University Of Michigan Student Housing
The residence hall system at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, which is called the University Housing (which is a unit of The Division of Student Affairs at the University of Michigan), is the sixth-largest campus housing system in the United States and the third-largest family housing operation, accommodating up to 12,562 people. The dormitories, or residence halls, are organized into three distinct groups or "neighborhoods": Central Campus, Hill Neighborhood (between Central Campus and the University of Michigan Medical Center) and North Campus. The students that live in the University Residence Halls are represented by the University of Michigan Residence Halls Association.
The largest dormitory, Bursley Hall on North Campus, has a capacity of 1,277 students, while the smallest accommodates 31 residents. Although there is no mandatory requirement to do so, approximately 95% of the incoming class chooses to live within the University Housing system. A majority of upper-class and graduate students live in off-campus apartments, houses, and cooperatives, with the largest concentrations in the Central and South Campus areas. Graduate students, students with families, faculty and staff can choose non-residential University accommodations in the Northwood community on North Campus. Comprising 21 buildings in five interconnected areas, Northwood includes nearly 1100 apartments, from studio units to three-bedroom townhouses.

Famous quotes containing the words university of, housing, student and/or university:
“The great problem of American life [is] the riddle of authority: the difficulty of finding a way, within a liberal and individualistic social order, of living in harmonious and consecrated submission to something larger than oneself.... A yearning for self-transcendence and submission to authority [is] as deeply rooted as the lure of individual liberation.”
—Wilfred M. McClay, educator, author. The Masterless: Self and Society in Modern America, p. 4, University of North Carolina Press (1994)
“We have been weakened in our resistance to the professional anti-Communists because we know in our hearts that our so-called democracy has excluded millions of citizens from a normal life and the normal American privileges of health, housing and education.”
—Agnes E. Meyer (18871970)
“Adolescents have the right to be themselves. The fact that you were the belle of the ball, the captain of the lacrosse team, the president of your senior class, Phi Beta Kappa, or a political activist doesnt mean that your teenager will be or should be the same....Likewise, the fact that you were a wallflower, uncoordinated, and a C student shouldnt mean that you push your child to be everything you were not.”
—Laurence Steinberg (20th century)
“In the United States, it is now possible for a person eighteen years of age, female as well as male, to graduate from high school, college, or university without ever having cared for, or even held, a baby; without ever having comforted or assisted another human being who really needed help. . . . No society can long sustain itself unless its members have learned the sensitivities, motivations, and skills involved in assisting and caring for other human beings.”
—Urie Bronfenbrenner (b. 1917)
