West Quadrangle & Cambridge House

541 Thompson St
Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1360

West Quad is a mixed-gender residence hall that is home to around 1,100 upperclassman and first-year students. It’s conveniently connected to the Michigan Union and is across the street from the South Quad Dining Center. It’s in walking distance of many U-M academic buildings and the lively shopping area on State Street.

At West Quad 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 questions. Learn everything there is to know about Residential Staff and services.

Each residence hall has a student governing system including a Hall Council, a Multicultural Council, and representatives on the Residence Hall Association. Talk to your RA if you are interested in participating.

Your Community

Community Center

Every residence hall has a Community Center that is the heart of the community. There, you’ll get a chance to meet other students, talk to resident advisors, and find out about events and activities planned for your community. Plus, the Community Center can help with logistics like room lock-outs, lost keycards, lost & found and package pick up.
