RIT’s Global Cybersecurity Institute is Award-Winning

RIT is a leader in cybersecurity education and research, and is positioned to tackle the cybersecurity challenges facing our society.

RIT’s Global Cybersecurity Institute, designed by LaBella, will lead the charge in the education and research in the cybersecurity field. Situated centrally on the western side of campus, this building transformed a “back of house” campus void into a new gateway to the world of cybersecurity. At three stories and over 50,000 square feet, this Global Cybersecurity Institute is home to classrooms, instructional and research labs, simulation and training rooms, student collaboration and community spaces, and offices. This new facility will have a major role in facilitating special events while providing a showcase to visitors of the institute’s research and technology.

As a testament to its innovative and unique design features, LaBella was honored to be the recipient of the 2021 AIA NYS Excelsior Merit Award, New Construction and the 2021 AIA Rochester People’s Choice Award.
