Graduate housingUniversity Housing

The University of Rochester maintains three apartment complexes that serve graduate students, medical students, and postgraduate trainees (including postdoctoral trainees and fellows, residents, interns, and fellows of the School of Medicine and Dentistry).

  • Goler House is 13-story high-rise building immediately adjacent to the Medical Center. The building has studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments. Some of the Goler House apartments are furnished.
  • University Park (UPK) is a lawn-bordered apartment complex of two-story buildings with studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom unfurnished apartments. It is about a five-minute walk from the Medical Center.
  • Whipple Park (WPK) is located in a park-like setting bordered by wooded areas and is approximately one mile from the Medical Center. The complex has two-bedroom garden apartments and two- and three-bedroom town houses.

Visit the Office for Residential Life & Housing Services to learn more, find rent rates, and apply for campus housing. The Graduate Housing Lottery is traditionally held in early May.

Off-Campus Housing

The Off-Campus Living Program provides assistance, education, and support to members of the University of Rochester community who are seeking housing or residing off campus.

Housing in the White Coat District (Upper Mount Hope Neighborhood) is especially convenient for walking to the Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology (265 Crittenden Blvd, Rochester, NY). Students may also want to explore the variety of Rochester's city neighborhoods and Monroe County's towns and villages.

Getting around Rochester: Free shuttle bus service is provided to persons with University ID among the campuses and many other locations throughout the area. Learn about additional transportation options.
