What are the study and music rooms like?
There are many study rooms on the 1st floor as well as the 8th floor for a fantastic view! The lower level will be a mix. Some will have tables and chairs, and others will be a bit more "loungy". Therefore, a mix of student groups can be accommodated. The 8th floor study rooms will have traditional table and chairs, with wall monitor displays. There are also soundproof single occupancy music practice rooms that have tech stations for your instrument, and a soundproof room for larger instruments or a small group if you and some of your suitemates would like to have a "jam" session together.

What are the transportation and parking options?
The Munger Graduate Residences are within convenient walking and biking distance to many campus destinations, including most graduate and professional schools, as well as to shopping, entertainment and cultural attractions. Complimentary, secure inside bike parking is available. U-M and AATA bus stops are convenient to the Residences for transportation to the Medical and North Campuses, and elsewhere within the city. Vehicle parking passes are available at certain U-M facilities and nearby municipal lots.
What is the pet policy?
In University residences, pets are not permitted with the exception of fish in small tanks.
What is the contract length?
Contracts are 12-months in length, with a start date of either June 1 or August 1. If you foresee that a 12-month commitment to living in Munger will not fit with your academic schedule, then applying to live in the Munger Graduate Residences may not be your best option. In order for Munger to truly live into its vision of a thriving transdisciplinary community we believe students should live here for an entire calendar year, and thus students are required to sign 12-month contracts.
What is the process and timing to apply?
Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis. Applications will continue to be accepted until all spaces have been offered.
