We’re here to help you make the most of your University of Rochester experience.
We also recommend downloading the UR Mobile app, which provides on-the-go access to the latest updates, events, resources like campus maps, and more.
Every year in April, we take the opportunity to celebrate and recognize all of our graduate students with panels, events, and more.
There are on-campus solutions and off-campus housing support available for our graduate student community. And, if you need help getting around campus, we’ve compiled some helpful transportation and parking resources.
Each complex is staffed with Graduate Community Assistants (GCAs) to assist new residents, provide activities, and to help foster a community atmosphere.
The Department of Transportation and Parking Management is your go-to resource for parking support on-campus.
Log into the Parking Portal to purchase a pass, view any citations, and change your vehicle details.
If you’re planning on bringing a bicycle to campus, visit the biking page to see rules, access maps, understand where you can ride and park your bike, and more. You can also register your bike for free as an added layer of safety.
Our Student Groups page includes links to a variety of graduate student-focused organizations and groups you can join.
The health and well-being of our graduate community is a crucial part of our mission. We know that there are unique stresses and challenges associated with graduate study. The University resources below are ready to help.
