Off Campus Housing - new resources

We recognize that the off-campus housing search process can come with a lot of questions, and finding the right information can be time-consuming. Off Campus Partners, which partners with the university in managing our housing search website, has produced a series of short videos that help to answer a lot of these questions, to take the stress out of the search process. Each of the seven videos is approximately one minute in length, and looks at a different element of the search journey.

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.
