The University of Minnesota Morris is a public, liberal arts institution established two and a half hours northwest of Minneapolis. While UMM offers a variety of majors and minors, the university also offers a number of pre-professional programs and the ability to create a unique area of concentration. First-year students, in addition to their advisor, are also provided with a success coach, who help students connect with others, explore campus resources, and identify their personal strengths. Native American high school students can apply for the university’s Wind-STEP program, which is a free, two-week summer program to learn about careers in science, geographical information science, and wind energy.

  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
The community is small and well connected. The people are friendly and always ready to help. The teachers and students are always ready to interact and get involved.
Xaitheng from Coon Rapids, MN
The University of Minnesota Morris is one of the most diverse colleges out there. There is a big focus on sustainability and the school promotes becoming a green campus. The University of Minnesota Morris is basically a private college at the price of a public college!
Anthony from Morris, MN
Morris is a unique, close-knit community and campus. You feel right at home here the moment you move in. The smaller campus allows you to get to know people and professors while also offering one of the best Liberal Arts Educations in the country.
Rebecca from Milbank, SD
UMM has an amazing learning environment as well as a social environment. Don't get turned away because of the distance from civilization, unless you're a mall bug. It is one of the least expensive U of M schools and financial aid is very willing to help if you need aid!
Xavier from Sartell, MN
The small student body and close knit campus at Morris results in a very unique experience. There is literally a club for every kind of interest you could have, and there is always something to do.
Jordan from Morris, MN
Morris is a lovely little college campus in the heart of rural Minnesota. Because it is a University of Minnesota school, I like to think students here get the best of both worlds - the resources one would find to be available at a larger institution along with the small, close knit feel of a private college. To make it even more awesome, the campus-community relationship that you'll find here is unlike any other that I know of.
