U-M students have a variety of residence options to choose from, although students are not required to live on campus.

University Housing offers 18 residence halls for students. Two on-campus housing options for military-connected students are Oxford Houses and Northwood apartments. Northwood offers housing for undergraduates and graduates.

Housing will to work with you to assign other student veterans or older students as roommates upon request.

The Off-Campus Housing Program helps U-M students locate off-campus housing, find roommates, and handle relationships with landlords. The site also includes information about Beyond the Diag, a student-initiated program that helps increase the sense of community among students living off campus in Ann Arbor, plus valuable information on Ann Arbor neighborhoods and more.

Check out the MLive website for local news, events, and housing information.


Meal plans are available for both residence hall and off-campus residents.


Parking & Transportation

Getting around campus is easy...but parking is not. Because parking options are so limited, U-M offers many options for students without cars.

Students can ride U-M’s inter- and intra-campus blue buses for free; students may also ride free on AAATA buses through the MRide program, and use daily park and ride lots.

The Logistics, Transportation & Parking website has more information on alternative transportation, including bus schedules, bicycles, Zipcars, and carpooling, among others.
