Who can see your viewing activity?
Thanks for joining us to hear more about residence life at Michigan Tech! Feel free to chat in any questions you may have for a Housing Director or Resident Assistant (RA)!
Does each residence hall have their own dining hall?
Is the housing coed or single?
Are there any bathtubs available? If not, are students permitted to bring a foot spa? This concerns a medical disability.
Is there a freshmen orientation?
Is there housing for transfer students?
How many students per dorm room?
What kind of cooking is allowed/available in the dorm rooms?
Are there any certain events that are going to be cancelled or areas that are closed during covid
How long does it take to walk to classes from dorm?
What is the internet access?
How many students are in each dorm room?
Any saunas in any of the halls?
Are there recreational kayaks or other types of equipment that can be checked out for student use?
Michael, the Outdoor Adventure Program by the Tech Trails has great options!
Is there a major price difference between the halls?
how many years are required living on campus?
are the dorm rooms single-gender or coed?
How are the laundry services and are they located in each hall?
Cody, we have a one year housing requirement. Some scholarships require you live in for two years.
What kind of pets, if any, are allowed in the halls?
Do they have roommate matching for Daniel Heights or Hillside Place apartments?
Aimee, we only allow non-predatory fish in a tank no larger than 10 gallons. If students have a disability and need a support animal, they should reach out to Disability Services to seek an accommodation
Is there luggage storage?
is there bathrooms/showers on each floor?
Brenda, the only storage option that we provide is for bikes over the winter. Everything else will need to remain in your room.
Is orientation the same time as move in
Are freshmen allowed to bring cars?
Are you allowed to hang things on the wall such as posters, pictures, and what about TV's?
How big are the desks? Can they hold two monitors?
@Michael, they can… But it’s a tight fit. Often people will put their dresser next to their desk (they are the same height) to “extend” they’re desk space and make it work better.
Also very dependent on your monitor size, two smaller monitors would fit just fine
The questions have slowed down quite a bit. Anyone else have questions? Feel free to private message them to me, as well.
at this current point in time with the pandemic going on, is anyone actually living on the campus?
How is Michigan tech with snowmobiles?
Is there ski storage anywhere or are they stored in the dorm rooms?
are there students that are taking all their classes virtually from their dorm rooms?
can you pan around and show us your rooms?
Are putting in lofts fairly common in the room?
Joshua, all of our beds come lofted.
Thank you all so much! this has been really informational
Last call for questions! :)
Thanks everyone for joining us!
