Background: The University of Minnesota's Twin Cities campus is the oldest and largest campus in the University of Minnesota system, and is considered to be the third-largest campus in the United States with an attendance of over 45,000. It actually consists of two campuses in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, but the student body is shared and gets between campuses with a dedicated bus transit way.

Minneapolis:
When originally built in 1851, the Minneapolis campus overlooked the Falls of Saint Anthony on the Mississippi River, but it was later moved about a mile downstream to its current location.

Today's campus has buildings on both banks of the river, but the East Bank is the main portion of the campus. It contains six residence halls (the University administration believes the terms "dorm" and "dormitory" have negative connotations), and four of them are concentrated into a 4-city-block space known as the "Superblock." Next to the Superblock is a large medical complex that used to be operated by the University, but has since been sold off to Fairview Health Services, which operates a network of hospitals in Minnesota.

St. Paul:
The University's St. Paul campus is actually located north of the city of St. Paul, surrounded by the suburb of Falcon Heights. The campus is primarily associated with agriculture, and there is a significant amount of farmland maintained nearby.

The St. Paul campus also borders the Minnesota Fairgrounds, where the Minnesota State Fair is held every year. Minnesota's Fair is one of the largest in the United States, usually lasting about 10 days through Labor Day. Because of the heavy traffic associated with the Fair, classes do not start on campus until the day after Labor Day. This is also a rule that generally applies to Minnesota's public schools.

Sports:
Sports teams associated with the Twin Cities campus of the University of Minnesota go by the Golden Gophers moniker. The Gophers are members of the Big Ten Conference and the Western Collegiate Hockey Association in the NCAA. Most of the facilities that the teams use for training and competitive play are located on the East Bank of the Minneapolis campus. There are arenas for male and female basketball (Williams Arena) as well as hockey (Mariucci Arena).

There used to be a football stadium on campus, but the football team started playing at the Metrodome near downtown Minneapolis once it was constructed. Memorial Stadium was torn down and the area has since been developed with other University buildings. As of 2003, there is major ongoing discussion trying to determine if a new stadium can be built on campus.

Media:
The Twin Cities campus has a newspaper as well as a radio station. The newspaper is The Minnesota Daily, which is printed each weekday during the normal school season. The paper claims to be the largest student-run paper in the United States. It was first published on May 1, 1900. The Daily is operated by an organization of students, not by the university.

The campus radio station is KUOM "Radio K" and broadcasts during the day on 770 kHz AM as well as at night on 106.5 MHz FM. The station first went on the air on AM in 1993, and started broadcasting on FM in 2003. However, because the station only broadcasts on AM during daylight hours and because the nighttime FM signal is very weak (8 watts), Radio K additionally streams content over the Internet.

Weather:
Like any other place in Minnesota, the campus can receive some harsh weather. In the winter, temperatures in the region sometimes dip below -20°F, with wind chills perhaps -60° or lower. Large amounts of snow can fall as well, but the University's Facilities Management team is very proactive about clearing snow quickly.

It is extremely rare for the University as a whole to have unscheduled closings. Classes were cancelled for half a day on September 11, 2001, but the last time the campus had a weather-related closing was January 18, 1994 when then-Governor Arne Carlson ordered the shutdown of state government services throughout Minnesota during a period of extreme cold. However, many individual classes will be canceled by professors and teaching assistants during any given year, and evening courses are not held when Minnesota holds political caucuses.
