Beyond the Diag - Off Campus Housing

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.
