Inspired by site and location, the lodge feel of Hillside Place provides amenities and warmth that students are looking for to have a home away from home.
Michigan Tech’s Hillside Place offers a new type of campus housing, combining the social benefits of dormitory style housing with the option of an independent apartment lifestyle. The hybrid building fits into the University’s modern architectural style, but also evokes a unique “north woods lodge” aesthetic with forms, details, materials and finishes not typically used in student housing.
The building contains private bedrooms with semi-private bathrooms and shared great rooms including kitchens. The building also includes a wide variety of common areas to enhance the live-learn experience. The upper lodge features a large lobby/lounge with kitchenette, fitness center, sauna, and multi-function room. The lower lodge includes a lounge space, game room and meeting room. Laundry rooms, trash rooms and quiet study lounges can be found on each floor.
