Many students, especially graduate students, choose to live off campus. The rent may be lower than on campus, but be aware of additional costs (utilities, fees, furniture rental, etc.) that vary greatly from place to place. A very important consideration is access to a bus line. Be sure to check the Rochester public bus map and only rent an apartment that is served by a bus line.
