There are a limited number of computers in various locations for student use during Summer Session. The Internet Café in the basement of the Main Building has computers that are available for Internet access; however, printers are not available.

ID Cards for Summer Students

Students registered for in-person collegiate courses and institutes will be issued a University identification card at their program orientation or first class meeting. An ID card is required for access to all buildings and areas of the campus. The ID card also allows Summer participants to attend concerts for free. All Visitor ID cards must be returned at the student’s last class session.

Public Safety

Downtown Rochester is an urban setting with occasional cases of criminal activity. Summer students and participants should not walk alone or display their valuables (ex. cell phone). For tips on how to avoid being a victim, please read the University of Rochester’s Public Safety document, especially pages 5-6.


The University of Rochester uses the online system Blackboard to manage student accounts and course communication. New Summer@Eastman students will receive an email from the University with instructions for setting up a Blackboard account (the message is sent out automatically to all new registering students as accounts are created). If you have questions or need help setting up your account, please contact Eastman’s Office of Technology & Media Production at
