Winter 2018 Application Instructions

Please read all of the following instructions before you begin the application process. Rooms are limited and become available for newly admitted winter term students based on current resident cancellations.  

Room Environment

Residents and guests in any part of a University Housing facility are expected to comply with federal and local regulations regarding the use of alcohol and other drugs.

All University Housing rooms and apartments are smoke-free. Each year, a percentage of our living spaces are designated as substance-free. The substance-free room option offers an additional measure of support for students who choose not to drink, smoke, or use illegal drugs.

Read more about substance-free housing to determine if this option is right for you.

Room Types, Rates & Meal Plans

At the University of Michigan, room and board rates are determined by the basic room type, regardless of features and amenities such as air conditioning, room size, whether or not a building is new or renovated, location or proximity to dining.

On your housing application, you will be asked to choose and rank at least two groups. You can be assigned to any of the room types within your group preferences. We will only assign you to a  Group A or Group B rate if it is your first or second choice.

Campus Neighborhoods

U-M residence halls are located in one of three neighborhoods: Central Campus, the Hill and North Campus.

Gender-Specific Housing

Three choices are available:

All Female Hall 
The University of Michigan does not offer any all male halls.
Single-Gender Corridor
 The residence hall is mixed-gender, but residents of the corridor are the same gender.
Mixed Gender Corridor
 Roommates are the same gender, but men and women may live next door to one another.   Bathrooms are designated as male or female bathroom.

Michigan Learning Communities

Michigan Learning Communities provide a smaller and more intimate environment for the exploration of a specific field of study. These communities are generallly not available for winter term admitted students. However, if you are interested, please visit the various Michigan Learning Community web sites and contact the programs directly to learn about academic requirements, and core expectations. 

Roommate Requests

If you would like to request a specific roommate, please consider that roommate requests take precedence over all other preferences (except health related accommodations) and should, therefore, be your highest priority.

To request a roommate, ALL roommates must:

  • Enter the 8-digit U-M ID number of the other roommate on the application before it is submitted.
  • Be of the same gender.

Students with Disabilities and Chronic Health Conditions

We will work with students with a legally qualifying disability to meet their individual needs and will engage in an interactive process to determine reasonable accommodations. 

If you indicate on your housing application an accommodation need based on a legally qualifying disability, you will need to provide medical documentation in support of your request.  If the documentation is not already on file with the Housing Information Office, you need to complete and submit the Documentation for Accommodation Needs form within 5 business days of completing your housing application.

Submitting the Documentation for Accommodation Needs form is not a guarantee you will receive the accommodations recommended on the form.

The information you provide will have no bearing on your general eligibility for housing.  Students with disabilities are assigned roommates in the same manner as all other residence hall applicants, unless they specifically request a single room and one is available at the time their application is processed.  Accommodation requests take precedence over all other requests, including roommates.

Accommodations for first-year residents with conditions that do not fall under the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) serve as a bridge to assist students with their transition from home to college.

Services for Students with Disabilities does not share information with University Housing.

Gender-Inclusive Housing

University Housing works to provide a safe, comfortable and supportive living experience for all students. We offer gender-inclusive housing that is supportive of students who identify as transgender or gender non-conforming. Housing assignments are made on a case-by-case basis. If you are interested in a gender-inclusive room or apartment space, please contact us as soon as possible.

University Housing is a unit of Student Life, and an equal opportunity educator and employer.
