Martha Cook Building

906 S. University
Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1195

Martha Cook, an all-women hall is home to 140 students. First-year through graduate students have found friends and home on campus at the Martha Cook Building for over 100 years. Rich in campus history and Collegiate Gothic architecture, the small community gathers often for events full of tradition. Residents enjoy Friday afternoon teas, dinners together on Sundays, Harry Potter Week, wellness events, and more. The serene Gold Room not only hosts teas and other events but provides a convenient and cozy environment to study and relax in. The Martha Cook meal plan provides meals in the graceful dining hall for Martha Cook residents only. The Building’s location in the heart of central campus is within minutes of libraries, classrooms, student unions, restaurants and shops, and gives its residents easy access to the resources and life of the University of Michigan.

At Martha Cook, you’ll have a community of Residential Staff who are trained and ready to help you succeed in your new home. Your Resident Advisor will be there to help build community, lead activities and answer your questions. Learn more about Residential Staff and services.

Each residence hall has a student governing system. The Martha Cook Building’s student House Board provides guidance and leadership to their fellow residents and activities of the community.


A valued hallmark of the Martha Cook is building community by eating together in Martha Cook’s dining hall, and dining in Martha Cook is reserved for residents of the building. Included in the Martha Cook meal plan are Friday Teas, and other special events
