Students crossing the pedestrian bridge near Coffman Union

Welcome to International Early Arrival Housing!


Welcome to the University of Minnesota! We are thrilled that you have chosen to join our community, and we look forward to the awesome contributions you will make as a student on our campus. We are also happy to have you staying in International Early Arrival Housing.

Below you will find opportunities to connect with other students and explore Minneapolis and St. Paul (jointly called “the Twin Cities”) before classes begin. We have included information about shopping/food, transportation, activities to enjoy, and Move-Out.

There are also helpful links for new students on the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) website for new students. Make sure to visit the site for more information about how to get started at the University and meet the ISSS staff!

Finally, we want you to know that the Housing & Residential Life staff are here to support you. Whether you are only living with us for the summer or will continue to stay on-campus during the school year, we want you to have a good experience.

If you have any concerns, please talk to the staff at the Information Desk in the lobby of your building or contact us.

Be well,
Housing & Residential Life
