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.

Civic Engagement

As a student at the University of Michigan there are a number of opportunities to engage in the community and to exercise your civic duty. Community engagement is an important foundation of building a vibrant and connected society. Engaged students are informed and make communities stronger, healthier, more connected and better able to meet the needs of the people who live in them. Turn out to vote, volunteer in the community, participate in dialogues around social and political issues – it’s your opportunity to share your voice and shape your future.
