Freshman Residency Requirement

Are you eligible to live off-campus?

UM Residence Hall

Apartment hunting is fun!

But before you start poring through roommate listings on the Housing Finder or shopping for furniture, find out if you are required to live on-campus.

Most freshmen are required to live on-campus, but there are exceptions for students living with relatives, participating in Greek Life, or needing an accommodation for medical reasons.

You can find out more about the residency requirement policy and how to request an exception on Residence Life's website.
