The Office for Off Campus Living Programs offers assistance, education, and support to students who are looking for housing or residing off campus. The City of Rochester has a wide range of rental housing types in many price ranges throughout Rochester neighborhoods.
The Office for Off Campus Living Programs operates a rental property search site, Off Campus Connection, exclusively designed for the University community:http://www.rochester.edu/reslife/offcampus.
In addition to Off Campus Connection listings, there are several other avenues available to those who desire off campus housing. Housing opportunities are listed in the classified section of the local newspaper, real estate agents often provide listings (this service may entail a fee), and there are other search sites such as Craigslist (http://rochester.craigslist.org), Rent Rochester (http://www.rentrochester.com), Cheap Appartments (http://www.MyCheapApartments.com), AppartmentLists (https://www.apartmentlist.com/ny/rochester#map), Trulia (http://www.trulia.com/for_rent/Rochester,NY/), Zillow (http://www.zillow.com/rochester-ny/rent-houses/), and Hotpads (https://hotpads.com/rochester-ny/apartments-for-rent). It is also recommended that students go up and down the streets they particularly like since vacancies are often publicized via “For Rent” signs.
