Riverhouse Condos

The Riverhouse apartments are very hit or miss - some of them are newly renovated and super great while others are not renovated and have landlords that are a difficult to work with.

Riverhouse Condonminiums

Great! Landlord is fantastic - attentive and communicative. Only challenge has been the parking issue (does not appear to be enough parking given the number of residents). Solution: apply for parking quickly with the start of the new year so you and your roommate get a spot.

Riverhouse (White Coat are)

There are lots of things to consider when deciding where to live in medical school. Because of the pandemic, I am grateful to be in the White Coat area, which means I see my classmates on a more frequent basis due to the sheer number of us living here.

Things that I love about my apartment: hardwood floors, balcony, big sunny windows, open dining room/living room/entryway design, in-unit laundry (not all Riverhouse has this I think), big bedroom.

Things that could be better: kitchen size (pretty small), appliance/bathroom/kitchen update, more storage, would love a yard (but we have tons of grass/green space).

River House Condo Rental

Riverhouse condos fall just over the line onto the nice side of the "white coat neighborhood". They are hit or miss because they are privately owned and rented, therefore the amenities (dishwasher/washer/dryer) as well as the "niceness" of the apartment varies. Our individual unit has some problems with the heat and being too hot as well as some humidity problems. I assume this is unit to unit as I have not heard this in other units. Additionally, any unit maintenance is reliant on your owner for the most part. Additionally, payments can be electronic or in some cases by mail which is a hassle (owner dependent).

One parking spot comes with the apartment, another spot is a scramble (1-2 days) to see who can get the application in for an additional space as they always run out.

Pool is the nicer pool in white coat neighborhood and is pretty well kept up and nice to use during the warmer months.

12-15 min walk to the hospital.

Really like it here

I really like the apartment that we are in. It is nice with hardwood floors. There is also a pool which is nice in the warmer months. These are condos so every landlord is different and every unit is slightly different. Noise isn't a problem. The complex is a mix between grad/medical students and older adults/retired people. I have had problems with Michigan Condominium Management. I have called when there have been problems on the weekend when they have people "on-call" and they are not helpful at all. They answered the phone calls and each time it seemed like it was a chore to answer the call.

Socially, if you have friends in the complex it is very convenient to walk over to their apartment, however it is an Uber away to any bars or social scene.

Great place for medical students

This is a great location for medical students because it's right across from the hospital and med school buildings. A lot of med students live here. The rooms are relatively small but the living spaces (dining room, living room) are pretty big. We have hardwood floors which are great but each condo is owned individually so that may not be the case in every apartment. It's a pretty quiet neighborhood filled with students and professionals (haven't seen many families with children here).

Quiet condo, good location

- 15-20 minute walk to the UM med school and hospital, also walking distance to many bus lines
- Across the street from the river with lots of wildlife around
- Generally quiet and always the right temperature (window A/C unit rarely needs to be used in the summer)
- The owner of our condo is fair and responsive, and maintenance people are friendly and helpful
- Big closets in both bedrooms and in the bathroom

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.
