The University of Minnesota, established in 1851, is one of the top public research universities in the United States. Our campus is located in the beautiful and exciting cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul (the "Twin Cities") in Minnesota.

The University of Minnesota Twin Cities stretches over 1,150 acres in Minneapolis and St. Paul, right on the banks of the Mississippi River. Students enjoy views of the sparkling Minneapolis skyline and of St. Paul's rolling lawns and historic architecture. Our campus is also close to several neighborhoods full of restaurants, coffee shops, and convenience stores.
