The ELI does not make housing arrangements for our summer programs students. Therefore, you must arrange for your own summer housing accommodation prior to your arrival on campus.
Finding housing in Ann Arbor can be time-consuming, so you should immediately start looking for a place to live as soon as you have been accepted to any U-M program. Below is some information to help you get started.
Located on North Campus are the Northwood Community Apartments (NCA), university-owned apartments and townhouses for U-M students with spouses/partners and children. Spring/summer term housing units may be available from May to August and some units may be subcontracted. The best way to get information about on-campus housing is by visiting the following U-M Housing website.
Off-campus housing refers to any housing not owned and operated by the University. It includes small-group housing, such as apartments, houses, rooms, and co-ops. Summer subleases often are available at reduced rates. Students who want to live off-campus should refer to the Shared Housing and Sublets section of the U-M Off-Campus Housing website.
An alternative to the residence halls is student cooperative housing (“co-ops”), managed by the Inter-Cooperative Council (ICC). There are group houses and apartments scattered throughout North and Central campuses. North Campus attracts a large graduate student population and a sizable international student population as well. Central Campus co-ops cater to a large, diverse crowd that is mostly undergrads. For more information on Ann Arbor co-ops, visit the ICC website.
International House of Ann Arbor
Located near U-M's Central Campus is the International House of Ann Arbor (IHAA), a unique living experience for international students and scholars. The mission of the IHAA is to be an intercultural living/learning community that builds connections across the lines of ethnicity and culture and fosters global citizenship. IHAA often has summer housing available. For information, please visit the IHAA website.
