The New HuskyCard

Do you use the US Bank debit feature on your HuskyCard? If so, please be aware of these important dates:

  • February 21: Any card replacements issued after this date will no longer have the US Bank feature. However, if no replacement is needed and your card has been previously activated, then your current HuskyCard will still work as a bank card through June 2016.
  • June 30: You must withdraw any remaining balance on your card by this date; contact US Bank and any remaining account balance will be returned to you.

If you have never activated the US Bank feature, then this change to the HuskyCard will not affect you, and you can use your card as you have in the past. In the end, this change will make replacing and issuing cards a simpler process for you.

Read more about the HuskyCard changes in our Customer Support Center at the following link.

If you have any questions or concerns about the HuskyCard changes, contact us at it-help@mtu.edu or call 7-1111.

Hearing Loop System in Fisher 135

Recently, Institutional Equity and Inclusion (IEI) and Information Technology (IT) coordinated the installation of a hearing loop system in Fisher Hall, Room 135. This system allows students, employees, and community members who use hearing aids to have a greater ability to hear the content of classes, programs, and events in this room. The idea of a hearing loop system was originally brought forward by a hearing impaired student. The Calumet Theatre has a hearing loop system and this student indicated that Michigan Tech could benefit from a similar system. Funding for diversity and disability initiatives, received from The General Motors Corporation, was devoted specifically to this hearing loop system. IEI and IT worked with Hearing Loop Systems from Holland, MI to determine the best options for Michigan Tech. In the future, as new construction is designed on campus, hearing assistance systems will hopefully be incorporated. IEI would like to promote the availability of the hearing loop system on campus. If your department, group, or organization is hosting an event in Fisher 135 please include the statement “Fisher 135 is Hearing Loop equipped” in your advertising. If you have questions or feedback about the system please email equity@mtu.edu.

Winter Carnival CashKey Special

Transportation Services is running a Winter Carnival special on cash keys:

If you routinely park at the on-campus metered spaces, you may want to consider purchasing a CashKey. A CashKey is a simple round key that can be attached to your car keychain and be used in place of quarters to quickly and conveniently purchase time at a parking meter.

CashKeys may be purchased and reloaded at the Transportation Services office (Admin 100) in amounts of $25, $50, or $100. CashKeys allow parking at a rate of $0.75/hour and may only be used in hour increments. There is a $25 deposit fee that will be refunded upon return of your CashKey.

The Winter Carnival special will run the whole month of February. All CashKey amounts will be discounted 10 percent. That means you can get $25 of parking for $22.50, $50 of parking for $45, or $100 of parking for $90.


Winter Carnival Parking and Extended Shuttle Service

In order to accommodate the many visitors during Winter Carnival, the following lots will be available beginning at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3rd (Lot 11 opens 4 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5th), free of charge, no permits required.

     Lot 9 (commuter lot by the Rozsa Center)

     Lot 5 (graduate student lot by the Rozsa)

     Lot 27 (pay lot between the Administration Building and MUB)

     Overnight parking – you may park in Lot 9, the commuter lot by the Rozsa without a permit.

     Lot 11 (near the Administration Building) will be open at 4 pm on Friday.

Lastly, there will be free parking at all metered areas.  However, please be aware that all other areas/lots not listed above will be fully enforced as usual.

Transportation Services will also extend its operations during Winter Carnival.  The MTU shuttle service will run from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.  The City of Houghton shuttle service will run its regular scheduled service.  Please remember that the MTU shuttle bus is not equipped to handle children but you may utilize the on-demand service that the City of Houghton provides.

We hope you enjoy this expanded shuttle service during Winter Carnival and free parking in designated areas.

For any questions or comments regarding Winter Carnival parking regulations or shuttle bus service please call Transportation Services at 487-1441 or Public Safety and Police Services at 487-2216.
