It is never too early to begin exploring your housing and transportation options, get started today.



Both on-campus and off-campus housing options are available to all Warner students.

On-campus Housing

Students enrolling at the Warner School can take advantage of the University of Rochester graduate housing for students and their families. There are a variety of housing opportunities adjacent to campus, including a high-rise apartment building and townhouses.

On-campus housing has limited space available, so we encourage you to participate in the housing lottery, which requires you to submit a completed application by early May. Aside from the lottery you can submit a housing application, but availability is not guaranteed.
Staff is available to provide support, address concerns, and encourage involvement in our graduate communities. Details about housing choices, photos, the lottery, and contact information are available through the link below.

Maps of Rochester, renter’s insurance information, safety checklists, and other information can also be obtained through the office.
