The University of Minnesota (U of M) is one of the largest public research universities in the country, with more than 2,000 acres of land on its main Minneapolis campus and more than 51,000 students. The University community of Minneapolis is located east of downtown Minneapolis and includes the U of M campus as well as six small neighborhoods: Cedar-Riverside (West Bank), Como, Marcy Holmes, Nicollet Island/East Bank, Prospect Park and University.

Because the Mississippi River divides the University community in two, University is the only community in Minneapolis that officially occupies both sides of the river. On the west side of the river, University is bordered by 1st Street on the north, 19th Avenue on the west and 4th Street on the south. On the east side of the river, it is bordered by the Mississippi River, Oak Street, and University Avenue.

University real estate listings span a wide range of architectural styles and price points, from the West Bank neighborhood's exceptional properties to more affordable apartments and condominiums in Marcy Holmes, Dinkytown and Cedar-Riverside.

Prospect Park is just east of the University of Minnesota, bound by the Southeast industrial area. Prospect Park homes for sale are located on steep hills and curving streets, and boast the Witch's Hat water tower as their main landmark.

The Nicollet Island/East Bank neighborhood is located just east of downtown at the geographical and historical center of Minneapolis. Hennepin Avenue East and First Avenue Northeast connect the 47-acre island to the east of Minneapolis, and Nicollet Island/East Bank homes for sale include late-19th century stone houses.

Homes for sale in the Como neighborhood of University are mostly modest turn-of-the-century bungalows, Victorians and 1920s-era homes, although there are a few newer duplexes and single-family homes. Many large homes have been converted into student apartments.
