Parents and Families


Next year your student has the opportunity to enhance their college experience by living within one of the many Theme Communities offered via Michigan Housing. As part of the University’s Living-Learning programs, theme communities are an opportunity to explore and experience college life with other students who share your students’ interests. Some communities encompass a floor, some encompass an entire hall, but all of them will help your student connect with peers, mentors and campus resources.

There are nine diverse Theme Community focuses, offering residents new learning opportunities and collaborative activities. They allow students to pursue passions, explore new interests in a co-curricular setting, and ready themselves to apply their learning to a complex and diverse world. 

Applications for the Theme Community experience are open until on May 5. 

Your student can also participate in a Virtual Information Session. For more information, please visit the Theme Communities website
