Housing and Dining

Your residence hall is way more than just a place to crash. It’s where you’ll make great new friends and create some of your most memorable Michigan Tech experiences. It’s also where you’ll eat on campus most days.

Get to know your housing options at Michigan Tech. Our three residence halls—Douglass Houghton Hall, McNair Hall, and Wadsworth Hall—aren’t just clones of one another. Each has its own style, its own personality, and its own individual houses within the hall geared towards helping students develop community. Hillside Place offers apartment-style living to students of sophomore standing or higher, transfer students, students over the age of twenty-one, and international students.
