Walk to Med Ctr and Nursing School in 2 minutes

Upper White Coat Neighborhood is the optimal location - 2 to 3 minutes walk to the Medical Center and you never have to use your car. Only a few more minutes to the University Main Campus. Some homes are only 75 to 100 yards from the Medical Center. The longest walk is 4 minutes.

The White Coat Village is very popular among Medical, Nursing, Simon and other University Graduate Students. Some years 50% or more of the Medical School class and a quarter of the Simon School class have been living in the White Coat Village.

Location - The location very close to the University of Rochester Medical Center drives the spectrum of tenants. Most of the tenants are related to the University of Rochester Medical Center and the Strong Memorial Hospital in one way or another. We do not restrict our tenants to just University of Rochester students, but the location has certainly influence who elects to live here.

Busy Medical Students - Several houses are typically occupied by University of Rochester medical students. This is an ideal location for the busy medical or nursing student, who does not want to spend time commuting, finding parking and who wants to live with future colleagues in an environment conducive to studying.

Tenants - It is not surprising that several houses are fully occupied by University of Rochester medical or nursing students. Other houses have graduate students at the Univerity of Rochester (working at the Medical Center),

Nursing and PhD students - nursing students typically in the accelerated programs and some PhD students have also been tenants in these houses for several years. We have also seen a few researchers and visiting professors living in our houses.
