A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

Northern Michigan University’s physical campus is made up of more than 50 facilities. It is located just minutes from the shore of Lake Superior and downtown Marquette, Michigan.

The campus’s main quad, or academic mall as it is called at NMU, consists of the Learning Resources Center 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 and McClintock buildings. The other main academic facilities are Whitman Hall and the Jacobetti Complex.

The majority of classes are held in Jamrich, New Science, West Science, Thomas Fine Arts, Forest Roberts Theatre and McClintock.

There are 10 residential areas on the campus. The campus also features several high-end specialty computer labs, a speech and hearing clinic, two art galleries, two on-campus radio stations, a public TV station, a university center with a 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.
