Daniell Heights is normally reserved for graduate students, married or partnered students, students with children, and students over the age of 21. However, we are making exceptions right now for other current or transfer students who may want to live more independently and privately in an apartment instead of the residence hall. This change would not be a contract release. This change would be a change in the room assignment and contract type. There are similarities and differences between Daniell Heights apartments and the residence halls that you need to know if you wish to consider this option.
Daniell Heights apartments are part of the on campus housing community. All of the utilities (gas, water, sewer, electricity, trash, internet, and cable) are included like the residence halls. Laundry facilities are located in each Daniell Heights apartment building. Free to wash, quarters to dry. Parking permits for vehicles are required, but parking is conveniently located throughout the apartment complex, often in front of the building.
Contracts for the Daniell Heights are also different from the residence halls. Rent is due on a monthly basis on the first day of the month and is on the student account. A meal plan is not required because each apartment has a full kitchen for your use. The first day of the contract would be August 15, 2020 and the last day of the contract is June 30, 2021. This means the contract is for the Fall, Spring, and Summer Track A. The contract does not end with the last day of the spring semester like the residence halls.
In Daniell Heights, you have the option to share your apartment with another person that you choose. Housing Services does not assign random roommates there. Housing Services does not provide additional furniture if you add a roommate. You can add your own additional furniture if you wish, but all of the furniture that comes with the apartment needs to stay in the apartment. A two bedroom apartment will come with furniture for two people. You can view pictures of the apartments online: https://www.mtu.edu/housing/options/graduate/daniell-heights/
If you want to change your housing assignment from the residence halls to Daniell Heights apartments instead, there is no contract release fee. Housing will make the update for you. You can request a one or a two bedroom apartment. If you want to make the change, please complete the Daniell Heights waiting list (student) form here. You will be prioritized for a change because you already have a residence hall contract.
If you prefer more independence, a private bathroom, a private kitchen and other conveniences an apartment can provide, this may be the right change for you. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
