Residence Hall Learning Communities

What are Learning Communities?

Learning Communities are living areas in the residence halls where groups of students with similar interests choose to live, study, and experience Michigan Tech together. The goal of these areas is to help you grow and succeed at Michigan Tech, both inside the classroom and outside. In the Learning Communities, extra peer staff members provide support and involvement so that you can make the most of your experience.

Michigan Tech offers eight Learning Communities:

  • Computer Science
  • First-Year Experience
  • Forest Resources & Environmental Science
  • Leadership
  • Summit
  • Visual & Performing Arts
  • Women In Engineering

Basic Requirements of Learning Community Members:

  • Be open and willing to meet new people, learn new things, and have a great time at Michigan Tech.
  • You will be enrolled in and will complete a one credit Creating Your Success (UN 1010) course in the fall semester with other Learning Community students. (For first year students with fewer than 30 credits)
  • Pay a $30.00 per semester fee to support additional programming, activities, and peer staff. (Included in Learning Community room and board fees)
