Community Resources

At University Commons you can choose when and how you want to be involved. A New York Times article cited University Commons as a “model” for active adults. The community has also been featured on national and local television in news features and documentaries. 

See our Amenities Menu above for a list of amenities, committees and groups.

Surrounded by woodland, we are located on a hill above Huron Parkway north of Gallup Park. City bus service is available at our entrance and a U of M commuter bus stop is close by.

Ann Arbor is constantly voted near the top in many best city rankings. It is easily accessible via the national highway system, major rail lines and an international airport.
