This section contains pictures of the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota, which was founded in 1851 by territorial legislature(even before the state of Minnesota was created).

This campus is divided by the Mississippi River into east and west banks, which are joined by a pedestrian walkway on top of the Washington Avenue Bridge. The east bank is filled with old, attractive stone buildings. The newer west bank has 60s and 70s era facilities, like the Wilson Library, Rarig Center, and law building.

The campus has continued to grow. Recent additions including a cutting-edge basic sciences research building, and the stainless-steel covered Weisman Art Museum(on the river's east bank near the Washington Avenue Bridge). The most recent addition is probably the The McNamara Alumni Center/University of Minnesota Gateway building, located where Memorial Stadium used to be at Oak and University. It's unique appearance resembles a giant stealth-fighter cockpit.

The U has one of the largest campuses in the U.S., and is an important part of southeast Minneapolis and the state.
