Students walking and biking on campus

On-Campus Living

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

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.

Live Here Our Community

Moving right along.

Our team prides itself on a safe and efficient move-in. It is lively day that is exciting, stressful, and bittersweet for students and families. Move-in Dates: August 15 (apartments) & August 30-31 (residence halls). 

Watch your UMN email for your housing assignment and move-in details later this summer and find more tips to get ready for your next big move!
