The University of Michigan is one of the top schools in the nation and thousands of students relocate to Ann Arbor to go there, but many choose to stay on and enjoy the delights that Ann Arbor and the area has to offer.
Of course if you want to live in Ann Arbor and attend U of M then it is best to try and find a community which would allow you to walk to campus – so where to start?
Well first as a student you should consider where your classes are going to be – the U of M campus is divided into four parts - North, Central, Medical and South. Their names make it easy to distinguish which parts of central Ann Arbor they occupy, Medical is on the eastern side.
North Campus contains these classes: College of Engineering, Theatre and Dance, College of Architecture and Urban Planning or the School of Music.
Central Campus: College of Literature, Science and the Arts, the Ross School of Business, the Law School and the School of Dentistry. Central Campus also contains two prominent libraries, the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library and the Shapiro Undergraduate Library. This area also contains the museums containing collections in archaeology, anthropology, paleontology, zoology, dentistry, and art.
South Campus contains all of the Athletic Departments, the BIG House, Yost Arena, Chrysler Auditiorium. It is also home to the U of M golf course.
Being able to not have a car is not only a cheaper way to live, but also more environmentally friendly – it is not inconvenient in an area like Ann Arbor which benefits from a fantastic public transport network and great local amenities in the central and downtown areas.
