"318 Commons is my second home. There is an amazing community that I can rely on when it comes to socializing, homework and food.” — Gao Xia, Junior

Welcome to your home away from home at 318 Commons!

Located in the heart of Med City, 318 Commons is an ideal living complex for emerging medical professionals. The proximity to the University, local medical professionals and in-building classrooms makes housing at the University of Minnesota Rochester one of a kind.
