Housing Summer Hours

Do you have housing questions?  Housing is open during the summer from 8am to 4pm, Monday through Friday.  You can call us at 906-487-2682, visit us at 153 Wadsworth Hall, or email housing@mtu.edu for assistance.  Calls and email received after normal business hours will be responded to on the next business day.
If you have an urgent problem (NO heat, NO water, NO electricity) that cannot wait for the next business day, please call the 24 hour DUTY phone: 906-487-3889.  Students living in the residence halls are also encouraged to visit with the student staff members who live in the residence halls with them.  Your RA is a great resource for all types of assistance!


Limited Theme Community Spaces Available

Theme communities are living areas in the residence halls where groups of students with similar interests choose to live, study, and experience Michigan Tech together. The goal of these areas is to help you grow and succeed at Michigan Tech, both in and out of the classroom.

You can read more about all of the theme communities online:
https://www.mtu.edu/housing/campus/communities/

Limited space is still available in the following theme communities: Forestry Resources (Wadsworth Hall), Leadership (Wadsworth Hall), Visual and Performing Arts (Wadsworth Hall), Summit Healthy Living (McNair Hall), and Women in Engineering (McNair Hall).

First year undergraduate students who live in a them community will enroll in a one credit Creating Your Success (UN 1010) course in the fall semester with other theme community students. An additional $30 community fee per semester is applied to student accounts for students who live in these areas to support their additional activities.

If you would like to update your room assignment to join a theme community, please email housing@mtu.edu from your Michigan Tech email account.  Let us know your full name, Mnumber, and the theme community you wish to join.

Summer School Housing

Will you be taking summer school classes at Michigan Tech? Summer school students can live in Wadsworth Hall for track A, track B, or for the full summer. All summer school students will live in the same house together. You can request to be in a double occupancy room with a roommate, or you can request to have the room as a single. An unlimited meal plan is included, but there are no dining dollars or guest meal passes in the summer.

The cost for track A or track B for a double occupancy room with a roommate is $1764 per session. The cost for track A or track B for a single occupancy room is $2044 per session. Full rates are posted online.

Beginning on April 1, summer school housing applications can be completed at Housing, 153 Wadsworth Hall, Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm. A copy of the summer school housing application is available online.

Squeaky door?  Sticky lock?  If you need a repair in your residence hall room, or if you notice something that needs repair anywhere on campus, please complete an online repair request form.  This form is submitted to our Facilities staff who perform repairs Monday through Friday during business hours.
