Living on campus is truly an experience. Since CCS is right in the city of Detroit, you are next to everything that is going on. There's a different vibe to everything, and the atmosphere is alive. When you live on the Taubman campus, you get more of a traditional dorm space. It's neat and clean, and you're required to get a meal plan, which works well especially for freshmen. This might be their first time away from home, and they're learning all these new self-sustaining responsibilities, and to lessen the burden a little bit by having a meal plan helps a lot.
At the ACB, you get to experience a lot more space in an apartment-style dorm, which works better for more independent students and upperclassmen who haven't moved off campus yet. The number of students who live in these dorms is higher, but some people consider it to be worth it because of the full-size kitchen. However, the ACB is an older building and has definitely been lived in, and the elevators seem to break down at the most inopportune times.It all really just depends on what kind of experience you want. If you schedule an appointment with admissions, they can give you a tour of living quarters, and you'll be blown away.
