South University

Couldn't be Closer to Campus
Located south of the University of Michigan, the South University neighborhood offers plenty to do. Since it's only a short walk from the Central Campus Transit Center, residents here are close to both the university and the vibrant Ann Arbor nightlife. The neighborhood is bustling with bars, restaurants, cafes, and more. For a morning or afternoon refreshment, one popular cafe fits the bill - Revive, a casual American cafe for anyone looking to hang out while also enjoying delicious comfort food. For restaurants and bars in the neighborhood, Oasis grill lies right on South University avenue and serves Mediterranean cuisine. One Bowl Asian Cuisine is another classic spot offering noodle soups, curries, and Korean food.

Residents here enjoy the area because it allows you to live as close to campus as possible. No matter what you're doing on campus, you will have a super quick commute.

The apartment is a great location, right in the heart of the campus. However, this meant it was very loud. Very accessible to all buses, restaurants and nightlife.
