Students, faculty, and staff hail from across the globe and every state in the United States to create an inspiring place to grow and learn. Rochester’s tight-knit campuses are connected to a city where creativity and ingenuity thrive.
Most University of Rochester students live on campus for all four years of their college experience, and take full advantage of the more than 275 student clubs and organizations.
Whether they live on campus or off, our students make Rochester their home. Campus accommodations include residence halls, sororities and fraternities, apartments, and townhouses.
Rochester students are bound to find the club, group, team, ensemble, kindred spirits, or common purpose that makes their time outside of classes meaningful.
