Our Campus

Students under the Alumni Arch.
Your parents will definitely want a photo of you in front of the Alumni Arch.

Sitting upon the western shore of Lake Bemidji, peppered with stands of pine, oak and birch, our campus is as beautiful as it is safe and welcoming.

Many of our students enjoy the outdoor lifestyle year round. Our proximity to the lake and the surrounding north woods gives us easy access to all kinds of recreation, including kayaking, boating, hunting, hiking, foraging, skiing, fishing and even ice fishing through the winter.

If you’d prefer to avoid the outdoors through the northern Minnesota winters, you’re in luck. Our major campus facilities are connected by all-season underground passages, so you can get to and from most places on campus without having to brave the weather.

We provide nearly everything you could need right here on campus. Hobson Memorial Union includes a convenience mart, ATM, the campus bookstore and abundant student lounges and meeting rooms. The American Indian Resource Center is a hub for all events and services of interest to Native American students. And our state-of-the-art academic facilities, from Bridgeman Hall to the Bangsberg Fine Arts Complex, are fully equipped and open for student use.
