"One thing I love about the Aviation House is the ability to start networking from day one on campus. It is also great to know who is in your classes so you can carpool to Battle Creek together."
— Maria, Sophomore, Highland, MI, Flight Science and Aviation Management Operations


Students in Western Michigan University’s College of Aviation can opt to live in the Aviation House. Located in Ackley Hall, the community offers the opportunity for those with a love of aviation to live together. The College of Aviation is actively involved with the community.
