Located between Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Hamline provides a close-knit community feel nestled within big-city life. Restaurants, theatres, parks, museums, and Fortune 500s are only a short trek away, and the Hamline-Midway neighborhood boasts some of the best food around.
80% of first-years live on campus, so it’s a great way to meet new people and get acquainted with the Hamline-Midway Community.
The Hamline neighborhood has excellent public transportation, including high-frequency bus service, city bike-share, and the Light Rail line—so Pipers can easily explore all the Twin Cities have to offer.
Let’s be honest—what you eat is a big part of your life on campus. Our goal is to keep it delicious, healthy, and varied, while accommodating all allergies and special diets. (Check out the Piper Profiles to get campus dining pro-tips!)
Located on the corner of Snelling and Minnehaha Avenues, the bookstore is more than textbooks (but it’s got those, too!). It’s also where you’ll find your Piper gear, grab snacks on-the-go, and stock up on school supplies—yup, you’ll still need notebooks and pens!
The thriving Hamline-Midway neighborhood offers the perfect environment to enjoy all the Twin Cities has to offer, steps from campus. Just a few blocks off campus lies a whole world of ethnic restaurants, hip coffee shops, and music venues to explore.
Hamline's social media accounts are a great way to get a behind-the-scenes look at the people, places, and activities that make up our vibrant community.
