Twin Cities

Minneapolis skyline

Together, Minneapolis and Saint Paul combine to form what locals call the Twin Cities. The main University of Minnesota campus is nestled in this major urban area of 3 million residents.

It’s green and lush, just like the rest of the state, but its urban core also pulses with the energy of a vibrant social scene. Arts, culture, professional sports, shopping, and culinary experiences abound. Living here, you’ll have access to all the big city amenities you want, but with the ease and friendliness of a small town.
