Housing and COVID-19: the latest public health guidelines and testing information.


Welcome to Michigan Housing! And welcome home. The key to a successful residential experience is knowing all about the expectations: what’s expected of Michigan Housing, and what’s expected of you as a community member. These are our Michigan Housing policies, and you can find them in three documents:

Your Housing Contract is a legally binding agreement between you and the University, providing you with a space in Michigan Housing. Review your contract for important information such as the dates of your occupancy, your meal plan, and the room and board rate.

The Housing Terms and Conditions, a legally binding adjunct to the contract, outlines expectations and procedures, including check-in and check-out, keys, terminating, renewing, or reassigning your contract, safety and security, and more. Be sure you review this document carefully.

The Community Living at Michigan Standards (the “CLAM” for short) is also a legally binding adjunct to your contract that lays out additional expectations, including our Community Living Standards and the Housing Conduct and Conflict Resolution process.

When you sign your contract, you are agreeing to adhere to the terms of all three documents, so take the time to view each one.
