The ICC operates under two contract periods: Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer. The periods of ICC membership contracts correspond generally to the academic terms of the University Of Michigan College Of Literature, Science and the Arts. The standard ICC Housing Contract types are:
STANDARD CONTRACT PERIODS
8-month Fall/Winter contract
4-month Fall Only contract - See details below.
4 month Winter Only contract
4-month Spring/Summer contract
2-month Spring Only contract
2-month Summer Only contracts
ICC's Membership Committee may define other standard contract periods corresponding to specific academic programs. We currently offer this type of contract for the ICPSR sessions and the Global Reach program.
Non-Standard contracts are available during the Fall/Winter contract period and the Spring/Summer contract period. Fall/Winter Non-Standard contracts can only be signed beginning October 1. Spring/Summer Non-Standard contracts can be signed at the same time as standard Spring/Summer contracts.
For more information on contracts please call the Member Services Staff at 734.662.4414 x100.
Fall-Only contracts are limited in number. Current members can sign a Fall Only at the beginning of the Fall/Winter signing period. New members can begin signing Fall Only contracts as available starting January 16th. There is a required $500 Fall Only Fee. This fee will be waived or refunded if you extend your contract into the Winter Contract Period.
You can also sign a full Fall/Winter contract (September to April) and actively recruit someone to take over the entire winter portion of the contract (January to April). The drawback is that if you don’t find someone you will still be obligated financially until the end of the Winter contract (April).
BOARDING CONTRACTS (Meal-Plans for Non-Residents)
If you do not live in an ICC coop but would like to eat meals in a group setting, then you may consider signing a boarding contract for an ICC house. Boarding meal-plans are a great way for the average busy student to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal every weeknight. You can sigh for a full-boarding or partial-boarding contract. Please check with the office or view our amenities chart to see which houses offer meal plans. Outside boarders must be individually approved by the house. Monthly boarding charges can also vary per house.
SPECIAL NEED ACCOMMODATIONS
The ICC is committed to making it possible for people who want and need our services to have access to them. If you have a special need, talk to the house president and the Director of Member Services about how we can make you feel at home and comfortable.
The contract dates are set by the Membership Committee. There is a period between summer term and fall term where the comings and goings and room assignments at the house are in flux. This time is known as interim. During this period, members who are moving out late may overlap with members that are moving in early. Not to worry! If you know what to expect you can prepare for anything. Get in touch with your house president and find out when your room will be available and what can be worked out if you have to get in before hand. They'll be able to work it all out for you.
