The University of Minnesota’s One Stop website is the central repository for information regarding registration, records, financial aid, billing, payment, and veterans benefits and should be your first stop when searching.

It's important to take good care of yourself—physically and mentally! University resources range from conventional preventative and diagnostic care and recreational facilities to mental health counselors and alternative therapies.
Beyond the Classroom
Student organizations are a great way to meet other students while exploring your interests, developing leadership skills, and being an active part of the community. The University of Minnesota has over 1,000 student groups, with many of them directly tied to College of Design programs.
In today’s globalized marketplace, nearly every organization has an international component. Learning abroad is one of the best ways to gain this experience and differentiate yourself from others. The Learning Abroad Center is the University of Minnesota's comprehensive resource for study, service-learning, intern, volunteer, work, and travel experiences worldwide.
