University of Michigan’s Most Popular Rentals: September 2019

Ann Arbor is one of the biggest college towns in the country and thousands of students searching for houses and apartments near the University of Michigan use every year to find housing. Like many other campuses across the nation, many students at Michigan start searching for housing during the Fall Semester upon returning to campus for the new school year. Students begin their search in late September and then really get going in October for leases that start the following August.

This September was no different. Students started searching for houses near the Michigan campus in the second half of September. The majority of students reach out houses for rent in Ann Arbor in these early days of the leasing season, while apartments typically start going off the market after October. Competition is fierce and there are fewer houses available than apartments close to campus!
