Why UMN

Explore the beauty (and fun!) of Minnesota

Hiking. Biking. Boating. Skiing. In every season, there's really no end to the fun activities that Minnesota has to offer. We're known for health and fitness, too. Out of 100 "fittest cities" in the U.S., Minneapolis ranks third and St. Paul ranks 12th.

The University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus stretches across more than 1,150 acres in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Nestled around the scenic Mississippi River, the Minneapolis campus is within minutes of a sparkling downtown skyline. The nearby St. Paul campus is home to rolling green space and historic architecture.

Five of our residency programs are in the Twin Cities, while three are in Greater Minnesota. You will find that our three Greater Minnesota residency programs, based in Duluth, Mankato, and St. Cloud, each offers its own unique sense of community with diverse populations, rural and urban practice environments, and local attractions.

You'll find unlimited opportunities for entertainment, culture, and hands-on experience right outside your front door. Our residents and fellows enjoy a wide range of activities and interests, from participating in marathons to mountain biking through hundreds of miles of park trails.
