Even if it's not officially marked, Move-In is one of the biggest days on the calendar, for your family, your students, and the staff of Student Life alike. If you've done it before, you've had a glimpse of just how much happens over a few days, as the streets of Ann Arbor fill with students, parents, and beanbag chairs, criss-crossing town. If this year will be your first, you're probably deep into planning and wondering if there are any tricks.
Campus Information is more than just a hub of information about the university and Ann Arbor. Students staff the Campus Information desks and help fellow students, staff, parents, faculty and townspeople navigate campus and provide answers to a wide array of questions.

This summer, renovations have been wrapping up at South Quad, the new Munger graduate residence is rising higher, and West Quad is closed for a complete renovation. When you visit campus, you will undoubtedly notice some construction fencing! In the heart of all this exciting activity, the Michigan Union’s operations and hours of service remain in full swing.
If you'd like to explore the Family Matters archives, you can read advice from other families and parents of Michigan students from our previous editions. There's nothing like hearing from another Michigan parent about what it's like when a child first leaves home, money management for students, campus safety, and other important topics.
