University Housing apartments are available for sophomore, junior, senior and graduate students and freshmen on an exception basis.   Students who are parents or legal guardians may have their dependents live with them. Appropriate documentation may be required before an assignment is made.

University Faculty and Staff are eligible to lease as space permits.

Eastern Michigan University is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged personal property of apartment tenants during occupancy of a University apartment.  Tenants wishing to protect themselves from the possibility of property loss should be covered with the appropriate renter's insurance. 

University Housing apartment facilities are for the exclusive use of tenants and guests in accordance with the current terms and conditions, and other University policies.  The University reserves the right to terminate a lease as set forth in its policies and in accordance with the laws of the State of Michigan.

 

UNIVERSITY PRACTICE
