  • Utilize the Roommate Finder and Message Boards accessible only to UM students, faculty, and staff. The Roommate Finder will allow you an opportunity to find a roommate or subtenants within the university community.
  • To login, simply use your uniqname and Kerberos password.

Rental property owners are responsible for reporting information fairly and accurately, and the University of Michigan and Off Campus partners cannot guarantee the completeness or accuracy of such information. Inclusion of any property or rental unit on this website does not constitute, and shall not be construed or reported as (1) an endorsement or approval by the University of Michigan or Off Campus Partners of the landlord, its properties, or its business practices, or (2) a warranty or representation by the University of Michigan or Off Campus Partners as to the equality, safety or other features of such property and/or its owners or management agent(s).

Winter Housing Fairs

Don’t miss out on Beyond The Diag’s in-person Winter Housing Fairs! Last semester, Beyond the Diag hosted two in-person Housing Fairs, which offered students an opportunity to connect with off-campus housing providers, to learn more about off-campus housing options and find out about support for students who live off-campus. Alongside this, we also offered a Virtual Housing Fair, for people who may not currently be on campus.

Early Leasing and Right to Renew City Ordinances

On October 3, 2022 the Ann Arbor City Council adopted a Right to Renew Ordinance. The Right to Renew Ordinance requires landlords in Ann Arbor to make a good faith offer to renew a lease to a tenant 180 days prior to the end of their current lease, unless the landlord can establish good cause not to renew to the current tenant.  Relocation assistance is mandated if a landlord fails to offer a renewal or show good cause not to renew.
