Students walking and biking on campus

On-Campus Living

Statistics show students who live on campus are more likely to have better grades, stick with school, and graduate on time. Those are just some of the reasons thousands of new and returning students choose University housing to make the most of their Gopher experience.

Are you looking for a social hub in the middle of everything? A laid-back atmosphere with plenty of quiet space? Or something in between? We offer diverse housing options across campus, including nine residence halls and four apartment buildings, each with its own vibe.

Apply Now!

We started accepting applications from new first-year and transfer students wanting housing for the 2024-2025 academic year beginning in November 2023. 

You don’t have to wait until you know the status of your admission to the University of Minnesota to apply. Applying early puts you in a better position to get one of your preferred buildings or room types, and all that is needed is a non-refundable $50 housing application fee.
