The 2018-2019 academic year introduces many new changes to the University of Michigan campus. As you begin preparations for your move to Ann Arbor, make sure you have your bases covered and take notice of the coming updates to UMich campus life. It’s time to get excited to go Blue!
Welcome to Michigan Events:
Starting on Thursday, August 30, Welcome to Michigan events hosted by the Office of New Student programs kick off. Relax that evening with outdoor movies on the main Central Campus Diag and the recently renovated Gerstacker Grove on North Campus, or continue to check the ONSP website for information on events like the President's Ice Cream Social and plenty of others throughout the weekend. The next week will feature AskMe Information Stations hosted by our Campus Information representatives, so drop in to one of our four booths on Central and North Campus on September 4th or 5th to have your questions answered and grab a snack to get you through your first days of class!
U of M Housing Notices
If you are an incoming freshman or have plans to return to UM Housing/Residence Halls, make sure that you are aware of the latest information for move-in. Here you can find the Fall arrival checklist provided by the Housing Office as well as the recommendations for items to bring to campus when living in the residence halls. Additionally, if you are a returning student and have not yet decided on a place to live for the coming year, or if you are planning on going abroad for a semester and looking to stay in UM Housing, check out open housing applications for the coming year.
Everyone’s favorite campus activity, construction, has both begun and ended across University of Michigan. Over the summer, serious headway was made on the North Campus Recreational Building (to feature brand new indoor track, sauna, and meeting facilities), the Michigan Union, and the relocation of the Department of Dance building (to allocate additional parking on Central Campus). Furthermore, work has finally come to an end on the Biological Science Building adjacent to Palmer Field, which features state of the art research laboratories, classrooms & offices, as well as four brand new museums dedicated to life sciences and affiliated with the Life Science Institute (LSI). To read more about any of these projects, and to look into what developments may occur during your tenure at Michigan, take a look at the UM Architecture, Engineering and Construction website.
Last but certainly not least, it is our duty here at UM CIC to update you on changes to our service, and to ensure that you are equipped with the tools you need to tackle the 2018-2019 academic year. As mentioned, with the ongoing Renovation to the Michigan Union, our Central Campus office has been reprioritized to the Michigan League, located at 911 N University Ave. We maintain our dedicated service to all U of M students and visitors to the campus, and can assist any student organizations in conducting events in the common spaces of the League. Moreover, our facilities on North Campus in the Pierpont Commons building, located at 2102 Bonisteel Boulevard, have remained operational the entire summer. Should you ever find yourself on North Campus, we hope you will come in to pay us a visit. Most importantly we wish you an amazing year at the University of Michigan. Despite the changes shaking up campus these days, we will always be there to answer your questions!
