Yost

Residential Area with Plenty of Reasons to Get Outdoors
This neighborhood gets its name from the university’s former football coach, Fielding H. Yost, who carried the Wolverines to their first national championship in 1901. Yost is home to many students and they enjoy a no-cost Wolverine Tower Shuttle, which transports Yost Neighborhood residents to and from campus. In terms of social activity, there are certainly no shortage of bars and dining options in the neighborhood - including the always popular Fraser’s Pub and frequently visited Lucky's Market. There is also the famous artisan meat, cheese, and sandwich hub known as Biercamp.

In addition to socializing, there are plenty reasons to get outdoors here. Located nearby is the University of Michigan Golf Course and also Burns Park, which has tennis courts, basketball courts, and even a sledding hill for those snow-filled winter days.

Yost — 7.6/10 Rating (based on 69 neighborhood reviews)
The neighborhood is great - definitely more quiet than living closer to campus, but still very easy to get around. It's about a 25 minute walk to Michigan Central Campus, but only about a 5 minute drive. Ubers and Lyfts are easy to come by, otherwise the Woodbury Shuttle and The Ride bus are pretty convenient and reliable during the week.

We signed our lease in February before starting at Ross in August.

An underrated fact about Woodbury is its proximity to Lucky's Market and a CVS on the corner. I have a car, and appreciate the relative closeness to other areas of Ann Arbor to be able to run a quick errand. If you want a quieter neighborhood and don't need to be in the center of the social life at Ross, this is the place for you.

The neighborhood is not as lively or trendy as the downtown area, but it has everything we need in walking distance, including the best coffee stop in Ann Arbor, Roos Roast, a neat grocery store with $2 pints of beer, and a diner Michael Phelps used to frequent, which is perfect for any hungover breakfasts you may experience. It is a quiet and family and pet friendly neighborhood.

The neighborhood is very nice and feels very safe. There is a park very close by which is really nice, and the area is within a 10 minute walk to the stadium which is great. There are many people walking around with dogs in the area, and most people that live there are couples or families

Safe place close to stores. It's a little far from Ross (1.1 miles) or 30 minute walk. Great place to live, good for partners not in school because there are few undergrads in the area.

Definitely in a more undergrad-heavy area so game days can get loud. Being on the State St side of Packard helped a lot in terms of party / loudness though.

Overall, a nice and quiet neighborhood that feels secure and is slightly removed from campus, so you're away from the hustle and bustle of the University. Definitely a grad student neighborhood. Close to public transit lines, and there is a nice grocery store near the apartment complex. Running trails are nearby, and road access to I-94 is pretty quick as well. Within an extended walk of campus, the Big House, and Ross. Really enjoy living here.

Can't beat the parks, dog park, pool, and clubhouse. So many Ross students and Woodbury, it's a great social atmosphere as well. Very safe areas to run and walking distance to the Stadium. Lucky's market is a cool grocery store too which is so close it's basically inside Woodbury Gardens.

I like the convenience of getting to Ross in six minutes for class, group meetings, or coffee chats. It’s great to be able to come home and grab a quick bite before changing into a suit and walking back over. Easy walk to hockey games, and about 15 minutes to Bus/Big House. Well situated to make it to social gatherings at Skeeps, Rick’s, Munger, or any other place.

Woodbury is on the other side of Stadium Ave from Burns Park, but it's convenient access. The complex itself is pretty friendly; lots of law students around though it takes a bit of effort to get to know neighbors since everyone is on their own schedules and it's a generally older crowd.

This isn't the most bustling of neighborhoods, but I was looking for something a little quieter. There's a grocery store, drug store, and some coffee shops within walking distance, and it's also great walking to the Big House on game day. Sometimes I wish there was more in the area and it didn't look so desolate, but overall it's pretty good.
