State-of-the-Art Facilities

Technology and academic excellence guides the design of our buildings

A college campus is more than just a collection of buildings. It's a community. It's the place where you'll make lifelong connections. The place that will become your home away from home.

From the moment you arrive at Minnesota State Mankato, you'll be immersed in an environment that's friendly, welcoming and just the right size. Our comfortable, modern campus is filled with exceptional state-of-the-art educational and recreational facilities.

Not only is our campus home to some of the best educational facilities in the Upper Midwest, but we've even renovated our student recreation and fitness center, making it one of the only "Tech Rec" facilities in the nation, meaning you can check e-mail or do online research while you workout. Many of our renovations to our athletic, performance, academic and recreational facilities, are privately funded, which keeps tuition affordable and makes Minnesota State Mankato a great value.

Curious to see for yourself? We love showing people what's possible when great minds meet great design and great facilities. Contact the Admissions Office and we'll arrange your campus visit. It's easy to set up and will give you a chance to meet other students, check out classes or clubs, talk with a coach, pick the brains of our faculty and get a first-hand look at your future.
