Here, you’ll walk the halls of majestic stone buildings that recall the University’s and city's historic founding, as well as ultramodern facilities that meet the needs of 21st century students. Almost 60 buildings are clustered on 100 lush acres.
Students enjoy a compact, walkable campus with some 1,900 undergraduates choosing to live in our safe, residential community. Bagley Road actx as a dividing line between north and south campus. On the North Quad, you can study or toss a frisbee with friends under towering native hardwood trees that have been here for generations. On south campus, stroll the wide pedestrian walkway of Grand Street to see and be seen.
