Northwood Apartment Transfer Request


Transfers are given priority over new applicants except during the months of June, July and August. Transfers are not offered in those months. Offers for transfers are not always extended, but when they are, they are based on the reason for the request, the date the request was submitted and the availability of apartments.

University accounts must be current and in good standing.

Requests based on an increase or decrease in family size or financial need have priority over transfers based on convenience. If you are requesting a transfer due to pregnancy or an increase in family size, you must submit marriage/domestic partner documentation, medical proof of pregnancy or birth certificate(s) along with this application.

Non-Students are eligible to transfer to Northwood V ONLY.

The transfer request will remain active through the duration of eligibility or until a transfer is completed or cancelled by the applicant or by the Housing Information Office.

If an apartment is offered, you will have 48 hours to accept or decline the transfer. Be extremely specific about all of the requests you submit (e.g. apartment type, area, dates and any other special needs.)

If an apartment is offered to you and it is declined, your transfer request will be cancelled and you will need to resubmit a new request. 

Michigan Housing reserves the right to reject a transfer application for any reason, including but not limited to, an outstanding balance on your account, contract violations, housekeeping concerns, or damages to current apartment.
