Thinking of Relocating to the Keweenaw?

Michigan Technological University is located in Houghton. Michigan Tech and the Copper Country have a small-town feel. Students and community members say it’s just right—not so big that it’s easy to get lost, but not too small, either. An ideal place to call home. Of the safest college campuses in Michigan, Niche.com says Michigan Tech is No. 6.

The area is home to 12,000 residents, and active with locally owned shops, eateries, high-tech companies, music festivals, and parades. Students, staff, and the community enjoy the University-owned ski, snowboard, and tubing hill, golf course, and recreation trails, and other outdoor adventure opportunities the Keweenaw Peninsula offers.
