One of the oldest of the Special Interest Houses, Photo House was founded September 1, 1972. Little is recorded about the dormitory; Photo House did dissolve November 6, 1994. Due to student efforts, Photo House was re-established and celebrated its 40th Anniversary during RIT Brick City Weekend for the 2011-2012 school year. It is currently on the 4th floor of the Nathaniel Rochester Hall dormitory. The Photo House floor includes a darkroom, studio, print finishing room, and gallery for students to use.
