One of the most exciting aspects of the college experience is finding the right place to live, and U-M students have a wide variety of housing options to choose from.
Michigan Housing serves as home for undergraduate students, graduate students, and students with families. Facilities include 18 residence halls as well as nearly 1,500 apartments located on North Campus. But it’s far more than just a place for resting or studying. Each residence hall is a unique community that fosters a sense of belonging and helps students connect with others. The warm community spirit and supportive residential staff make oncampus housing a popular choice for first-year and transfer students.
