The Arboretum is very close and downtown Ann Arbor. The Central Campus Recreational Building is very close as well. The apartment is very big, and the living room is massive. Since I will be working this summer, I prefer for the noise to be kept at a moderate level during the weekdays, but I live upstairs with a fan on so it's hard for me to hear anything anything unless it's excessive. Guests can control the A/C and I allow flexible check out times.
