Housing & Residential Life

Apply to live on campus! 

Three residence halls and two apartment complexes provide coeducational on-campus housing for nearly 500 students. Several Community Advisors (CA) in each of our residence halls help to guide our students through their first year on campus with safety tips, study advice, and encouraging them to get involved in on-campus activities.

All rooms on campus are furnished with extra-long twin beds, wardrobe and drawer space, desk, mini-fridge, and chair for each student as well as computer access. Laundry facilities are also within each residence hall.

Many residence halls have lounges for students, friends, and families to just hang out! Depending on the residence hall, you may enjoy watching TV, playing ping-pong or billiards, or get involved in floor/hall sponsored activities. The people you meet in the residence halls will be a large part of your great experience at UMC! Visit the Residential Life website for more information.

Student & Family Experience

Student and Family Experience is a program for new students, making the transition into college life smooth, seamless, and memorable. From the start, our students are connected to the campus community including faculty, staff, and other students beginning with registration and orientation. Our Student & Family Experience Coordinator is dedicated to assisting new students in their transition to the college environment and is an exceptional resource for students, parents, and family members about campus services, policy, procedures, requirements, and campus activities.

Health Insurance

The University of Minnesota Board of Regents requires all students who register for six or more credits to have hospitalization insurance. You will be asked to show proof of health insurance by presenting your insurance policy name, policy number, and policy phone number. If you do not have health insurance, you will automatically be charged for University sponsored insurance.


Minnesota law requires all students born after December 31, 1956, who are enrolled in a Minnesota public or private college or university to be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, and rubella. You are legally required to provide this information. Anyone who fails to submit this information within 45 days after beginning classes cannot remain enrolled. For more information on immunizations and health services, visit their website.
