The Wilmot house is great! Right across from College Town and a a bus to campus as well as a <15 min walk to campus (even through the hospital when it is cold). RocRooms has been a great organization to deal with. Everything is streamlined and any questions have been answered promptly. Zero issues with customer service and a great location! Happy to have rented through them. Sure, they may not be the cheapest option, but what you get is definitely a good value and still considerably cheaper than on-campus undergraduate housing.

The Wilmont House was an excellent place to sublet from this past summer. I was finishing my Master’s and had to take a class in Strong Memorial Hospital. The walk was only 5 minutes and convenient since I had class 4 days a week. The house itself was excellent. I was able to use the full kitchen to cook myself meals daily. I used the living room to hang out and relax. I thought it was great the RocRooms provides a tv that includes basic cable and a Roku. I was able to watch World Cup this summer and catch up on some of my Netflix shows. My room was also spacious. It allowed me to have a sleeping and studying area. I also had enough room to do yoga daily. Overall, I’m highly appreciative that I found RocRooms to sublet from this summer. It was a great summer living experience.

This summer I stayed in RocRooms at the 60 Congress Ave location in Rochester NY. I needed the apartment for the summer and the staff was very helpful in getting me a lease that would work for me. I was able to get a lease for the time I needed at a reasonable price considering that everything was included in the price. Since I was only there for 12 weeks I found it extremely worth it to have a price that included everything such as internet, cleaning, washer/dryer etc. The house was well maintained and the staff was quick to answer if there was any concerns. I highly recommend this housing option for anyone looking for cheap, easy housing.

I highly recommend RocRooms for your off-campus housing because the price is reasonable and the staff are extremely helpful if you have any problems for your housing. One of the staffs who work at RocRooms, Holden, is very friendly and responsible for his job. He helps me a lot about fixing some issues at the room. I would highly recommend people to consider renting room from RocRooms and I am believe you will like it!!

Extremely good quality/cost ratio. I’ve been renting a room in Edgemont house for a few years now and it’s really good. It’s really close to campus which is really convenient. And it’s in a really quiet area and close to the Canal trail!

I would recommend RocRooms to anyone looking for housing in the Rochester Area. I had a few concerns when I was first looking for housing but the Roc Rooms staff answered all of my questions very quickly and helped me to secure my living arrangements for the summer. I was also pleased with the pricing and the fact that the rent included utilities, internet, and a once a month cleaning service. I am also a fan of the online payment system they have in place, it made payments and record keeping very simple and efficient.

I would highly recommend RocRooms to anyone. The house was well maintained, and any time there were any maintenance or utility problems with the house the managers were quick to respond and repair any problems. The pricing was very fair, and it was very convenient to have all utility and electric costs included in the rent.

The RocRooms team were seriously the best landlords I’ve ever had! I think the monthly cleanings are really awesome of them to offer and moving into a fully furnished house was super convenient and exactly what I needed for my year in Rochester!
Hector de la Torre reviewed Roc Rooms & Rentals — 5 star
RocRooms made my rent experience pleasant! I moved to Rochester from Spain and did not know anything about the city or best places to live. They suggested several house in great locations to choose from. They also assigned me two roommates who were students at UoR as well (I think all the tenants must be students at a university). Besides, all utilities are included in the monthly rent payment and they come once a month to the house to clean all the common areas (they do not enter the rooms so you can have your privacy). Prices are competitive and include furniture and all those services. I have been a tenant for the past 8 years and never had a house as clean as this one.
Summarizing, they are a friendly company who are always willing to help and to talk when there is any problem. I strongly recommend them if you are looking for a place to live in Rochester.

The apartment that I live is very comfortable and nice to live. It’s near my university. We have monthly house cleaning and every time the cleaner will place the toys on our sofa in a specific order which is really cute. Anyway, it’s a good place to live.

Mikaela David reviewed Roc Rooms & Rentals — 4 star
Rooms & Rentals are very clean, afforable and most of all easy for college students. The staff is very helpful. The cleaning team did a great job every month. The house I was staying in had other tenants that were reasonable and nice people. I would recommend renting from Roc Rooms if you are a Rochester college student looking to move off-campus at an affordable price, looking for good atmosphere and a furnished home.
Nick Giangreco reviewed Roc Rooms & Rentals — 5 star
I highly recommend RocRooms not just for the low rate of room rentals, but also for their responsiveness and care to your concerns. The house I lived in had a couple issues but after writing to the handyman on their website (they have everything you need right in your online account) the issue was resolved within a few days. Also, I’m a big fan of their rent payment system (online, so easy!) and how responsive the RocRooms staff were and still are to my emails. From a student’s perspective, RocRooms is a great alternative to the high rate of student housing and I would definitely rent from them again if I’m back in the area.
Myriah LaTourette reviewed Roc Rooms & Rentals — 5 star
I highly recommend Roc Rooms! The price is very reasonable considering the quality of the house and the services we received. The management was quick to respond when we had issues and they made sure that things were taken care of ASAP. Online accounts made it easy to pay rent, send maintenance requests and communicate with RocRooms staff. The provided utilities were also great and affordable. If I ever have to live in the area again, I would certainly rent from them again.

“I had a wonderful experience renting a room in the Terrace Park house during my Master’s year at the University of Rochester. The location was perfect, only a 15 minute walk across the footbridge to the River campus. The second selling point was the fact that the house was fully furnished. Instead of having to spend time and money searching for furniture I was able to move my stuff into my room. The third selling point was the fact that all the utilities, including internet and cable, were already included in the monthly rent. A major bonus is the monthly cleaning service and a free washing and drying machines. Like any place the house has its flaws. The house is old, small and only has one bathroom so be prepared to share the living space with other people (including members of the opposite gender). The house is located in the 19th ward which has earned a questionable reputation among students. I have found this reputation to be grossly exaggerated. I have never once been troubled by locals on my trips to the University (even when traveling late at night). Like any urban neighborhood you need to use common sense like being alert when going out and locking the doors and windows after leaving the house (once when the house was unlocked a laptop was stolen). Still I have found Terrace Park to a quiet working class neighborhood where families and students reside peacefully together.I have found the ROC staff to be a great resource. Whenever I contacted them with a problem they quickly responded. They are extremely efficient whether it’s a mechanical or a housemate issue. Their professionalism combined with a friendly nature makes them extremely easy to work with.I would highly recommend ROC housing to local university students looking for a place to stay. My house’s location combined with being fully furnished and all the great services included made it the perfect fit for me during a very challenging academic year.”
“Renting with RocRooms has been easy, dependable and affordable. Being from RIT with a mandatory co-op program, I knew I was going to be away for at least a year. Having dealt with subletting and paying for an uninhabited apartment before; only RocRooms has been able to work with me in finding sublets. Being gone for 9 months, I would have been out $4,275 paying for rent but thanks to Brett’s help I only paid a small sublet fee. Coupled with the reliable maintenance, affordable rent and the free effortless monthly online payments, I know for sure that I will be living with RocRooms for the remainder of my college years.”
“I so appreciate your promptness and willingness to work with us on this, Brett. I’m impressed by your business practices. My son needed to find a room near the Univ. of Rochester in advance of starting school, but wasn’t able to visit in person. We were very impressed by the service we received through RocRooms. Their website is very informative and easy to navigate, and Brett answered all of our emails within just a few hours. We especially appreciated being able to switch to another location when my son changed his mind about where he wanted to live. Arranging for housing at a distance is always harder than doing so in person, but Brett made it very easy. We live in another university town, and we wish our community had a company like this!”
“Wowww you are such a NICE landlord”
Jennifer Olson (Student, University of Rochester)
“My plan was to find a house that myself and a couple friends could live in together during the school year in order to not have to pay for really expensive campus housing. We found a house through Roc Rooms and Rentals that was a very short distance from campus and costs about half as much as living in the dorms! I was very apprehensive when it came to signing the lease though. I was not sure if I would be going abroad in the spring and I was not able to stay in Rochester during the summer months. Brett called me after he noticed that I was taking an exceptionally long time to sign the lease, and by talking me through all my options, he really made my situation a lot less stressful. I had always thought that people who worked in the housing business were just out to get as much of the renter’s money as possible. This is not what I found with Roc Rooms and Rentals. While talking on the phone with Brett, he said that in the past three years, they haven’t had a single room go vacant and that they would be sure to fill it while I was abroad. Not only that, but for the summer months, they would cover the sublet cost for me. A business that was out to get my money would definitely not be giving me the option to sublet for FREE!! When I heard that they were going to cover my subletting fee for the summer, I knew that Roc Rooms and Rentals was a business that actually cares about the renter and works with the renter to make sure they are in the best situation possible. My experience with Roc Rooms and Rentals has been nothing less than exceptional. They are a business that I can trust and feel comfortable with. Plus, they are saving me THOUSANDS of dollars in housing costs!!! Roc Rooms and Rentals is AWESOME! “
Marc (Graduate Student, University of Rochester)
“As a University of Rochester graduate student and newcomer to the Rochester area, I greatly appreciated the all-inclusive package offered by RocRooms. The fact that they put everything together so that I as a tenant could focus on my studies really helped save me a lot of time and energy in looking for housing! There were some growing pains throughout the process, but I appreciated the staff’s great response to my feedback, and I believe they are committed to building a great experience for any and every student looking for convenient and affordable housing in Rochester. “

“Moving into a new place is often stressful. I can empathize with feelings of apprehension about a new place and new roommates. After I met with Jesse and toured his property, I knew it was a great fit for me. My apartment is spacious, located close to several things in Rochester, always has street parking and the best part is, I pay ONE bill per month! Jesse has been an exemplary landlord. He goes above and beyond to answer questions, fit your needs for housing and take care of any property issues that may arise. His professionalism and compassion make him a great person to rent from.”
Ekaterina Mishnaevski (University of Rochester Intern)
“I came to Rochester to finish my medical internship at the University of Rochester; one of the biggest issues we came across was finding an affordable place to live. I spoke with a friend of ours and he recommended Roc Rooms and Rentals. I used the website to view the homes and was very impressed with the functionality and the quality of their homes. The website listed the available dates, price per room, pictures of the homes, and all the amenities of each individual room. I met with Brett the property manager who gave me a tour of the home; he went of his way to help us with the move. We did not have any furniture to move in, he provided us with two futons and two full size beds without any extra cost. The home was freshly painted, cleaned very thoroughly, and the floors refinished. They also provided us with a washer and dryer with no extra cost. As a student I find Roc Rooms to be a very convenient alternative to campus living. The house is very close to the University, only a 15 minute walk and I love living with other students in the neighborhood. Roc Rooms provided us with a one of a kind service, and a wonderful house with low rent that we could not find anywhere else. I am going to finish my internship in a few months and plan on coming back to Rochester. Now that I can count on Roc Rooms with providing me with housing it is one less problem that I have to worry about. Thank you Roc Rooms and Rentals!!!!”

“I choose Roc Rooms and Rentals because they offer housing that is very flexible and because of the ease of paying only bill each month. I first moved in March of 2008. The experience living at Roc Rooms and Rentals has been very enjoyable and low stress. I would recommend Roc Rooms and Rentals to anyone who would listen to me. This living set up is not only good for students but young professionals as well. The company offers everything a person could need. They include washer and dryer, all appliances and room furnishings. The prices at Roc Rooms are very fair and much cheaper than staying in a dorm. When I first began looking for a place to live I compared the prices from a single RIT dorm for one quarter and was able to save over $900 by choosing Roc Rooms.”
