This property consists of academic buildings, administrative buildings, residence halls, athletic facilities, parking facilities and property surrounding the facilities.

Neighborhoods and business districts surrounding the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus fall under the jurisdiction of the Minneapolis Police Department, St. Paul Police Department and St. Anthony Police Department. However, UMPD has a stake in keeping the greater campus community, where students live, work, and recreate, safe.
