Unit's name.

The U and the Central Corridor

The University of Minnesota is working with the Metropolitan Council and other agencies to bring to life a light rail transit line that will service the Twin Cities campus. The Central Corridor line will run along Washington and University Avenues as it connects downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul. This new line will serve both East and West Bank campuses. At the east edge of campus, the Stadium Village station will serve the Biomedical Discovery District, local businesses, and visitors of our sports arenas, including the new TCF Bank Stadium.

As light rail becomes part of campus, it remains essential that research programs and infrastructure, public safety, teaching facilities and the campus environment not be compromised. The U is committed to working with the Metropolitan Council and other project partners to find a guaranteed solution for protecting research and the research infrastructure along Washington Avenue, so that conditions along this research corridor do not deteriorate.
