Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science
Department Facilities and Building Regulations

The Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science is located in the Chester F. Carlson Building, a four-level structure located on the northwest corner of the campus, encompassing approximately 70,000 square feet. This building houses teaching laboratories, classrooms, faculty offices, research laboratories and a 150 seat auditorium. The building is a center for imaging education, research, and professional activity in the Rochester area.

The department office is located in Room 2260. Student records and various records information forms are housed in building 8 Room 1114. The records secretary, will greet you as you come in the office. She will answer your questions or direct you to the most knowledgeable source for the answer to your question.

Student mail folders are located in the Northeast corner of the foyer in building 76. All inter-departmental mail, schedule verifications, grade reports, and messages will be delivered to you through this mail folder. Please check this folder daily.

Telephone calls for students cannot be accepted in the department office, except in emergency situations. Several pay telephones are located throughout the campus for student use.

The Graduate Student Offices are located on the first and second floor of the Carlson building, Rooms 1220, 2201, and 2204. The offices are open to all graduate students for research and study. Space is available, Ph.D. students may be assigned into Graduate Study rooms on the second floor after successful completion of the comprehensive exams.

Cameras and other photographic equipment are available for loan. A list of the available equipment is available from Professor Jeff Pelz. School of Photographic Arts and Sciences [SPAS] darkrooms and equipment are generally not available to Imaging Science students. Occasionally these facilities can be arranged for special projects. They are also available to any student who enrolls in a SPAS course for credit for the duration of the course. However, these courses are generally not acceptable for Imaging Science degree credit. Students are responsible for the safe return of all borrowed items. Liability for or replacement of equipment due to accident or loss is the responsibility of the student to whom the equipment was loaned.

ID card photos will be taken as noted in the Schedule of Courses. The RIT ID card is permanent and must be revalidated each quarter at the time of registration. Replacement charge for a lost card is $5.00; $10.00 for a meal plan card. Financial commitment is necessary for ID card validation.

Personal property is the responsibility of the student. RIT and the Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science assumes no responsibility for items belonging to students. Campus Safety has indelible markers for those who wish to use them. Found items may be turned in to the department office.

Pets are not allowed on the RIT campus. Seeing-eye or hearing-ear dogs are permitted to accompany their owners.

Smoking, in accordance with the County of Monroe regulations, is permitted only in designated areas on campus. There is no smoking in the buildings, except for designated areas in the College Union cafeteria and Ritskeller.

Safety rules within the Center require that all accidents and injuries be reported to the instructor in charge of the facility at the time of the accident, to the Coordinator of the degree program, and to Campus Safety.

Shoes must be worn in all classrooms and laboratories in accordance with RIT safety regulations.

Fire alarms indicate that all students, faculty and staff must vacate the building immediately. When leaving, turn off running water and electrical power and lock the area you are vacating.
