The University of Minnesota Rochester is one of five public universities in the UM system. The newest campus, UM Rochester was opened in the downtown area, near the Mayo Clinic, in December 2006 and exclusively offers degrees in health science and biotechnology. This campus is home to the Center for Learning Innovation (CLI) focusing on undergraduate pedagogy in the living laboratory setting. UMR students are able to take advantage of all opportunities afforded to University of Michigan students, such as Study Abroad, on top of the National Study Exchange offered at Rochester.
The University of Minnesota Rochester is an amazing school. The Chancellor takes time to meet every student. They work to create the education that is right for you.

The University of Minnesota-Rochester (UMR) is the perfect campus for a student that is positive that he/she wants to pursue a degree in health sciences, at a small campus. I believe that UMR is better than a typical college campus, because the students can go directly to their professors and ask questions at a few different locations on the small campus, the kind of interaction we have with the professors at UMR isn't like most colleges in the United States. Also, there's a sky-way that connects the school apartment to the rest of the campus, so if you live at 318 Commons, you don't have to walk in various, unsuitable weather conditions.
