Life at Warner
Accessibility Issues/Students with Disabilities
The Warner School and the University of Rochester welcome applications from students with disabilities. The University employs professional staff committed to assisting students with disabilities in the classroom, residence halls, libraries, and elsewhere on campus.
It is a personal decision to disclose the existence of a disability and to request an accommodation. A decision not to disclose will be respected. Students who request an accommodation must provide appropriate documentation to the Disability Coordinator. The University remains flexible regarding the types of reasonable accommodations that can be made. Students with disabilities are invited to offer suggestions for accommodations.
Information on specific accommodations may be found at www.rochester.edu/disability.
Report a disability related accessibility concern at rochester.edu/eoc/notification.
Conflict Management/Resolution & Mediation
The associate dean of Graduate Studies is available to respond to questions and issues regarding conflict management, resolution and mediation, including sexual harassment, grade disputes, and other issues.

Parking (109 Fauver Stadium)
Student Parking Resources
You will need to purchase a parking permit unless all your classes meet after 7:00 p.m.; University Parking staff are vigilant in enforcing parking regulations, and you will receive a ticket if you park illegally, even if for 15 minutes.
If you are only taking one class, be sure to let the Parking Office know this fact. You may qualify for a part-time parker permit, which could save you money.
If you can find someone to carpool with, this, too, will save you on the cost of parking.
Initially, you may purchase daily parking passes at the Information Booth on Wilson Boulevard ($5 before 4:00 p.m.; $3 after 4:00 p.m.); however, the University will not allow you to continue to utilize visitor parking for an extended period of time.

Immunization Requirements (everyone born after 1956)
Failure to care for this within 30 days of starting school (45 days for non-New York State residents) will result in your being removed from classes until you are compliant with New York State immunization requirements.
New York State Public Health Law #2165 requires all full- and part-time college or university students registered for six or more credit hours per semester and born after 1956 to provide documentation of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella before they can attend college in New York. New York State Public Health Law #2167 requires colleges and universities to provide information about meningococcal meningitis (also called meningococcal disease) and vaccine availability to students. See the Meningococcal Disease Information Sheet.
∗ In addition to the New York State requirements, the UR requires all full-time students to receive a tetanus/diphtheria (Td) immunization. If you are a student from a country with a high incidence of TB, you must also have a tuberculin skin test. (See List of Countries.)
