Riverview Apartments

The Riverview Apartments are a beautiful apartment complex for juniors and seniors located right across the Genesee River within view of campus. The Riverview Apartments were constructed in a joint undertaking between a private developer and the University in 2008. The area was named after the view of the Genesee River.

These buildings offer various accommodations, including private bedrooms and bathrooms in two-, three-, and four-person bedroom apartments with full kitchens. They feature private bedroom apartments with air conditioning, wireless and wired internet connections, and laundry facilities in each building. The total occupancy is 500 students.

Maintenance in Riverview works differently than River Campus, and our management company has an office on the first floor of Building C to assist you. Although maintenance is different, ResNet service is the same as on campus. You can have a group 3 meal plan in Riverview.

Many students use the Gold Line Shuttle to and from campus. While it doesn’t run 24/7, it covers a good portion of the daytime and evening hours. There is also weekend afternoon bus service to campus.
