Welcome

Welcome to Rochester!

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

On this site, you’ll find a wealth of information for you and your family to review. Very soon, you will receive a packet in the mail that will include materials (Residential Life/Dining Services applications, Health History forms, etc.) that require your swift response. You’ll also get your Class of 2019 shirt!

Please consult the list of deadlines on this site to help keep things moving along here at Rochester. The sooner you respond to Residential Life, the better your chances are to get acquainted with your roommate over the summer.

In the meantime, if counselors or students in the Office of Admissions can provide you with any meaningful service, let them help. They can be reached at (585) 275-3221 or toll free at (888) 822-2256.

I look forward to welcoming you in person during Orientation.

Meliora!

Jonathan Burdick
Dean of College Admission
Vice-Provost for Enrollment Initiatives
