School Spirit Lives Here

When students arrive on campus to begin their first year of medical school, they will be sorted into one of four M-Home houses. Houses provide students with their own community and group of peers with whom they can navigate the triumphs and challenges of medical school. House members form bonds while participating in service-learning opportunities, competitions and social events. They even compete for the M-Home house cup! 

Maize House: Named for one of U-M's two official school colors, members of Maize House find themselves saying “a-maize-ing" way more than they ever imagined and getting especially excited for “Maize Out” games at Michigan Stadium. 

Blue House: Named for U-M's other signature color, Blue House members take pride in knowing their name is part of the official rallying cry for all students and almost always own school spirit gear in this color. Go Blue! 

Victors House: Members of Victors House have the honor of their house being named for the greatest fight song in college football history, The Victors. They make sure to know the lyrics inside and out on game days and never miss a clap or a hail. 

Wolverines House: It’s great to be a Michigan Wolverine and it’s even greater to be a member of the Wolverines House. While you won’t see a costumed mascot representing U-M, members of this house carry the wolverine’s tenacity and strength with them all times. 

These house names were launched in 2024 to reflect and champion our shared school spirit as part of the University of Michigan community. M-Home house names have evolved since first launching in 2015 and previously were named after leaders in the medical community and letters of the alphabet.
