Meal Plans and More for Off-Campus Living

If your student has decided to live off-campus, they may still want to eat in the campus dining halls, regularly or occasionally. Several meal plans are available that provide delicious food and diverse choices. All without your student having to shop, cook and clean up!

Make It the Best Experience

There is so much more to gain with a well-rounded education at the University of Michigan than what is learned in the classroom. Engaging with the campus community through participation in events, volunteering, sports, and student organizations will not only add impressive items on a resume, but also help students gain a greater perspective on the world, and experiences for a rewarding life.

Our Time with Your Student

There's so much to hear from your student about the academic year—what they learned, what they loved, what they've become. Right now, students are facing the final stretch and are on the cusp of a transition, filled with expectation and, for some, a heightened sense of stress.

Is Your Student Considering Graduate School?

If your student has been thinking about graduate or professional school, they are not alone.  In any given year approximately 1,700 U-M Ann Arbor students and alumni will apply to medical/dental/pharmacy and other health profession schools and another 400 more will apply to law school.
