Hosted by the president, provost and vice president for student affairs, the event will offer participants refreshments, ongoing tours and a short program that will begin at 3:45 p.m.

North Quad is the first new U-M residence hall to open in more than 40 years. In addition to 450 residents, it is home to the School of Information, the LSA Departments of Screen Arts and Cultures and Communication Studies, the Sweetland Center for Writing, the Global Scholars Program, the Language Resource Center and the Max Kade House.

Residents as well as faculty, staff and students are eager to show some of the spaces and activities that make North Quad such a unique living and learning facility. During the open house, visitors will have the opportunity to participate in a guided tour into the residential space, as well as explore the rest of the complex at their own pace.
