Graduate Student Life


Your life as a St. Cloud State graduate student isn't confined by campus boundaries.

Students find many resources in the St. Cloud area. The community and the campus also partner on events throughout the year.

Our students are well served by a strong metro transit system, welcoming community events, competitive schools and easy access to recreational activities for adults and children.

We offer support and opportunity for students on campus and at remote locations such as St. Cloud State at Plymouth.

Community Resources

Although graduate school can be consuming, effective stress-management demands down time.

Explore our St. Cloud community to help you make the most of your life away from your desk. You'll find information on:

  • Entertainment
  • Activities and events
  • Recreation
  • Schools and government
  • Off-campus housing

Additional Resources

Distance Students

St. Cloud State graduate students earn their degrees through traditional, online, blended and distance-learning formats.

No matter what delivery method, you will be included in all communications from the School of Graduate Studies.



Sometimes the stress of graduate studies is best relieved by sharing the experience with others facing the same issues.
