Located in the center of the off-campus area is the Tappan Neighborhood. Named after Henry Philip Tappan – the first President of the University of Michigan – the neighborhood is home to many Greek houses and student residences. The area also includes two of the University’s most prominent landmarks: The Law Quad and the Ross School of Business. The East Quad Residence Hall, which houses the Residential College, hosts a series of original student performances throughout the year – most of which are free to students. Residents of the Tappan neighborhood are only a five-to-ten minute walk from the Diag, the libraries, and the many restaurants and shops on South University.
