Our Educational Priority

At Michigan Tech Residence Education and Housing Services, we believe that what you learn in the classroom is just one aspect of your complete college experience. Whether you are in the classroom or in the residence halls, learning is everywhere! Within our on-campus housing, Huskies are able to build community, undergo challenges and celebrate successes together. College requires persistence, determination and dedication to reach graduation. It also requires a solid foundation of support from fellow students, staff and faculty! The on-campus residential community provides a structured and well-researched curriculum designed to support our Huskies as they reach their educational goals and beyond.

Through various initiatives, students are encouraged to expand their horizons, cultivate essential life skills, and develop a strong sense of self. By participating in extracurricular activities, leadership programs, and community service, students are provided with opportunities to enhance their communication, teamwork, and problem-solving abilities.

On-campus living provides access to support services, such as leadership opportunities, mental health support, mentorship and comradery. Students grow as individuals and as a community to become conscientious and resilient members of society.

Our four-year housing plan is designed to transition you smoothly from the security of your first-year dorm to the independence of off-campus life.

Our First Year Huskies

Michigan Technological University requires all first year students to live on campus so that they receive the maximum benefit from our Residence Education support services.

As a university, we are committed to providing all students with a comprehensive educational experience. Living on-campus allows students to be part of a community and make strong connections with other students, staff and faculty. Students will be able to immerse themselves in the complete college experience, with easily accessible on-campus support services, as they transition to college life.

Our Common Language

Community

We live in a world of constant connection, and support from others gives us the security we need to succeed. Building community requires that all members commit to individual and communal growth. They navigate interactions based on an understanding of values and identities which leads to innovation. Members value different lived experiences, communicate openly, and actively include everyone.

Resilience

People encounter big and small challenges every day. Resilience requires prioritizing well-being so you stay motivated and move toward your goals. Resilient individuals take charge of their own lives and advocate for their needs.
