Move-In: Northwood Single Graduate and Family Housing

Move-In Dates

Congratulations! You'll soon be living at Michigan!

Contract start dates are either on the 1st or the 16th of the month! You can move in either on or after your contract date.

If the contract start date falls on a holiday when the Community Center is closed, you will be able to pick up your keys the day before without additional charge.

We regret that we cannot accommodate requests for early move-in or early key pick-up.

If you're moving into Northwood IV or V, please visit the Community Center at 1000 McIntyre Dr., to check in and pick up your key. (A photo ID will be required.) If you're moving into Northwood I or II, you can check in at the 2150 Cram Place Community Center.
