Douglass Houghton Hall, or DHH, is our smallest residence hall. It has about 360 beds available across its three floors. The building opened in 1939 and its many architectural embellishments are characteristic of that time period. It provides a scenic view of the Keweenaw Waterway and is within a five-minute walk of the water. Plus, its proximity to campus gives residents quick access to classes and labs.

You're more than welcome to bring a vehicle to campus, but you might not need it. If you can't get what you need on campus, we have a number of transportation options to get you around town—not to mention the rides you'll get from friends! If you do decide to bring a vehicle, you'll need to register it with Transportation Services and pay the fee to obtain your parking permit. Permits are also available for motorcycles, scooters, and snowmobiles. Please note that winter storage is not available on campus.
