The UMD campus is located within the city of Duluth, MN and covers 244 Acres.

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:
UMD aimed to be as inclusive as possible in reporting our STARS data. This submission reflects data for our entire main campus, and also includes research and other facilities near our campus as well, including the Natural Resources Research Institute and Coleraine Minerals Research Center, and the Large Lakes Observatory. As a result, 55 buildings are included, with a total square footage of over 3,500,000 square feet.
