Dinkytown: The Most Desired Address on Campus

If there is anything you need at the University of Minnesota — Dinkytown has it!

For decades, students from all parts of Minnesota, the nation and the world, have come to live in the University of Minnesota neighborhood called “Dinkytown”. It is where students stand in line to get a seat at the counter of Al’s Breakfast, experience great entertainment and music at the Varsity Theater and hang out at the Loring Pasta Bar — located in a building where Bob Dylan once lived.
