3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing at the college is alright, the dorms are bigger than what I've been told a normal dorm situation would be and while the ACB building is old, I find it very livable. Currently, there is construction throughout the building to update elevators and other issues.

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty nice, and you get a kitchen at the ACB which is wonderful for cooking.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I am lot living on campus seems fine

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing at the Taubman Center is pretty good. You are in the same building as most of your classes, which can be really nice. My main problem is that there is not enough room for people's belongings. They put three people in rooms which were designed for two, and this contributes to the problem. The maintenance and facilities staff for housing are excellent.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's about $5,000 for the whole semester.

There's the ACB dorms and the Tubman dorms. There are two types of rooms:

A. 2-3 people

B. 4-6 people

The ACB will be renovated this summer.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
