Outstanding and innovative academic offerings combine with a diverse campus community, dedicated faculty, and a central location in beautiful Ann Arbor to make the University of Michigan one of the nation's most desirable universities. As a community, the students, faculty, and staff are committed to a vision of U-M as an organization that intends:
|Students per Faculty||15 to 1|
|Undergraduate classes with fewer than 30 students||74%|
|Undergraduate classes with fewer than 50 students||84%|
|% from Minority Groups||23%|
|% with Highest Degree in Field||91%|
U-M's location in the heart of Ann Arbor offers unrivaled access to the cultural richness of the University and the community, with exceptional museums (including the recently expanded and renovated Museum of Art), galleries, performance venues, entertainment, sports and outdoor spaces.
98% of new freshmen live on campus

The Department of Public Safety (DPS) is a full-service police agency that serves the University of Michigan community. Residence halls receive the additional protection of the Housing Security officers, who work with DPS. In addition to DPS and Housing Security, U-M and the City of Ann Arbor offer many services to help students stay safe. Free University buses run throughout campus until midnight or later, and there are free or low-cost night-time cab services available to U-M students.
