Current REU

Dorm/Mail

On campus housing is at the University of Rochester's River Campus.

There are usually very good links to frequently asked questions from the Summer Housing website - however in 2021 things got more than a bit chaotic with residential life so they did not update the Information Manual for Summer Program Participants.  https://www.rochester.edu/reslife/summer/

Dorm

Each bedroom has one or two twin beds. Most of the rooms are doubles. Roommates will be assigned by the program and everyone should list their assigned roommate on the Residential Life form.   As of mid May we do not know which dorm will be assigned to the summer programs.  Laundry is free in the dorms.
 
Mail/packages

The post office and bank (JP Morgan Chase) are located in the lower level of Todd Union Bldg.
Mail and packages may be addressed to:
Student Name
UR summer program student
500 Joseph C. Wilson Blvd.
Rochester, NY 14627-0002

A list of non-UR students will be sent to the post office with emails so we hope you will receive an email when the package is received.  They are open from 9-5 Monday-Friday.  However, the mail room has been buried under packages for students what with all the online shopping so we suggest you use Plan B below.
Plan B is to have your package sent to the Physics Department Office.  We will give the person at the reception desk at the Department the list of REU participants so she knows who to contact when a package arrives. Be sure to 'track' your package if possible.
That address is
Your Name
University of Rochester
Dept of Physics, Bausch and Lomb Bldg
284 Hutchison Road
Rochester, NY 14627
