The Whipple Park (WPK) community is conveniently located near the University of Rochester. It is approximately one mile from the Medical Center and a mile and a half from the River Campus. While certainly walkable, the University’s Shuttle Service makes it a short commute to the River Campus (15-minute) and the Medical School (12-minute).
Our community is nestled in a beautiful park-like setting bordered by wooded areas, and has a combination of two-bedroom garden apartments and two and three-bedroom townhouses totaling 250 units. Enjoy the convenience of on-site laundry service, as well as a community room that is accessible to all residents.
Our community is supported by University staff, which includes – an Assistant Director of Graduate & Family Housing, a Resident Director, Graduate Community Assistants (GCAs), and an Assignments Coordinator. They provide support, address concerns, and facilitate involvement in our communities. Equally, Rochester Management Inc., provides both office and ground services to our residents.
It is our hope that while you are a resident here, you can — pursue your academic goals in an environment conducive to learning; have buildings that are physically clean and well cared for; are encouraged to become active members of the community through events and programs regularly planned by the residential life staff; are respected for who you are—where differences are not only tolerated but also celebrated; and, are able to uphold the standards of the community for the good of the entire community.
