Support RU Students In Need

The purpose of this fund is to address financial emergencies students may encounter throughout the school year. Students may request funds for an emergency situation under compelling circumstances that jeopardize their ability to successfully continue at Rochester University.
These include the following:

  • Urgent expenses related to off-campus housing
  • Meals
  • Books
  • Transportation including car repairs
  • Emergency health care expenses that are not covered by insurance (i.e. co-pays)
  • Childcare
  • Travel in the case of the death or illness of an immediate family member

Other special circumstances will be determined by a review committee. Students may request funds by emailing Rochester University’s Dean of Students.
