RETURNING RESIDENT HOUSING PROCESS: GENERAL OVERVIEW

The returning resident process begins in January. When registration opens, you’ll find a registration link on this page to the Housing Student Business Portal. Fill out and submit the registration form. That is how you let us know that you’d like to live on campus and that you’d like a selection time to choose a room. 

After registration closes, you will receive an email with your randomly generated selection time. (Your selection time is the time when you can log in and choose from the available rooms.) 

On the day of your selection time, log in and select from the available rooms. In order to choose from the widest selection, log in as close as possible to your appointed selection time.

There is no guarantee of room availability.

ROOMMATES

The Roommate Finder is open during registration. If you find a roommate via Roommate Finder, or you already have a roommate in mind, both you and your proposed roommate need to request each other on the registration form—by name and UMID number. You will be issued the same selection time. At your selection time, go online to look at options, agree upon the open room you both want, and both of you select it. Don’t forget: each student must select a space in the room.

SUBMITTING YOUR CONTRACT

Whether you select a room or we assign your room, your contract will be due within 24 hours of selection/notification. Each student needs to submit their individual contract on time, even if they are sharing a room or suite.

GENERAL ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS

We have a limited number of singles, doubles, triples and suites available for returning students. You’ll find specific information for each option below.  Some information will not be available until early January.

If you live in a Theme Community or Michigan Learning Community, would like to live in Martha Cook or Henderson House, or have a medical or chronic health accommodation need, please see the “Specific Housing Options” section below for additional information.

Single or Double Rooms

More information about availability will be provided in January.  We anticipate the majority of single and double rooms will be available in Stockwell and North Quad. There will be some rooms available in Betsy Barbour, Helen Newberry, Martha Cook and Bursley Hall.

Triple Rooms

A limited number of triples are available and are assigned by housing staff. When filling out your registration form, you and your proposed roommates should indicate that you’d like to live in a triple. You should request each other as roommates on the form.

Suites

If you would like to apply for a suite, be sure to register by the date indicated in General Overview above. Then work with your intended roommates to complete the suite request form below. We can only consider forms that are filled out completely  (including signatures) and turned in to the Housing Office by noon on January 17

SPECIFIC HOUSING OPTIONS

Are you interested in being part of an outstanding community of undergraduate and graduate women in residence at the Martha Cook Building? You are invited to attend an information session on Tuesday, January 11, 7:00-8:00 p.m. Please RSVP/Register here. If you are not able to attend and would like to learn more about Martha Cook or have questions please email marthacookbuilding@umich.edu.

Returning Martha Cook residents: talk with the Martha Cook staff about the registration process.

Medical or Health Conditions

We wish for every student to secure housing that allows them to be successful at the University of Michigan.

Some students may have received medical, health, or disability-related accommodations within the residence halls as part of their transition to campus. Please note this does not guarantee the availability of on-campus housing for additional years at the University of Michigan. Options in the second-year and beyond are limited for all students.

Returning residents may self-select a room of their choosing based on availability. 

If you have an eligible disability that you have not previously reported that you believe requires a housing accommodation, please report this to hsg-health-disability@umich.edu.

All residents, including those requesting placement based on medical need, must register between January 13 – January 19.  More information about the health and disability accommodation process can be found here: Additional Living Options

Michigan Learning Communities (MLCs)

If you are in an MLC, speak to your program staff about available space in the community and follow the returning resident process indicated by your community. Students interested in the Global Scholars Program should review the information available here.

Residential College (RC)

If you are returning to the RC, second-year students are required to live on campus. You will receive an email with a selection time prior to January 27. This time slot is the only opportunity you will have to select your own room. If you are a returning second-year RC student and you do not select a room, you will be assigned a room.

Second-Year Experience (SYE)

More information will be coming in January. Learn more about Theme programming, expectations and the Second-Year Experience by visiting the Second Year Experience page.
