Welcome to the banks of the largest freshwater lake in the world. To national parks, deep history, and thousands of acres of forestland. Welcome to four seasons, year-round adventures, and vibrant community. Welcome to the Copper Country. The community. The campus. Welcome to Michigan Tech.
Michigan Technological University is located in Houghton. The area is home to 12,000 residents, and active with locally owned shops, eateries, high-tech companies, music festivals, and parades. Michigan Tech and the Copper Country have a small-town feel. Students and community members say it's just right—not so big that it's easy to get lost, but not too small, either. An ideal place to call home.
