Resources for International Students

The Office for Off-Campus Living helps international students understand and navigate the process of renting an apartment in the United States. We are here to help you locate neighborhoods that are suitable for your lifestyle and budget.

We offer off-campus housing advising, rental application and lease reviewing services, and occasional tours of Rochester neighborhoods. Our office can also provide you with maps of Rochester, renter’s insurance information, safety checklists, and other information.

Students may meet in person with the coordinator for off-campus living by calling (585) 275-3166 to schedule an appointment. Students can also email the coordinator at
