College Heights is Not Your Average College Neighborhood...

Known for its scenic streets lined in flowering trees and lush landscaping, College Heights is easily one of the most coveted communities in Ypsilanti. Though it sits adjacent to Eastern Michigan University, College Heights isn’t a typical “college neighborhood”. It’s a peaceful and serene yet friendly and fun-loving community where neighbors walk their dogs or gather in the community park. Plus, you’ve got to love that location—walking distance to EMU or a short bike or drive Downtown!
