Cohodas Hall

The tallest building on Northern’s campus, Cohodas Hall houses many academic departments, administrative offices and community outreach centers. These include:


  • College of Business
  • Graduate Studies
  • Academic Affairs


  • Office of the President
  • Finance and Administration


  • University Marketing and Communications
  • Continuing Education
  • Northern Michigan University Foundation
  • Northern Center for Lifelong Learning

Cohodas Hall will undergo a major renovation in the near future, which would create classroom space on the lower floors.

Several service departments formerly housed in Cohodas Hall are now located in C.B. Hedgcock Hall, including admissions, financial aid, registration and scheduling, and the registrar’s office.

The building is named after Upper Peninsula banker and philanthropist Sam M. Cohodas.
