Since the releasing of the new campus housing prices on October 23, several students have complained about the high rates for beds in the new facilities.

A chart comparing rates from other regional universities show that The Union at Midtown is only more expensive than the University of Michigan-Flint campus housing.

It is less expensive than residences at Oakland University, Michigan State University, Eastern Michigan University, University of Michigan Ann Arbor, and Wayne State University.

Students can also subsidize the cost of living at the Union by working on-site as a Community Assistant. By working 14-18 hours a week, students can cover their rent, and would receive hourly wages for each additional hour worked.

“A lot of people have been applying and been really interested in that,” said Dennis Lienhardt, President of Student Government.
