Housing & Residential Life is proud to offer two Family Student Housing Properties for students who are married, partnered, and/or have children. Both properties are owned by the University but are independently managed as cooperatives. The contracted cooperatives are resident owned and operated companies that are independent from the University.
Housing options for students with families:
Commonwealth Terrace Cooperative
The Commonwealth Terrace Cooperative (CTC) is located south of the University of Minnesota's St. Paul campus and west of the State Fair grounds. CTC is only a few blocks from the inter-campus bus line and has easy access to the freeway system.
Como Student Community Cooperative
The Como Student Community Cooperative (CSCC) is located between Hennepin and Como Avenues and 27th and 29th Avenues Southeast approximately halfway between the St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses and on the city bus line.
Student Parent HELP Center
The Center offers programs and services that are designed to promote access, retention, and academic success for University of Minnesota undergraduate students who have children.
