Home to more than 40,000 students, the University of Michigan is a vibrant campus and Ann Arbor is ranked as the number one best college town by Forbes. Whether it's the bustling halls of the Michigan Union, the quiet solitude at the library, the casual atmosphere of the Dude or the beautiful weather on the North Campus Diag, there’s a spot for everyone at Michigan.

The College of Engineering is settled on North Campus, in the heart of nature and surrounded by the schools of Art & Design and Music, Theatre & Dance. With more than 30 public art installations and 1500 students living on North Campus during their first year, creativity and energy is everywhere you look.
