Take time before you sign: November updates

Next fall, the University of Michigan will be starting the semester on August 31st 2020, which is a shift from the typical post-labor day start date. Aside from potentially switching up your holiday travel plans, this change may also impact your lease for the next school year. If you are signing a lease for next fall, make sure that you will be able to move in before classes begin. Ask your landlord if you can move in by August 31st 2020, to make sure that you will have housing when classes commence.
