Living off campus

Off-Campus Housing

Wayne State University is located in Detroit's Midtown, buzzing with art and music venues, cafes, murals, and independent shops selling unique American clothings, crafts, and more. Thanks to the efforts of Wayne State University Police and Campus Safety, it is one of the safest areas in Detroit. In fact, Wayne State University is proud to be one of the 50 safest campuses in the entire United States, an accomplishment largely due to an informed and aware community.

Our Midtown location is rich with housing options for international students and scholars, but vacancies fill up fast. You should begin your housing search as soon as you know that you' are coming to Wayne State University. You can ask your hosting department for help finding housing, or you can search on your own.

Below is a short list of housing options to help you begin your search.
