On campus housing is at the University of Rochester's River Campus as well as across the river and at dorms just south of 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. The link here to resident life - summer that will have a link to the dorm we were assigned for summer -
In summer 2023 the dorm has not yet been assigned by residential life - check back in late spring ! Housing logistics will be handled by the Kearns Center at the University. More details to come.
The UR Residential Life Summer website has the Required APPLY FOR SPECIAL PROGRAMS SUMMER HOUSING form to fill out (last link to the online form on the UR summer housing page for ALL those in Brooks Crossing with the Physics REU program - even if self-pay. The form must be completed in advance of arrival or will not be allowed to check-in.
Charges are by the week starting on Sunday with departure on Saturdays. We know some have different arrive/depart dates; please confirm any different dates. We have to send an estimated list of rooms and number of weeks needed by mid April and specifics about each person with arrival/depart date and other details in late April/early May.
It would be very helpful if those that are driving to Rochester bring with them cooking/eating supplies and anything else that is not easily transported by those that arrive by plane! Sometimes students ship themselves a small box or two in advance. Please do not make the boxes too heavy. We have a couple of sets of sheets and a few towels and a shopping trip will be arranged. There is also a dollar general store near campus.
The post office and bank (JP Morgan Chase) are located in the lower level of Todd Union Bldg.
You canhave your packages 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.
