Campus Life

Set on the banks of the Mississippi River and surrounded by a vibrant metropolitan community with agricultural roots, the U of M's Twin Cities campus has got something for everyone.

The Twin Cities believe in art and artists. The Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, the Guthrie Theater, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts —these are just a few examples. The University of Minnesota’s arts programs are connected to all these creative communities.

It’s amazing. Coming to such a large place, and yet finding such a small community was really exciting. You really find your community, find your support system, and make those friends very, very quickly.

Our campus offers the magnificence of Northrop, the Weisman Art Museum, the Bell Museum of Natural History, the Goldstein Museum of Design, and the West Bank Arts Quarter.
