Schedule a Visit

Minnesota State Mankato will begin offering face-to-face tours and visits to campus again beginning on July 6, 2020. One of the key safety features you can expect is a requirement that all staff, students, and visitors wear face coverings during the visit. The University will provide cloth masks to all students prior to the start of the fall semester and our Admissions Office will have some available for visitors this summer. We will continue to offer virtual visits of our campus, but we are excited to begin welcoming people back to our campus carefully.
