There are a host of housing opportunities available for students in the fall.

University of Minnesota students will soon have more options for renting as multiple new apartment buildings are set to open.

Located along 14th Avenue, Identity Dinkytown, The Standard at Dinkytown and Fieldhouse Dinkytown will be available to students in the next few years. 

For Prospect Park, The Station and The Flats are available for leasing this fall.

Three new Dinkytown apartments in three years

Moving in right next to Blarney Pub & Grill, Identity Dinkytown (405 15th Ave. SE) will welcome its first residents this fall.

A pool, fitness center, study lounges and gaming space with a golf simulator will be available for tenants. There will be a market space for  Subway, Five Guys and McDonalds on the first floor of the seven-floor building.

Expecting to open in fall 2025, The Standard at Dinkytown (528 14th Ave. SE) will have a fitness center, pool, computer lounge and cafe.

Director of Development for Landmark Properties Chase Powell said The Standard is a good choice for students because of its mix of amenities and location.

“The Standard’s location and significant amenity offerings make it a premier choice for students attending the University of Minnesota,” Powell said in a statement sent to the Minnesota Daily.

The Fieldhouse Dinkytown (805 15th Ave. SE) will be 12 stories with 272 units, a pool, yoga studio, gym, courtyard and an outdoor patio view of Huntington Bank Stadium.

Sales and marketing intern for Fieldhouse Dinkytown Arthur Dunn said a more modern development like Fieldhouse provides students with better experiences than older developments.

“Being able to be in college and live in a new development, you won’t run into the issues you would in an older establishment,” Dunn said. “It provides students with a much nicer experience.”

The Station and The Flats head to Prospect Park

Designed by the Wall Companies, The Station and The Flats apartments will open in 2023 at Malcolm Yards in Prospect Park.

Located right next to each other, The Station’s construction began in January 2022 and The Flats followed three months later.

The Flats (505 Malcolm Ave. SE) is a six-story, 143-unit income-restricted apartment building, so a student can only rent from there if they make less than $41,100 in 2022.

For students who don’t qualify for The Flats, The Station is available to them. A seven-story, 210-unit apartment building, The Station (616 Washington Ave. SE) has a yoga center, game and media rooms, fitness center and a sky deck facing downtown.

Project Manager for Wall Companies, Jeff Ellerd, said both apartments are ideal for those wanting to avoid Dinkytown while still living near the university.

“We’ve got the Market at Malcolm Yards, the light rail stop a block away and the bike connection is there to St. Paul,” Ellerd said. “We feel it’s well located for those who don’t want to be right in the heart of Dinkytown.”
