New Residence Halls

The next generation of university living

New freshmen-focused residence halls will be opening for fall 2015 to serve the Center Residential Neighborhood. The innovative living concept offers environmentally conscious features, socialization through the purposeful use of public areas and abundant green space, making a positive impact on student life. The new housing complex will introduce future students to the next generation of university living. 

The design, which is the first of its type in Michigan, is intended to build multiple levels of community engagement and facilitate academic success. Each living area is arranged into houses of 30-35 students on each floor with a kitchen and study area, plus centrally private bathrooms maintained by staff. Central community spaces on four levels feature laundry and study areas, an open-air terrace, plus entertainment and game rooms.

Features include:

  • Approximately 750 beds
  • Community living rooms
  • Entertainment areas
  • Open-air terrace
  • Furnished bedrooms
  • Built-in closets
  • Air conditioning
  • Third floor laundry
  • Kitchen area in each house
