Campus Life

Connect across campus and in the community

At the University of Michigan-Dearborn, you’ll get more than a great education. You’ll join a multicultural campus, discover your own strengths, forge lifelong friendships and contribute to your community.

Explore your passions – and make an impact – by joining one of our more than 150 student groups or volunteering in the community. 

Serious about sports? From single-day sports tournaments to low-commitment leagues that meet once a week, intramurals offer the chance for everyday students to get a taste of collegiate athletics. Rather be in the stands? Get a front-row seat at the Fieldhouse to watch the Wolverines take on our division rivals. UM-Dearborn students also have the opportunity to purchase student season tickets to cheer on the Big Ten Wolverines (football, basketball and hockey) in Ann Arbor! 

Stay fit and active with strength training or pilates classes at the Wellness Center. Bike, run or walk on the Rouge River Gateway Trail or in our Environmental Study Area.

Each of our colleges offers a range of opportunities to explore beyond the classroom, with study abroad programs, community-based programming, public events and more.

Or connect just down the road on the Ann Arbor campus, with opportunities to participate in the Michigan Marching Band, Cheerleading, ROTC, Ann Arbor student groups and more.

Life on and off campus is full of opportunities—choose what inspires you.
