Non-University Housing


Summer Sublets—If you plan to be in Ann Arbor for an extended stay (fourweeks or more) you may prefer to look for a summer sublet. These areparticularly recommended if you plan to bring children or pets with you. The Off-Campus Housing Office provides a list ofrooms, apartments and houses that may be available during June and July. TheUniversity also has information about various short-term housing options.


Inter-Cooperative Council(ICC) at the University of Michigan—ICCStudent Cooperative Housing, in which 8 to 70 people live together sharingexpenses and chores, provides a good alternative to apartment or single-roomrental for Summer Institute participants. Cooperative housing, or a co-op, isoperated by the people who live in them, requiring three to five hours of workper week from each member. Some houses have meal plans while in others membersbuy food and cook individually. All houses have fully-equipped kitchens.Members' jobs range from cooking dinner, to dishwashing and housekeeping, tokeeping the house books, or performing basic maintenance.

Co-ops offer a comfortable, friendlyatmosphere. Most houses are within a 10- to 15-minute walk from the Institutefor Social Research. The individual houses vary quite a bit in quality andatmosphere; thus, it is best to inspect the accommodations before making acommitment. At the very least, make it clear what your needs and expectationsare. During the summer, many of the co-ops are populated by people who are nottaking classes. Their schedules and lifestyles, therefore, may differ greatlyfrom yours. Please be explicit that you are with the ISR Summer Institute andstate the dates you will be in Ann Arbor. House approval is not required forcontracts for a double room. Contracts for any contract dates other than thoselisted on the ICC website require house approval.
