Cost

When you factor in the cost of transportation and gas, not to mention the headache of fighting traffic and construction in Metro Detroit, many students find living on campus can be an affordable option.

Below are housing rates for the fall and winter semesters as well as the discounted rates for summer. Remember, rates include free amenities such as cable television, laundry, parking and computer/Internet service.

Housing costs are billed through Student Financial Services, who also handles important payment and bill due dates.
