Roommate Option

Single graduate students may choose to rent individually or share an apartment. You may select a roommate of your choice or we can assign a roommate to you.

If you select a roommate, you and your roommate must submit your applications at the same time. On the application, both roommates' choices regarding apartment type must match. Contract start dates do not have to match but must be within a 30-day period.  If you do not submit an application with a roommate, one will be assigned to you.

Need a Roommate?

University Housing offers an Online Roommate Board for single graduate students who do not already have a contract and who would like to share an apartment in Northwood Community Apartments. This optional feature is provided to help you connect with other U-M graduate students who are also looking for roommates. Place your advertisement now.
