Each four-person unit has many of the same benefits of a residence hall while also offering independent living features. Plus, it was designed for resource and energy efficiency, and is one of the first LEED Gold Certified student residences in Michigan.

You're welcome to bring a vehicle to campus, but chances are you won't need it. If you can't get what you need on campus, we have a number of transportation options to get you around town—not to mention the rides you'll get from friends! If you do decide to bring a vehicle, you'll need to register it with Transportation Services and pay the fee to obtain your parking permit. Permits are also available for motorcycles, scooters, and snowmobiles. Please note that winter storage is not available on campus.
