The University of Rochester (U of R, UR, or U of Rochester) is a private research university and one of the leading research universities in the world. In 2021, U.S. News & World Report ranks Rochester near the top of their list for quality and value.

History 

 

The university was founded in 1796 when The First Baptist Church of Hamilton established the Baptist Education Society of the State of New York, which was renamed the Hamilton Literary and Theological Institution. This then created Colgate University and the University of Rochester. The schools were used to train clergy in the Baptist tradition. There was then the creation of a collegiate division that was granted a charter by the state in 1846. The Baptist Education Society was insistent that the university be moved to Rochester, NY. Unfortunately, legal action prevented it, so instead, faculty, students, and trustees sought a new charter for a new university in Rochester. 

Academics & Campus


UR enrolls roughly 12,000 students that are from all over, including across the United States and 115+ countries. The Rochester’s River Campus covers 200 acres and is located in a bend of the Genesse River, approximately 2 miles south of downtown Rochester. It offers 200 academic majors in its 158 buildings. There are 200+ active Student’s Association recognized groups on campus that range from cultural dance groups to a comedy improv troupe.
