Affordable Housing Opportunity for Students: HomeShare Program

Every student knows how difficult it can be to find comfortable, AFFORDABLE housing, especially in the Ann Arbor area. The UMHS Housing Bureau for Seniors HomeShare Program is reaching out to help you find the housing you desire. 

In the HomeShare Program, older home owners open their homes to “seekers” for a reduced rent in exchange for basic household services such as taking out the trash, bringing in the mail, or assistance with shoveling snow. These services allow the home owner to remain independent and in their home for as long as possible. 

Renter's Insurance

The University does not provide protection against lost, damaged or stolen personal property or for injury to anyone (tenant, guest or visitor) in off-campus housing as a result of their own actions or the actions of others.
