Graduate student resources

Helping University of Rochester graduate students and postdocs succeed in their research, classwork, and beyond

The goal of the University Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Affairs office is to support our graduate students through all their endeavors. From support in the classroom and life outside the classroom, financial resources to professional development, and more.

This website serves as a comprehensive resource for our current master’s students, postdoctoral associates, and others in our graduate student community.

Still making your graduate school decision? We encourage you to visit the University’s primary Admissions, Academics, and Programs pages to learn more about what Rochester has to offer.
