historic charm with downtown convenience and night life

The Midtown neighborhood’s northwestern corner is where the Ypsilanti Water Tower stands, and Midtown stretches from there in a square ending at Downtown. Because it borders EMU on its north side, Midtown has a lot of student housing and multi-family properties with some single-family residential homes intermixed in between. Architectural styles here include Victorian, French, and 2-story colonial style homes.

Midtown is also home to several EMU fraternity & sorority houses, making Midtown a favorite for college students, party-goers, musicians, and young professionals.
