What We Do...

The University of Minnesota’s Real Estate Office provides services including leasing, licensing, purchase and sale of real estate, and permits for University property.

Mission Statement

The Real Estate Office provides system wide leadership in the area of real estate management. Its twofold mission is to:

  • Provide exceptional real estate services to help the University fullfill its mission of research and discovery, teaching and learning, and outreach and public service.
  • Generate the highest return over the long term in the strategic management of the University investment real estate and surplus property - those properties not assigned to a campus or research facility (Rosemount Research Center, Trust Lands, Severed Minerals, Salt Spring Lands and oversight of the Permanent University Fund [PUF] Lands).

The vision of the Real Estate Office is to create strategic value by integrating the management of the University's real estate assets into its decision-making processes.
