Most of our properties are within walking distance to the University of Rochester. We also have homes with convenient bus transportation. We have chosen ideal locations adjacent to UofR. Our properties are in neighborhoods bordering the University. The proximity of our homes to the University and bus lines, such as the U of R shuttle and RTS stops, makes them ideal for International students who do not have cars. It is also convenient to travel on a bike.
