2.4 million.

On Tuesday, RIT spokesperson Ellen Rosen confirmed that the college acquired the residence. Having said that, she would not say how substantially it compensated or how the building will be made use of by the college, which shut down its campus in mid-March in response to the coronavirus pandemic and exactly where in-particular person instruction resumes for the drop semester setting up Aug. 19.

“More information and facts will be forthcoming up coming 7 days,” she mentioned in an emailed assertion.

She added that the Radisson home will not home any arriving college students from affected areas who have to quarantine for 14 times, as required by New York point out and the Centers for Ailment Management and Prevention. RIT has secured much more than 600 rooms at other resorts within 15 miles of campus for that intent.
