About University of Rochester

The University of Rochester, founded in 1850, is a private, non-profit research university located in Rochester, New York. 6,170 undergraduates and 3,446 graduate students (2016-17) enjoy a choice of over 200 majors and an enviable 10:1 student to teacher ratio. There are no required courses allowing students to follow their academic passions and complete a double or even triple major. The ground-breaking 'Take Five Scholars' program allows students to apply for full funding for an additional year in an unrelated field to encourage them to broaden their knowledge.

River Campus, which is located around two miles south of downtown Rochester, is the main campus. It houses the Faculty of Arts, Sciences and Engineering, the Simon Business School, the Warner School of Education and the landmark Rush Rees Library. At the heart of River Campus is the 'Quad' where students gather under the trees in summertime to study and discuss how the university athletics teams, known as the Yellowjackets, are doing. Additional campuses are connected to River Campus by a shuttle bus system and include the Eastman School of Music, located in Rochester's cultural district, and South Campus which houses the Omega laser, the largest direct-drive laser facility in the world.
