The University of Minnesota’s Real Estate Office provides
real estate services from leasing,
licensing, and purchase and
sale of real estate to
permits for University property.
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 in support of the University's
threefold mission of research and discovery, teaching and
learning, and outreach and public service, and
- 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.
