Life at Mitchell

The Twin Cities of
Minneapolis & St. Paul


Home to more than 2.8 million people, the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul is recognized for its highly educated and experienced workforce. It’s a thriving business center for finance, retail, industry, trade, and transportation.

› Living in the Twin Cities

William Mitchell is located in a beautiful and historic neighborhood, just minutes from downtowns of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

When they’re not in class or studying, our students can be found relaxing on nearby Grand Avenue restaurants, making connections with the thousands of Mitchell alumni who live and work in the area, and enjoying the vibrant cultural, entertainment, and nightlife that the area has to offer.


Mitchell’s modern, spacious campus is located on historic Summit Avenue in St. Paul.

Our classrooms are equipped with the latest multimedia technology. Students practice their lawyering skills in several mock courtrooms. They relax and socialize  in Hachey Commons. And they study and conduct research in our state-of-the-art law library, which is named after Warren E. Burger ’31, a Mitchell graduate and the 15th chief justice of the United States.
