HOME

Welcome to the University of Rochester Graduate and Family Housing communities. These vibrant communities are represented by students and their families from every University of Rochester Graduate program – The College (AS&E), Hajim School of Applied Sciences and Engineering, School of Medicine and Dentistry, Nursing School, Simon School of Business, Warner School of Education, and the Eastman School of Music.

Our graduate students and their families come from all over the United States and from around the world, reflecting the diverse enrollment at the University of Rochester. Our communities encourage our residents and their families to become involved and celebrate the unique contributions each person can bring to this living and learning environment. There are many ways to participate—from potluck dinners to picnics to outings (such as apple picking) to biking to art classes and community gardens—something for everyone at the level they wish to participate.

Learn more about the application process and the different living options at the Office of Graduate Housing and Families.

ABOUT US

Our graduate communities are supported by University staff, which includes – an Assistant Director of Graduate & Family Housing, Graduate Housing Operations Manager, a Resident Director, and Graduate Community Assistants (GCAs). In addition, Rochester Management Inc. (RMI), provides on-site support that includes a Complex Superintendent and Office Manager. Together the University of Rochester and RMI provide support, address concerns, and facilitate involvement in our communities.

HOUSING AREAS

Graduate students 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 University maintains three apartment complexes that serve graduate students, medical students, and postgraduate trainees (including postdoctoral trainees and fellows, hospital house staff, and fellows of the School of Medicine and Dentistry). Each of these complexes has coin-operated laundry facilities and serviced by the University shuttle system. People with children will find safe playgrounds at Whipple Park. Both University Park and Whipple Park have broad lawn areas nearby for picnicking, volleyball, and other activities. On the other hand, Goler House (high-rise apartment building) is closer to the College Town stores, restaurants, and public transportation.

Our communities encourage our residents and their families to become involved and celebrate the unique contributions each person can bring to this living and learning environment. There are many ways to participate—from potluck dinners to picnics, outings (such as apple picking) to biking, art classes to community gardening—with something for everyone at the level they wish to participate.
