Many of our second-year students live on North Campus (not all, North and AFM Halls are on South Campus) but it is a different area of campus and comes with it’s benefits and challenges. Here are a few things to consider:
How far is the walk from North to South Campus?
THE WALK IS NOT BAD! It’s .7 miles. It’s a chance to get your steps in for the day- a 13 min walk and a 4 min bike ride. (The distance is calculated from Red Cedar Hall to the Memorial Student Center)
TIP: Consider that your student may be living off campus next year, so this is a soft transition to wherever they may live in the future.
Do the buses still come to North Campus?
You bet! The campus bus goes every 15-20 min between North and South campus. Pickup location is in front of the library on South Campus and outside Red Cedar on North Campus. The Walmart/Menomonie bus also makes stops on North Campus.

Is there any parking on North Campus?
Yes! North Campus has 4 lots to accommodate students. The lots are rarely full and get plowed in winter.
TIP: Make sure when buying a parking permit, you specify you will live on North Campus!
