We have five skywalks on campus. These skywalks connect all academic buildings except the White Building, Rec Center, Riverfront Residence Hall (where School of Management is located) and First Street Residence Hall. These skywalks are great in Michigan’s unpredictable weather and also making getting around campus very productive.
