Named after Michigan alum Louis Elbel – the composer of the “The Victors” – the Elbel Neighborhood is located just north of the Intramural Sports Building. Comprised almost entirely of student residents, the neighborhood is just a short walk from the Big House and the rest of the Athletic Campus. The Commuter South buses travel regularly down Hoover Street and provide convenient transportation for students going to/from their homes and classes. At the corner of Division Street and Hill Street, Elbel Field sits in the middle of the neighborhood. This outdoor complex includes a 100-yard turf football field, two sand volleyball courts, a picnic area, two softball fields, and a field area where students can play soccer, cricket, rugby, or ultimate frisbee; it is also the practice site for the Michigan Marching Band.
