Housing & Child Care

Take home message: U-M has numerous housing and child care facilities, which are subject to compliance obligations in terms of their infrastructure, safety, management, and environment. If you live in U-M housing or use the child care facilities, you need to understand the rules and regulations that apply to those facilities, as your non-compliance with those rules has the potential to affect a large community of people.
