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 transfer students, second-year students or higher, students over the age of twenty-one, and international students.

You may use your meal plan in any of the residential dining halls. Meal hours are posted throughout the halls. In the case of a class, lab, or work schedule conflict, arrangements can be made to pick up a meal. There are a variety of entrées offered at each meal, including vegetarian options; salad, deli, and pasta bars; stir fry, pizza, dessert, ice cream, waffle, and beverage stations. Dining Services is happy to work with students who have any allergies or other dietary needs.

Guest passes can be used at any of the residential dining rooms, so share them with your family and off-campus friends for an all-you-can-eat meal.

Dining Dollars are pre-loaded on your student ID and are accepted at the Campus Café, Library Café, Fusion, the North Coast Grill and Deli, Huski Cafe at Mont Ripley, and vending machines. You can add more Dining Dollars to your account anytime.
