Around the House

We believe that our tenants should thrive both at school and at home. Galt Speak student houses are well-maintained, secure, close to campus and come with convenient amenities.


Homes include free on-site laundry, chest freezers and dishwashers. Some homes have off-street parking, two refrigerators, and 55" TVs.

On-site laundry

Each house includes a free washer and dryer for tenant use.

Off-street parking

The majority of our properties have off-street parking for multiple vehicles.

Good neighborhoods

Duluth’s East Hillside is a convenient, thriving location with easy access to schools, downtown and the beautiful parks and trails of Chester Creek.


Security features and peace of mind that your home will be taken care of even while you’re out of town.


Every house is inspected and licensed for rental by the City of Duluth. This means that all necessary safety measures are installed and working properly, including smoke and CO detectors, and egress windows.

Well-lit properties

All Galt Speak houses have outdoor lighting to help visibility when the winter nights grow long and for added safety.


Deadbolts are located on all exterior doors and locks are changed before move-in if previous tenants’ keys are not returned.  All bedrooms also lock for individual peace of mind.


Dedicated property manager and maintenance technician.

Property management

We have a dedicated property manager to answer all of your questions and to ensure your experience in a Galt Speak house is worry-free.
