Student and Residential Life

If you want to know what Michigan Tech is really like, you have to learn a little history first: Michigan Technological University is a leading public research university, home more than 7,000 students from 60 countries around the world. Founded in 1885, the University offers more than 120 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Our beautiful campus in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula overlooks the Keweenaw Waterway and is just a few miles from Lake Superior.

Now, what makes us so crazy smart? Because we’re crazy fun, too. Michigan Tech students dive into experiences like:

  • Broomball and ice bowling—you have to see it to believe it.
  • Playing along with the world-famous, one-of-a-kind Huskies Pep Band.
  • Designing, duct-taping, and racing 50+ cardboard boats.
  • Building world-record snowballs and snow statues during Winter Carnival (The Weather Channel comes up to cover the fun.)
  • Checking out the Northern Lights (shimmering light shows are right outside your door.)
