Due to COVID-19, the 2020 UMD Summer Senior Rental Program is cancelled.  Registered program participants will be contact via email with additional details.


The UMD Summer Senior Rental Program offers housing and programming for active retirees during 5-, 8- and 10-week sessions each summer.

Where will I live?
Summer living at the University of Minnesota Duluth provides low-cost housing in campus apartments, easy access to great amenities like a newly updated fitness and recreation center, walking trails, a high quality campus library and art museum, and dining services. The campus is tucked into the heart of Duluth, overlooking Lake Superior and minutes away from world-class recreational and cultural activities.

What is there to do?
There’s always something going on at the UMD Summer Senior Rental Program! Program offerings include a weekly lecture series, area environmental tours, building potlucks, fitness classes and other leisure activities. Summer Seniors also get together to form groups around favorite activities like golfing and hiking. Participate in group activities as much or as little as you prefer.

What dates are available & how much does it cost?   
We offer a 5-, 8-, and 10-week session each summer. Our earliest arrival date is in late May, and our latest departure date is August 5, 2020. Our price? Very affordable. Rental rates start at less than $1600 for a 5-week rental.

How do I sign up?
Our informational mailing for the upcoming summer is sent out in January, and we begin taking reservations at that time. If you would like to receive our annual mailing, give us a call or send an email.
