Vibrant community boasts school spirit to speak to prospective residents

Located less than one mile from the University of Michigan football stadium, University Living in Ann Arbor boasts school spirit and a location that attracts former professors and alumni as staff and residents. When it was time for a renovation, the community partnered with Direct Supply® Aptura® to create a functional space that exudes the university’s vibrant energy and team colors while blending cohesively with existing spaces.

Featuring a fresh look and hip vibe, University Living in Ann Arbor offers residents a space that feels modern while still retaining a high-end elegance. Boasting a strong connection to the surrounding area, including a shuttle that takes residents to campus, University Living in Ann Arbor will serve Wolverine fans for years to come.
