Residence Hall Theme Communities

What are Theme Communities?

Theme 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 Theme Communities, extra peer staff members provide support and involvement so that you can make the most of your experience.

Michigan Tech offers eight Theme Communities:

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

Basic Requirements of Theme 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 Theme 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 Theme Community room and board fees)
