Transfer Housing & Dining

Statement About On-Campus Housing for Transfers

Most University of Rochester students live on campus (~84%), and UR welcomes transfer students to join our residential undergraduate community as much as possible.

To support student goals, UR has built and sustains many different kinds of campus housing; yet in recent years the popularity of all of our facilities has exceeded the number of available spaces.

Housing for incoming transfer students for the fall will be limited.  Most students will need to seek off-campus housing with support from people and sites listed on this page.

By the numbers

During the most recent years, on average about 65 entering transfer students apply for fall housing and about 15 entering students request campus housing for spring term. Each year, UR has been able to accommodate about 20 transfer students for fall term housing and approximately 15 starting in January for spring term housing. Those students who we were not able to accommodate in the fall and who still desire housing, were able to secure on campus housing for spring term.

On-campus housing contracts and additional information for off-campus housing resources will be sent to you in the mail. To express your interest in on-campus housing please return your contract to Residential Life to be added to a waitlist as soon as possible.  Residential Life will do their best to accommodate as many transfers as they can.  Transfer housing assignments will not be made until the middle of July at the earliest.  Some housing assignments will come later, closer to the start of classes or even during the first week of classes as availability is determined.     

Real options

Many UR transfer students live off-campus in apartments or shared homes in student-friendly Rochester neighborhoods. There are some transfer students who prefer to live off-campus and never apply for on campus housing. Others have sought housing off-campus for one or two semesters because they were unsuccessful in their first attempt to get a campus housing assignment.

Off-campus housing options for college students in Rochester are affordable, safe, can offer both parking and/or public transportation options, and come in a range of prices and lifestyles. Students seeking off-campus housing can depend on support from the Office of Residential Life while finding a good match for their educational plans.

  • 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
