My apartment is great. Clean, modern, and the building has lots of amenities. There is also free coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and cookies every day.

Nice being close to downtown

Convenient location close to Downtown coffee shops, restaurants and bars. The building is a bit noisy with many undergrads but overall not too bad. Rent is high for a 1 BR but is consistent with other buildings with similar amenities. Mangement company was challenging to work with when signing the lease. Not re-signing lease for next year.

Nice apartment and good management, maintenance is super fast and apartments are new

Very nice, it's a little more expensive than compared to other options here in AA but it's a great place to live. Close to bars and restaurants and relatively close to Ross (around 13 min walk, which is not bad for me).

Comfortable and Quiet

Overall the Varsity is a great property. While it is on the expensive side, it offers a fully furnished unit with all utilities included in the rent. Parking is $200 per month, so if students do not want that they can choose to remove it and pay less. The apartment is very quiet in general and is in a great location relative to restaurants on State St. and Main St. It is also roughly a 15 minute walk to the business school.

Really great location

The apartment is nicely furnished (granite countertops, couch, chair, bed, etc.). It's just a little small for the price tag, but I love the location, feeling safe, and having everything I need right where I live!

Quiet but could be bigger

I have overall enjoyed my experience but it is pretty small and I don't have a lot of closet space.

Awesome place

I love the facilities and the location. Also, price includes all utilities so it's good that everything is fixed. Although the grade of the facilities are better at Munger, since maximum roommate number is 4 which is less than Munger, I feel more cozy.

Downtown Reviews

This building is one block from downtown, one block from the public library (great study location), and 2 blocks from campus. It is a 2 min walk to main st. and all downtown Ann Arbor has to offer.
Great eats, fun events, incredibly safe area. The restaurants are fantastic, you are at the epicenter of the social scene, and its a great place to walk around and explore.
Love this neighborhood because it is so close to many great restaurants. Walking distance to almost anywhere on campus.
Great location, very close to the University of Michigan central campus as well as shops and restaurants.
Restaurants and bars are close by. But it never feels like the party spills over into the neighborhood.
Great spot to meet up with people. Lots of great restaurants and bars in the neighborhood.
Close to downtown; away from fraternity/sorority life and undergrad partying. Train is closeby which can be noisy on some mornings, but hasn't been an issue.
<10min to all the downtown bars/main street

1 min to skeeps

<10min walk to Ross and University Street.
15 min from the football stadium/bus
