Student Life

Student Life is here for you; our most basic task is helping students get the most out of their experiences at the university. With Student Life you can find your own niche on campus; connect with students within or beyond your residence hall, organization, or academic program; get involved in student organizations, leadership opportunities, and campus jobs and internships; and choose the housing and dining and living options that work best for you.

From the Desk of VP Royster Harper

Student Life consists of many essential services supporting U-M students and helping them get the most out of their time here. We’re the place students go to Get Help, Get Involved, Get Housing & Food, Get Active and get the most out of their time on campus.
