Off-campus Housing


The Office for Off Campus Living Programs provides assistance, education, and support to members of the University of Rochester community who are seeking housing or residing off campus. We assist all University of Rochester students, both graduate and undergraduates, in all colleges at the University.

The Office for Off Campus Living Programs:

  • Assists University of Rochester students, faculty, and staff locate rental housing in the area
  • Operates the Off Campus Living Search, our property listing database
  • Educates students about how to be good neighbors and tenants
  • Organizes events, activities, and leadership opportunities for students living off campus
  • Works with neighborhood associations and service centers to maintain open communication and promote strong community ties
  • Assists with student/landlord dispute resolution and communication
  • Advises off campus student organizations.

Off Campus Housing Search

We maintain a self-serve housing search which offers students the convenience of searching for suitable off campus housing opportunities. Landlords have the opportunity to list rental properties, free of charge, to students and University members wishing to live off campus. Students can also search for roommates on this search under “shared housing”.
