Staying cool in Mosher-Jordan Hall at Michigan

Our home on campus is Mosher-Jordan Hall. You will be a part of a dynamic community of students and staff who live together in one residence hall.

Whether you're watching a movie or working on a group project, it's great to live with your friends. And if you have any questions, your Resident Counselor (RC) lives down the hall and is there for you 24/7.

Here's Our Set-Up:

  • Live in double rooms with communal bathrooms.
  • Every air-conditioned room includes a bed, study desk, bookshelves, closet, and Wi-Fi.
  • Lounges, laundry facilities, and the Summer Discovery office are all in our residence hall.
  • Located on the popular "hill" section of central campus, adjoined with the Hill Dining Center and close to Central Campus Recreation Building and Palmer Field.
  • Less than a 10-minute walk to State Street in the heart of Ann Arbor.

Delicious All-You-Can-Eat Dining On Campus

Eat in the new Hill Dining Center. Enjoy three meals every weekday, and two on weekends, while on campus. Choose from daily options that include hearth oven pizza, grilled sandwiches, burger bar, wok station, and salad bar. Are you a vegetarian? Do you have food allergies? Special diets are not a problem.


Our RCs are committed to the support and supervision of Summer Discovery students. Daily sign-ins and room checks are mandated for your safety. You are free to walk around campus and Ann Arbor (our 'home area') in small groups. If you have a question, RCs are on duty to help.

Not feeling well? Summer Discovery staff make all medical appointments, accompany students to medical facilities, obtain prescription medications, and notify parents after medical visits. Appointments are made with University Health Service or UM Mott Children's Hospital.
