The University of Minnesota is a large university with several campuses spread throughout the U.S. state of Minnesota. There are five primary campuses in the Twin Cities, Duluth, Crookston, Morris, and Rochester. A campus was open in Waseca for a time. The university also operates several research facilities around the state, including some large tracts of land. The other major higher education network in the state is the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System (MnSCU).

Campuses

The flagship Twin Cities campus is by far the largest in the system, with a total enrollment of 51,721 students (undergraduate, graduate, professional, and non-degree included); Duluth reported 11,729; Crookston had 2,528; Morris had 1,811; and Rochester had 143, bringing the system-wide total to 67,932 for fall semester 2010 [1].

The colors of the university, which are used system-wide, are maroon and gold.

Twin Cities

Because of its size and several decades of history prior to the addition of other campuses, the University of Minnesota Twin Cities (sometimes abbreviated UMTC) is what most people think of upon hearing "University of Minnesota." It can actually be subdivided into multiple parts. Most significantly, Minneapolis and neighboring Saint Paul (actually, the suburb of Falcon Heights) each have distinct campuses. The Minneapolis and St. Paul campuses are connected via a dedicated bus transitway. The buildings on each campus are connected by a series of underground tunnels and above-ground skyways called The Gopher Way. The campus has 51,721 students enrolled for fall 2010, making it the fourth largest public university in the United States [2].
