Northwoods Life


Ironwood is located about 500 miles northwest of Detroit and about 400 miles north of Chicago. It is located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Students from tropical and subtropical regions coming to Gogebic Community College should be prepared to make a major adjustment to the climate, especially to the long winters with heavy snowfall.


Gogebic Community College does have housing on campus. The Campus Suites is the on-campus student housing option for students attending GCC. It's an affordable and convenient choice for our students coming to Ironwood, MI from distances near and far located just steps away from classes.
