Housing & Residence Life


There’s a difference between “dorms” and “residence halls.”

One simply sleeps in a dorm—but in a residence hall, you’ll be enveloped in positive experiences that’ll help you learn, live and grow. UM provides nine different residence halls for students to interact and interweave, and each residence hall offers a unique range of amenities, from private baths to kitchen amenities to apartment-style living. And each residence hall is conveniently located a short distance from classrooms, recreational facilities, food services, administrative offices and the library. In other words, you’ll be doing a lot more than just sleeping.
