Great value but no window in your room

It was a really nice place to live and make friends, especially if you want to get a break from seeing the same people and groups at your school/community. Many activities and events.

Roommates can be upside (become your Ann Arbor's family and friends) or downside (annoying, noisy).

Most of the bedroom do not have windows, but for me it was not a problem (can take a nap between classes uninterrupted).

Close to downtown, only ~10 mins walk to Ross and other central campus location, an advantage during the winter.

Fire alarm goes off easily and can make you being evacuated in the middle of the cold night.

Easy Option for those looking to live close to Ross

Munger is brand new and is very well furnished. It is close to Ross and most other things on campus. The only downside is the lack of windows in bedrooms.

Best All-in Option, Closest to Ross

Are there cheaper places closer or as close to Ross School of Business? Yes.
But is there a new building (2-3 years old) with a gym and outdoor running track all-inclusive this close to Ross? Nope.
Having building controlled heat/cooling is definitely not ideal and living with 5-6 other grad students may not be your ideal option (weigh this heavily). I happened to luck out with 6 complete strangers and a wonderful living situation...
Also, coming from a Californian, you get used to not having natural light in your personal room as the common areas have large windows. Sounds unbearable but it's AMAZING for mid-day naps.

Loved It

I had great roommates. Not all of them as clean as I would like but its great getting to know students from other disciplines. The apartments are large so it's sufficient room for 7 people, as crazy as that might sound. If you're okay with not having any windows in your room (most people adjust) then this is a gem.

Great Amenities, close to campus and not very expensive!

Live with 6 other students from different schools. Each apartment is close to 3000 sq. ft., well-upholstered with everything you need in the apartment (washer, dryer, 2 microwaves, 2 stoves, 2 large fridges, etc.);

General amenities are also great - study rooms, music room, running track on top floor, gym, game equipment, video room, cycle storage, etc.

They do not offer 9 month leases (which is a disappointment), but not very expensive ($~875/month); Campus is between 7-9 minute walk.

Great apartment, good people, escape school

An extremely nice apartment with all utilities included and more amenities than you will use. Living with graduate students in other schools allows you to interact interesting and fun people of similar ages without having to feel like you are smothered by discussions of assignments, exams etc. of your school when you are at home. A fun escape for people that like having roommates. Private bedroom and bathroom when you need your own space.

Interprofessional Collaboration with Fantastic Amenities

Munger is a fantastic living environment if you don't mind walking 15-20 minutes to the medical school every day (and/or allotting time to take the bus). Each resident has their own bedroom and bathroom, but shares a spacious common space/kitchen with 5-6 roommates. Your roommates are typically from other graduate programs, seeing as the purpose of Munger is to promote interprofessional collaboration and communication. In terms of amenities, there are beautiful study rooms, a gym, a movie theater, game room, and small store as well. It is extremely secure as well.

Munger Graduate Residences

I moved into Munger during its inception in Fall of 2015 and I have been very happy with my living arrangements. Due to the fact that I was apart of the inaugural class, the housing authority allowed those residents to break their lease due to graduation. My understanding now however is that they only offer year long commitments. I have been very happy with the cost of living, proximity to Ross and the included furniture. The apartment came furnished with mattress, major kitchen appliances (stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave all x2), TVs and couches in common area as well. The major drawback is that most rooms do not have windows and you can't really crank the heat up or the AC up when it is hot. The temp stays between 68-74 degrees year round.

Absolutely wonderful. Too much to take advantage of.

The rooms and common areas are large, each person has their own bathroom, there is a movie theater, there is a ping-pong table, there is a game room, there are multiple study areas and a gym upstairs that includes an outdoor track, the rooms are comfortable and--there is simply too much to take advantage of. It is a great deal and the location is great.

My only complaint would be that there is no sunlight in the bedrooms. This is not true for all rooms, but it is for most rooms.
