Going To The University Of Detroit Mercy

Known for its programs in dentistry, law, and biological sciences, the University of Detroit Mercy is a school devoted to providing its students with a real-life, practical education that prepares them for a job in the professional world. Founded in 1877, it is now the biggest Roman Catholic university in the state of Michigan. Want to get to know the school? Go for a stroll on the scenic campus commons and observe the majestic WWI Memorial Clock Tower, and old Lansing-Reilly Hall. Or attend a Titans game for some truly inspiring athleticism—many NBA and NFL players have attended Detroit Mercy.

Out of the Campus and Into Detroit

Detroit Mercy’s campus is located just north of downtown, near the Detroit Golf Club and Palmer Park. Good news! Apartments in the area are cheap and plentiful, especially in the areas of Oak Park, Highland Park, and Dearborn. There are also some luxurious units located farther downtown, close to the harbor.

Finding Your Way…to Fun

Detroit is a big city with pretty reliable public transportation. On campus, you'll have to walk everywhere, but that's okay—it's pretty small, and you'll find several bus stops right outside the school gates on Livernois Avenue. 'The Smart Bus' has its own website, complete with its various routes and schedules. You should also know the school has three campuses: Riverfront Campus downtown, the Corktown Campus, and the main McNichols Campus, where you will probably be spending most of your time. As far as actual activities in Detroit go, the city has a bustling nightlife, with tons of places to drink and dance. And lest you fall back on the old stereotype, the town is experiencing a cultural revival that includes a lot of great music; so when the evening rolls around, trade in your books for some dancing shoes.

    I would search the Detroit Housing Commission site: Ask them about programs. The most common national program is the Housing Voucher Program, more commonly known as Section 8. Typically, you will pay 30 percent of your income to rent, and the government covers the rest. There may also be state and local program available for people searching for Detroit apartments.

  • What neighborhoods in Detroit are good for eating out?

    There are plenty of neighborhoods in Detroit that are good for eating out. Probably the area with the highest concentration of restaurants is downtown Detroit, located right on the water. Many other spots densely populated by restaurants stem from this central nexus. For example, the nearby Boston-Edison Historic District is also speckled with food options. Almost every neighborhood in the city has some sort of eatery in its midst, and they are more evenly distributed outside Detroit's city center.
