Beyond the Diag - Off Campus Housing

Be a Good Neighbor

Remember that your off campus neighbors live just feet away. Maintain a positive relationship with the students or Ann Arbor residents next door, and keep these helpful tips in mind.

Your Security Deposit

A security deposit includes any rent you pay in advance - other than the first month - and legally cannot exceed the cost of 1.5 month's rent. At the end of your lease, your landlord may deduct money from your deposit for unpaid rent, unpaid utility bills, or damages to the rental unit caused by you or your guests.
