Traver Crossing Apartment

I was looking for a quiet apartment that would be good for me and my dogs - and I have been so happy at Traver Crossing. It couldn't be a better fit for us.

The building and appliances, etc., are older. But management has been very responsive to any issues I've had. If you're looking for a more 'luxury' apartment, Traver Crossing probably isn't for you. There is, unfortunately, also no in-unit laundry and machine prices aren't cheap ($1.75 per wash/dry - BUT you can pay by card and don't need to worry about quarters).

If you're looking for a friendly, affordable, quiet apartment with a TON of storage space, I would definitely recommend Traver Crossing. The fenced in dog park is also a huge plus for us.

I was drawn to Traver Crossing over other dog-friendly apartments in Ann Arbor because of the location. If you enjoy natural spaces/trails/being close to the river, you can't get much better in Ann Arbor for a dog-friendly spot. We love being close to the Leslie Science & Nature Center and only a mile from the Argo Nature Trail, one of Ann Arbor's most popular trails. As a runner, it was important to me that there are so many beautiful routes (of a huge range of distances) that are readily accessible from Traver Crossing.

I was a bit worried about the proximity to the train track that parallels Plymouth Rd, but have not been disturbed by the trains at all.

No hassles, good value

Spacious apartments with outdoor space (e.g., patio). Very quiet community (never hear anything), pet-friendly. Easy parking included in rent, close to bus lines, grocery store, and medical campus (30 min walk, 7 min bus ride, easy drive). Good management company.

Affordable with good management

We've been very happy living here this past year. Having lived at some of the other apartments in the area, I feel that Traver Crossing is the best combination of value and good management. The apartments are well maintained, and the service techs are pretty prompt when fixing things that break. Overall, very pleased.

Beautiful, quiet, serene complex

I chose this complex because I am a dog-owner and wanted a place that was pet friendly. The complex is surrounded by trees and away from the road so it is calm and quiet here. There is a dog park in the complex for your pets (if you have one) and plenty of green areas to comfortably walk your pet. Also, nature lovers would appreciate that the Leslie Science and Nature Center, which includes beautiful wooded trails, is essentially in our backyard.

Pricing of the complex is similar to places near the hospital, however, I feel like I get much more "bang for my buck" with the large floor plans and extra large closets!

Traver Crossing is right off Plymouth and Barton Drive and right on the #2 busline to the hospital or downtown. It's also a nice walk to the medical campus on a nice day.

North Campus Reviews

102 reviews
I have absolutely loved living a 10-15 minute walk from the hospital! The area is very safe with great outdoor parks/ trails nearby!
It’s a calm neighbourhood with great parks to roam around during summer
I personally really like North Campus, although it is farther away from downtown and the law school. There are several restaurants right near my apartment complex and the commute to school is very easy. I also find the lack of nightlife a plus, because it means the neighborhood is a lot quieter and safer than other areas of Ann Arbor.
Overall this area is great for walking to the medical school and hospital, living near other medical students, and especially having easier parking than in the central downtown/kerrytown areas. You also escape the rowdiness of undergrads by living here. The main reason I gave it a "7/very good" rating was because I don't like feeling isolated in location from central campus. Walking from White Coat to restaurants/bars downtown is at least 20-25 minutes, and often I decide not to go just because I don't want to walk there and back. After 6PM everyday parking is free downtown (free all day on Sunday), which is nice, except you don't always want to drive if you are going out to bars. It would be nice to have some type of casual coffee shop or restaurant in walkable distance to White Coat, but there is not. (edit: there is one breakfast-like cafe near White Coat, but it gets busy and is over-priced). There are some restaurants and coffee shops down the street on Plymouth road (not downtown) which is an easy 5 minute drive.
Multiple apartment/condo complexes within 10 minute walk of one another creating central location for many medical students of the University of Michigan. Park is 5 minute walk away. Lecture halls are 15 minutes door to hall. Hospital is 15-20 minutes from door to specific area of hospital. Never any safety issues. Parking can be strict and limited. Few stores and restaurants nearby.
This neighborhood is a 10 minute walk to the hospital which makes is very popular for medical students, residents, and even attendings. It is quiet, but it can be very busy in the morning and around 4pm when everyone is arriving/leaving their shifts. Grocery stores, cafes, and restaurants are a 5 min drive away near north campus.
Pros: beautiful - near the Huron River (5 min walk!) and trails and lots of trees. Very quiet. Residential area - maybe only 20% students vs. long-term residents where I am, though I'm close to the hospitals and med students, architects, and engineers all live up here. Very safe, and I see deer or even a raccoon once in a while. Grocery store is 1 mile away (Kroeger).

Cons: less social than I like in terms of proximity to Rossers. There is only one on my street that I know of.
Right next to University of Michigan Hospital, and I've never felt insecure or unsafe walking to/from school/work at any hour of the day. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance and bus stops right outside the complex.
