Twin Cities

The Minneapolis and St. Paul area is the cultural and industrial center of the upper Midwest with a population of about 2.3 million. Beautiful lakes, rivers, and city and state parks combined with the cold winter, cool spring, warm summer, and colorful autumn, provide excellent opportunities for a variety of outdoor activities including biking, camping, swimming, fishing, and skiing.


Graduate students have the option of both on or off-campus housing at varying costs. For more information about graduate student housing, please read more at Housing & Residential Life.
