Graduate Housing

Information about housing at the University of Rochester can be found on the Residential Life website.

Members of the University of Rochester community can choose from a wide range of living accommodations. Several styles are offered by the University. We attempt to match your rent budget, space needs, wishes with respect to privacy or a more social setting, as well as your need to be close to a particular campus area with one of the pleasant University apartment facilities. The most attractive features of all University apartment housing are convenient locations and reasonable rents. All of our facilities are well maintained and attractive to people in University life. Each complex is staffed with Graduate Community Assistants (GCAs) to assist new residents, provide activities, and to help foster a community atmosphere. The University maintains three apartment complexes that serve graduate students. Each of these complexes has close-by off-street parking, coin-operated laundry facilities, and University bus service. Those with children will find safe playgrounds at University Park and Whipple Park. These two complexes have broad lawn areas nearby for ball playing and other activities. On the other hand, Goler House (high-rise apartment building) is closer to stores, restaurants, and public transportation and has a somewhat more urban atmosphere.
