Small Group Living

Group Houses

Theme Housing

Group Houses consist of 6-8 students sharing a "house living" experience.  This opportunity provides an option for students to live together in a single-family dwelling owned by the university.  Small Group Living is available to Juniors and Seniors who have demonstrated the ability to live in a group situation prior to acceptance into this housing program. 

Requirements and Qualifications

Group Houses are available to fulltime students who are entering at least their 5th semester of living on-campus/being eligible to live on campus or those students age 20+ by September 1. Applicants must have demonstrated the maturity and ability to function well in a Community Housing situation. If there are more applications than available houses, applications will be scored and weighted based on the following criteria:

  • Age
  • Class status
  • GPA
  • Demonstrated ability to live in community housing
  • Having the house full both semesters
  • Previous Student Life violations

Gender Inclusive Housing

This gender-inclusive housing hall will provide a physically and emotionally safe space for the LGBTQ+ population at EMU. This includes all those exploring gender transition, those living into non-binaried genders, and those who embrace the non-cis-hetero-normative identities that some in our student body carry. Gender inclusive housing allows for students to live together regardless of gender assigned at birth in an environment that is explicitly affirming of their dignity and belonging on our campus. This community will provide a supportive space for students to explore and learn about their own identity, while also building lasting relationships with others.

Anyone 18 and over may apply as long as they are explicitly comfortable living with people of ALL genders. This space is not intended as shared living for romantic couples, and living in the same space on any hall on campus with a significant other is strongly discouraged.
