St. Paul Campus

The Epicenter of All Things Tommie

The St. Paul campus is our main campus and the biggest of the three. It is the central hub for student housing, with residence halls for all first and second-year students. Recreational facilities and most sports also take place on this campus.

This campus is divided into two parts. St. Paul’s north campus is located off historic Summit Avenue within walking distance to trails and lookout points where you can see the Mississippi River. Across the street is our south campus. There you’ll find the hub for STEAM on campus, The Schoenecker Center, and the Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity.

Get to know the neighborhood by exploring one of the walking or bike trails that loop alongside the river. You can also take our intercampus shuttle from St. Paul to Minneapolis and back.
