Accessibility Information for Visitors

Welcome to the University of Rochester, one of the country's top-tier research universities. Our 158 buildings house more than 200 academic majors, more than 2,000 faculty and instructional staff, and some 10,500 students—approximately half of whom are women.

Learning at the University of Rochester is also on a very personal scale. Rochester remains one of the smallest and most collegiate among top research universities, with smaller classes, a low 10:1 student to teacher ratio, and increased interactions with faculty.

We are committed to making our programs and activities fully accessible to all those who work, study, or visit within our campus community. As part of this commitment, we work to ensure equal access and facilitate appropriate accommodations for people with disabilities.

If you are visiting the campus and need a reasonable accommodation or have questions about physical access, contact the department or organization that is sponsoring the event in advance of your visit or participation in a UR program. If you need additional assistance please contact Lynnett Van Slyke, University Intercessor and Director of Disability Compliance, by phone at 585-275-9125 or by e-mail at

We look forward to seeing you.
