Special Note to International Students
Begin procedures immediately to obtain all the necessary visas and other travel documents that would allow you to arrive in Rochester at least two weeks before your desired date of occupancy or the date your regular academic program is scheduled to begin. This is especially important if you have not received a written confirmation that you have been assigned a University apartment at least three weeks before your desired date of occupancy. In this event, you should presume you have not been assigned to University housing, and you should plan to arrive in Rochester one to two weeks prior to the start of your academic program to find private housing.

Be sure to bring enough money to pay for temporary housing and meals from the time of your arrival until you obtain permanent housing. In addition, you must bring money for the first month’s rent and security deposit for permanent housing.
