Student Experience

Study in a cosmopolitan urban environment with access to world-class arts, theater, recreation and sporting events

Our Twin Cities campus is the only Big Ten campus located in a major urban environment. The resources available to students are unparalleled. Located in Weaver-Densford Hall, the Twin Cities campus offers interprofessional activities with medicine, nursing, dentistry, public health and more. You might be surprised to find out how small the college actually feels with only about 107 students per class. Students tend to think it more as a family than a university.
