Transfer Students

Get ready to be a Gopher

We want you to have a successful transition to the campus community and a home-base to take advantage of all the opportunities you'll discover at the U of M. Get to know new friends, explore your interests, and enjoy the convenience of living on campus.

We offer several options for transfer students, but housing in our residence halls and apartments is limited. Don't wait to apply! You can apply for housing once you have submitted an application for admission.

Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are designated areas within our residence halls for students who share similar academic goals, identities, or interests. Some LLCs are specifically for transfer students while others accept transfers students only as space allows. Due to the demand for student housing, priority is given to transfer students who select and are admitted to one of our transfer student Living Learning Communities.
