Housing Policies

Rochester University does not operate a dormitory or other housing facility, but will assist students in locating adequate housing near the campus. Some students find housing in a local residence hotel; others share an apartment, or rent a room from members of a local church.


Rochester University reserves the right to approve or disapprove housing on a case-by-case basis if there is concern for your academic or spiritual welfare. 


Rochester University does not operate a cafeteria. A student lounge is provided for students who wish to bring their meals from home.


Rochester University at times has maintained an intramural sports program throughout the fall and spring quarters with arrangement of local community. Basketball, badminton, and Ping-Pong are available for both men and women with prior arrangement.


We encourage you to form student-led clubs around common interests. Faculty and staff members are available for advice, and to help students access university resources. Typical interests include hiking, sports, and reading and discussing particular books.
