About The Northern Center at Northern Michigan University

Located on Northern Michigan University’s campus, the new, state of the art Northern Center offers 25,000 square feet of comfortable meeting and event spaces for small groups to groups over 600.

Northern’s hometown of Marquette is a city of 20,000 residents located along the southern shore of Lake Superior. Michigan’s Upper Peninsula region is known for its safe, friendly and natural environment. Marquette enjoys four distinct seasons that are celebrated by a wide variety of festivals and activities throughout the year. The Marquette community and Northern Michigan University are intricately intertwined, which adds to the vitality of the area and to the opportunity provided to guests of your event.

NMU’s 360-acre campus features 52 facilities, including the Seaborg Science Complex, a state-of-the-art venue with more than two dozen laboratories, and recently renovated Thomas Fine Arts and Art and Design buildings. NMU's campus also houses a university theater, an award-winning library, a university center, two art galleries, and a three-structure sports and recreation complex of which one is the Superior Dome, the world's largest wooden dome.
