Living in Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor is a wonderfully livable community, with thriving food, arts, and music scenes and great local parks.

Many of our students live within walking or biking distance to campus and take advantage of the city’s location for both outdoor activities—cycling on the Huron River Greenway, kayaking at Argo Park, cross-country skiing at Rolling Hills Park—and excursions to Detroit and the surrounding metro area. Local favorites include the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market, Argus Farm Stop, Ashley’s, the Ark, Aut Bar, Bill’s Beer Garden, Mash, Mani’s, White Lotus Farms, Zingerman’s Deli, and more.
