Looking for a Contract Reassignment?
- If University Housing is unable to offer you a contract and you still wish to live in Northwood Community Apartments you may consider assuming another resident’s contract by means of a contract reassignment.
- You must be eligible for the apartment you want. If you already have a contract with University Housing, you cannot participate in a contract reassignment.
- If you are interested in a contract reassignment, you are responsible for contacting the resident whose contract you wish to assume.
- There is no guarantee that you will be able to successfully obtain a contract through this reassignment process.
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 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.
