Beyond the Diag is UM's off campus housing program within the Dean of Students Office. Beyond the Diag was developed to improve off-campus safety resources, communication, and education for UM students. The core work of Beyond the Diag includes:

Outreach and Education: Beyond the Diag aims to educate off-campus students about their rights and responsibilities as renters, share various resources, and provide opportunities for connection and belonging. Neighborhood Ambassadors, student employees who live in the near-to-campus neighborhoods, host social and educational events throughout the year, serve as liaisons to the campus community, and promote Beyond the Diag resources.

Off-Campus Student Assistance: The Dean of Students Case Management Team serves as unbiased third parties to help off-campus students address their concerns, navigate their challenges, and get connected to helpful resources. Learn more about how the Dean of Students Office can provide students with support. 

Off-Campus Housing Listing Service: The U-M Off-Campus Housing website can be used to search housing listings, roommate finder, message boards, and a list of online resources for living off-campus. U-M does not manage off-campus properties, rather, provides this resource for students to search local off-campus housing options.

Do you have a passion for working with students? Do you live off campus? Do you like directing students to resources that can help them? Then look no further! 

Beyond the Diag is looking for off-campus students who are interested in fostering community among students who live off campus and improving communication between students, the university, and the Ann Arbor community. In addition to this, we are looking for students who can raise awareness of issues and promote positive neighbor relations with all off-campus students.

If you are a student living off-campus, or are planning to do so in the future, please visit one of our drop-in office hours sessions. You will have the opportunity to meet with a member of our student staff team, ask questions about living off-campus, and learn more about the support, resources, and programming available to you. You do not need to schedule an appointment in advance - you can just stop by  the Dean of Students Office (Suite 3100, Michigan Union) on Wednesdays 1-3pm and Fridays 2-4pm during the fall semester.
