Whether you choose the privacy of your own apartment or the companionship of sharing with a friend, you can walk to classes at the University of Michigan in under 25 minutes. On weekends, use the bus that stops directly outside Atrio Apartments to get around town, or keep a car in the free parking facility instead. However you choose to travel, head into the center for a traditional American breakfast at Fleetwood Diner, or for Cuban street eats at Frita Batidos.
At the end of a busy day, push open your front door, kick off your shoes, and adjust the air conditioning to the perfect temperature. Hang your coat in the closet, before putting your feet up in the living room. On sunny days, head out to the courtyard to catch up with your friends and top up your tan; then retreat to your bedroom to get a head start on the week’s assignments. If you feel like a workout, lace up your sneakers and catch a ride to Eberwhite Woods for a jog on the park’s scenic trails.
In winter, Wurster Park is the place to be, with a steep hill perfect for snow sledding. When you get home, warm up with a shower in your bathroom, knowing that with gas, water and heating included in your rent, you can use all the hot water you need. Throw your dirty clothes in the washer dryer, then put something tasty in the oven for dinner. Let your dishwasher help with the cleaning up, then get your culture fix with a night out at concert and theatre venue The Power Center.
