Beyond the Diag - Off Campus Housing

The stores at the corner of South University and East University street.

East of Church and south of Geddes rests the South University Neighborhood, primarily composed of Michigan undergrads. A mere 5-10 minute walk from the Central Campus Transit Center – the University’s primary bus stop – residents here are equally close to the Michigan campus and the vibrant Ann Arbor nightlife. To the east of the neighborhood lies the historical Forest Hill Cemetery. Founded by a group of Ann Arbor businessmen and professors in 1857, Forest Hill is one of the city’s most treasured landmarks. Many leading citizens of Ann Arbor and members of the Michigan community are laid to rest in Forest Hill; among its occupants are Michigan’s first State Supreme Court Justice William Asa Fletcher and famous U-M football coaches Fielding H. Yost and Bo Schembechler.
