Policies and Guidelines

At the University of Rochester, graduate and family housing residents expect their housing communities to be places where they:

  • Pursue their 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 their community through events and programs regularly planned by the residential life staff
  • Are respected for who they are—where differences are not only tolerated but also celebrated
  • Take responsibility for their actions
  • Respect the rights of others
  • Understand the importance of compromise
  • Uphold the standards of the community for the good of the entire community
