ROOM & BOARD:

  • Living On Campus:  The University of Michigan - Flint Housing and Residential Life Office web site provides detailed schedules of room and board options and rates. All residence hall room contracts require a meal plan for both fall and winter semesters.
  • Living On your Own:  The greater Flint community offers many options for living arrangements. The financial aid budget allows for off-campus rent and food costs. However, your costs will depend on your housing arrangements and lifestyle. We suggest you evaluate carefully the costs you might incur by living off-campus.
  • Living at Home: Students who live at home and commute to campus will have reduced room and board costs. The allowance for room and board in the financial aid budget for commuting students is there to acknowledge ongoing family household expenses (food, utilities, etc.).

 


 

Individual Budgets

The budget you have been assigned is listed on SIS.  It represents a reasonable estimate of the cost of attending the University of Michigan - Flint.

NOTE:  Tuition and Fees are the only portion of the budget that will show as charges on the student's account except for those students residing on campus.
