Awesome set-up

For the amenities you get, the rent is cheap. It’s close to the highway and to the grocery stores. Only downside is the north campus bus stop is a few minutes walk away. Main campus bus is right out front.

Great Place AWAY from campus

Windemere Park is a great place to live for young professionals, including medical students. I prefer to live away from where I work. The AATC bus line is right outside my front door. The apartments are far nicer than those located near the medical school. Vaulted ceilings and fireplaces are the norm. GREAT fitness center also! Newly renovated with free weights, cardio machines and weight machines. Pets allowed for $30 each/month. Most importantly, maintenance is ON IT! So friendly and always fast to do repairs.

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.
