Navigating the Ann Arbor Housing Market

This is Part 1 of a series for graduate students who will begin their studies at U-M this fall. See Part 2: How I Moved to Ann Arbor and Part 3: Furnishing Your Apartment or Room on a Grad Student Budget

The Ann Arbor rental housing market is pretty typical of a college town: there is high demand, not a lot of permanence, and the quality of housing varies wildly. On the positive side, unlike in many big cities, it is very possible to find reasonable housing within walking distance from campus.

Some examples of Rackham students abroad and in Ann Arbor during the summer.

Introducing #MyRackhamSummer

“Summer” might have a very different meaning for each grad student.

Are you working in the lab? Researching/traveling abroad? Enjoying the few months of beautiful Ann Arbor weather? Hanging out with your dog? All of the above?

Let us know what you are up to this summer by using the hashtag #MyRackhamSummer on:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook (make your post public)
  • Instagram (tag and follow @umichgradschool)

P.S. Are you interested in taking over our Instagram for a day this summer? (Think: A day in the life of a grad student: Summer edition) If so, please contact rack.comm@umich.edu.
