At Finlandia Hall, we provide a living environment that assists students in accomplishing their academic, vocational, and social goals. Our residential life community is enhanced by professional and paraprofessional staff that are available to assist, mentor and advise students; the enforcement of Student Code regulations; and the promotion of educational, social, recreational and leadership development programs.
As a resident student, you’ll enjoy a clean, safe, fun, and caring environment. Resident students have the opportunity to spend their out-of-class lives forging new friendships and getting involved in student activities and organizations. You’ll become a part of a healthy learning environment where help is available, the staff is caring, and things like safety and interaction are woven into the fabric of everyday life. There is nothing quite like going to college in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
Each floor of Finlandia Hall is furnished with a comfortable student lounge, which gives students the opportunity to watch television, study or catch up with friends. Laundry facilities are on site.
SPACIOUS SUITE-STYLE ROOMS
Rooms in Finlandia Hall are spacious, and furniture is moveable. Resident students are encouraged to let their personalities show while decorating. The double occupancy suite-style rooms have high-speed Internet connections, as well as wireless Internet access.
24-HOUR QUIET FLOOR
Finlandia Hall’s fourth floor is designated as a 24-hour quiet floor for students who prefer an extra peaceful living experience.
Single rooms are sometimes available at an additional cost. If they are available, they will be limited by space and availability.
Being placed in a room with someone you haven’t met is exciting and intimidating. At Finlandia, a Housing Information Form is used to place prospective students with roommates. Our goal is to match resident students based on common interests and living styles.
Each of the wings of Finlandia Hall is staffed by Resident Advisors who are there to lend a hand, offer help and guidance to those who reside at Finlandia and ensure compliance with university policies. These fellow students are trained and available to provide counsel and advice, organize events, and communicate student needs to the Residential Life staff.
