This complex of cedar-shingled, two-story buildings constructed in 1968 has a combination of two-bedroom garden apartments and two- and three-bedroom town houses totaling 250 units. Whipple Park (WPK) is in a park-like setting bordered by wooded areas. While certainly walkable, it is a short 5-minute University shuttle ride to the Medical Campus and 15 minute shuttle ride to the River Campus.
Whipple Park has landscaped grounds, a community garden, and low street noise. There are adequate parking facilities. Town houses have laundry connections and are individually metered for electric service. Each town house has a small basement (they vary in size) suitable for storage only—no one may be housed in the basement. Several garden apartments have been modified to accommodate students with disabilities. Applicants with children are given priority for Whipple Park town houses. Whipple Park is in the Rush-Henrietta School District and their school buses come to the Whipple Park parking lot.
