Housing & Dining


What are the benefits to living on the University of Michigan campus? Community, for one. At an institution of more than 40,000 students, it’s nice to have a place to call home, somewhere you can learn the lessons of living together with others, and build real friendships, some of which will last your entire life.

Nearly 97% of first-year students live on campus in one of U-M’s residential communities. Social and academic support is available through live-in staff or resident assistants who will be there to help you through any number of personal, intellectual, social, and life issues, and decisions.

U-M also offers a variety of residential living/learning programs that allow students with similar interests or goals to live and study together in community and to meet students from other countries, cultures, and backgrounds. Applications for Michigan Learning Communities are available mid-January.

Residence Halls
Our residence halls and apartments are far more than places for resting or studying. They function as smaller, more accessible communities within U-M.
Dining Options & Menus
Several meal plans make it easy for you to dine in any one of many campus eateries, including residential dining halls and cafés. Many locations feature mobile ordering.

From international cuisine to vegetarian entrées to gourmet pizzas, dining at Michigan is all about options. With many dining halls, residential cafés and meal plans to choose from, U-M students have a vast array of food options.
