Thriving Location - Close to Everything!
Concordia University is ideally located just minutes from both downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis, which significantly broadens your options for jobs and internships while you're in school as well as career prospects after graduation.
Our convenient location will introduce you to the many fascinating cultures that come together in our local community and will prepare you to succeed in an increasingly global workplace. The Twin Cities metro area offers an array of entertainment options -- so you'll never be at a loss for fun things to do when you take a break from studying.
In the Land of 10,000 Lakes, you're never very far from nature -- even in the heart of the cities. With miles of walking, biking, inline skating and cross-country ski trails, two zoos, parks and golf courses throughout the metro area, you'll find plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors.
Concordia University is just a stroll away from the beautiful Victorian mansions of historic Summit Avenue, where the Governor's residence is located. One block beyond is Grand Avenue with several miles of unique restaurants and shops -- a window shopper's paradise!
At Concordia, you're part of a close-knit campus community, but you enjoy the benefits of a dynamic metro area. The Twin Cities offer great shopping, professional sports, amusement parks, dozens of theatres, museums, concert venues, and much more.
If you're looking to immerse yourself in the fine arts, it's tough to beat the Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
Concordia University is an excellent home base for sampling the cultural scene or scouting out performance opportunities.
