The Marquette is surrounded by protected wetlands, offering a peaceful retreat to call home. The East Lansing senior living community is near the Sparrow Health System and Meridian Mall. You’ll love spending time at Michigan State University, Potter Park Zoo and The Michigan State Capitol. 

Live stress-free at The Marquette senior living, a Holiday Retirement community in East Lansing, MI. We serve Troy, Holt, Waverly, Okemos, Haslett, Mason & more.

Flexibility to Customize Your Care at The Marquette

Residents appreciate the freedom and flexibility our independent living communities offer as needs around personal care and medical assistance change. Choosing a la carte from third-party health care and personal care providers* -- many with offices right inside the community -- gives them the power to choose their providers and obtain similar services as they would in a higher level of care like assisted living, but without giving up the independence, warm community of friends, and fun-loving atmosphere they enjoy so much.

There’s so much to explore in the East Lansing area and The Marquette makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.

Complimentary transportation provides residents with easy access to a variety of local activities, events, and attractions, including a bi-monthly “Lunch Bunch” outing to resident-selected restaurants. We also take trips to casinos, wineries, boat tours, musicals, and theaters – to name a few.

Social Activities for Seniors

The Marquette's comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.

Plant vegetables in the community gardens. Root on the Spartans in the "Sparty room" with snacks and good cheer –we have a "Sparty Party" for every game. Attend our monthly spotlight events that feature fun themes and activities.

Pet Friendly

Furry friends are welcomed as residents at The Marquette. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.

The Marquette campus grounds are home to several wildlife that residents call their "adopted pets." You'll often spot deer, woodchucks, squirrels, and birds.

We also have a large theatre room with a projector for streaming programs and movies.

Many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts. Several of our residents participate together in Seniors Helping Seniors initiatives. We also host school supply drives and volunteer with children and teenagers. MSU students often volunteer at The Marquette, visiting residents and helping out.
