Apartments & Rooms


To pursue our mission of being an intentional international intercultural interreligious living learning community, we encourage all of our residents to share apartments with people from different countries than their own. This is why contracts are offered by each individual bedroom, not as an entire apartment (except for 1-bedroom apartments and for families). We find this is an excellent opportunity for residents to explore and learn about other cultures, attitudes, and world views. Additionally, this can be helpful for international students coming to the U.S. for the first time who might have trouble finding a roommate before arriving. ECIR will match the person with another apartment mate/s based on each person’s application.

All utilities are included in your rent. To ease your transition and arrival to Ann Arbor, all apartments at ECIR are fully furnished. Each includes:

Bedroom Living Room Kitchen Utilities
Double or Single Bed Sofa or Love Seat Oven/Stove Heat
Desk, Chair, and Lamp Arm Chair Refrigerator Air Conditioning
Closet or Clothes Cabinet Side Tables or Coffee Table Microwave Electricity
Small Bookcase Lamps Cookware
(Pots, Pans, Cooking Utensils)
Water and Sewer

Security Deposit: A full month’s rent is due for a security deposit.
A security deposit is taken and held in escrow by ECIR until the end of the agreed term. This covers costs for the repair of any damages caused to the apartment property while in possession by the resident. Apartments are carefully inspected for condition by each resident at the beginning of each contract term, and then a move-out inspection is conducted with ECIR at the end of every contract term. Security deposits are refundable within 30 days of departure.

Preparation Fee: $160 per individual contract.
The preparation fee covers various office administrative costs surrounding your residency and also the time necessary to fully prepare linen sets and kitchenware, ensuring that each apartment is move-in ready upon each resident’s arrival.
