Mini-Guide for Relocating to Detroit

Best known for its historical automotive background, Detroit started shrinking in the late 1950s, following suburbanization and industrial restructuring. Despite this decline in population in the past decades, it is still the largest city in Michigan, a major port on the Detroit River, and the largest U.S. city on the border with Canada.

If you are looking to relocate here to attend one of the higher learning institutions in the area, get a job in its central district, or play an active part in its revitalization and renewal process by opening a small business, there are a few things to keep in mind about Detroit.

College Life in Detroit

The main universities in Detroit are the public research Wayne State University (WSU) with around 25,000 students enrolled every year, and the private Catholic University of Detroit Mercy. Both universities have a school of law, a college of liberal arts, and a college of engineering. WSU is also popular thanks to its college of nursing and school of medicine, whereas Detroit Mercy prides itself on its school of dentistry and school of architecture.

As a major cultural center, Detroit also benefits from a College of Creative Studies where students can pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts in advertising design, entertainment arts, illustration, photography, interior design, and fashion design, among others. Aside from these Detroit-based colleges, Davenport University offers classes at Wayne Community College and Grand Valley State University (GVSU) hosts workshops and seminars in its Detroit Center.

Neighborhoods: Students who don't live on campus prefer to rent in Midtown, Rivertown, and Lafayette Park.

Extra info: When going home for the summer holidays, students usually leave their bulky winter outfits in storage units in Detroit. Storage space can be shared with friends and colleagues and is also useful for keeping college papers and books safe from humidity and extreme temperatures throughout the year.

Getting a Job in Detroit

While Detroit has moved on from its booming automotive era, this industry still accounts for a large number of hires in the area. It is closely followed by other manufacturing sectors, finance, healthcare, retail, and technology. Many businesses operate in Downtown Detroit and a lot of professionals prefer to rent a home nearby.

Neighborhoods: Besides Downtown, many young professionals choose to rent homes in Brush Park and the more affordable areas of Corktown, Midtown, and Woodbridge.

Opening or Expanding a Business in Detroit

On the path to diversifying its economy, the city supports local businesses and designs various solutions to attract investors and create jobs, mostly via the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation. One of the recent and successful DEGC programs is BuyDetroit, a B2B procurement community with a free program for small businesses, Digital Ready.

In order to be eligible for the BuyDetroit program, you must have been in business for at least two years and, as a supplier, you must be headquartered or based in Detroit. If you are new or trying to grow an existing business, you can benefit from expert coaching, free educational resources, and access to curated tools, products, and services that suit your business.

Neighborhoods: While Downtown Detroit continues to grow and update with new businesses, large and small, those looking for a less crowded area express interest in the southwestern part of the city, especially along the city's Avenue of Fashion, Livernois.
