Off-Campus Housing

Page address:


Shopping for an apartment is made easier with the Student Housing Comparison Guide.  Each local apartment complex chooses which amenities to package with the rent, and this guide helps you keep track so you can compare options and cost.


You don't need a car to live off campus.  Many apartment complexes are within walking distance of campus, and the City of Mankato and the University offer a variety of bus and shuttle services to meet student needs.
