Northern Michigan University’s physical campus is made up for more than 50 facilities.
It is located just minutes from the shore of Lake Superior and from downtown Marquette, Michigan.
Northern has the largest private education LTE network in the United States. It is also completely wired.
The campus’s main quad, or academic mall as it is called at NMU, consists of the Harden Hall and Olson Library, Jamrich Hall, the Seaborg Science Complex and the Hedgcock Student Service Center. The arts plaza is right down the sidewalk from Jamrich and includes Forest Roberts Theatre, Thomas Fine Arts, McClintock and Art and Design buildings. The other main academic facilities are Whitman Hall and the Jacobetti Complex.
NMU uses various facilities for classroom space, labs and faculty offices from one end of campus to another. However, the majority of classes are held in Jamrich Hall, Weston Hall, West Science Hall, Thomas Fine Arts, Forest Roberts Theatre and McClintock.
There are 9 residential areas on the campus. The campus also features several high-end specialty labs, two art galleries, two on-campus radio stations, a public TV station, the Northern Center with the Barnes and Noble College bookstore, and one of the premier sports complexes of the Midwest, which includes the Superior Dome – the largest wooden dome in the world.
One aspect of the NMU campus that students say they enjoy is that everything is within easy walking distance.
