If you are currently a community college student you should see a Ferris DMSE advisor as soon as you can so you can set up at good transfer plan. By applying to our program early, we can help you sooner rather than later. We are here to help so give us a call.

We are an urban campus in the middle of a clean and safe mid-western USA city. While we don't have traditional dorms, we have a number of good convenient solutions for you. Just off our campus is ‘5 Lyon' whose managers will lease a bedroom or apartment to you and help match you up with roommates. Other students find housing in walking distance in the Victorian era ‘heritage hill' district. Others live nearby in traditional apartment complexes and drive a short distance to campus. There are many safe and affordable solutions and our student services department will be able to help you locate housing.
