About Student Affairs

We’re here to empower you – our students – to succeed.

Across our programs, services and initiatives, we aim to keep you well, help you solve problems in the face of adversity, and prepare you for careers in a global, complex society. By providing the necessary care and support you need to be physically and mentally able, you will join others to collaborate on and solve large, complex issues. 

No matter what year in school you happen to be in, you will see there are nearly endless opportunities to be engaged on campus and make the most of your time at the University of Minnesota.

See how you can start your own student group, become an intramural official or learn how to be a more informed renter. It’s all here for you.
