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 information links are like nerves that pervade and help to animate the human organism. The sensors and monitors are analogous to the human senses that put us in touch with the world. Data bases correspond to memory; the information processors perform the function of human reasoning and comprehension. Once the postmodern infrastructure is reasonably integrated, it will greatly exceed human intelligence in reach, acuity, capacity, and precision.
    Albert Borgman, U.S. educator, author. Crossing the Postmodern Divide, ch. 4, University of Chicago Press (1992)

    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 (1887–1970)

    One must be a student before one can be a teacher.
    Chinese proverb.

    I had a classmate who fitted for college by the lamps of a lighthouse, which was more light, we think, than the University afforded.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
