Though not a traditional campus, Ferris State University – Grand Rapids offers several social activities and events to help expand your social horizons. We play host to various guest speakers and workshops during the semester and there is a growing number of student run organizations.


Housing in the heart of downtown is available so that students can take advantage of all Grand Rapids has to offer. Through our partnership with Rockford Construction, we offer dorm-style living in the beautiful 5 Lyon building. Efficiencies, one, two-, three-, or four-bedroom units are available with the ability to choose your roommates or go through our roommate placement program. Either way, all tenants will have an individual lease. Apartments range from $455 to $655 per person per month. For more information, please call Commerce Realty at (616) 454-7700.
