About Bemidji State Univeristy

Bemidji State University serves over 5,300 students in undergraduate, graduate and online degree programs. Our core philosophy is built upon a commitment to environmental stewardship, community service and global understanding. You’ll see that commitment in what we teach and in what we do. Located on the western shore of Lake Bemidji, our north woods campus reminds us daily of the need to be in tune with our world. Similarly, the American Indian culture of our region beckons us to begin our global journey by understanding our past as we prepare for the future.

We educate people to lead inspired lives.

We create an innovative, interdisciplinary and highly accessible learning environment committed to student success and a sustainable future of our communities, state and planet. Through the transformative power of the liberal arts, education in the professions, and robust engagement of our students, we instill and promote service to others, preservation of the earth, and respect and appreciation for the diverse peoples of our region and world.

Campus information

Sitting upon the western shore of Lake Bemidji, peppered with stands of pine, oak and birch, our campus is as beautiful as it is safe and welcoming.

Many of our students enjoy the outdoor lifestyle year round. Our proximity to the lake and the surrounding north woods gives us easy access to all kinds of recreation, including kayaking, boating, hunting, hiking, foraging, skiing, fishing and even ice fishing through the winter.

If you’d prefer to avoid the outdoors through the northern Minnesota winters, you’re in luck. Our major campus facilities are connected by all-season underground passages, so you can get to and from most places on campus without having to brave the weather.

We provide nearly everything you could need right here on campus. Hobson Memorial Union includes a convenience mart, ATM, the campus bookstore and abundant student lounges and meeting rooms. The American Indian Resource Center is a hub for all events and services of interest to Native American students. And our state-of-the-art academic facilities, from Bridgeman Hall to the Bangsberg Fine Arts Complex, are fully equipped and open for student use.

Our lakeside campus is situated in Bemidji, Minnesota, a small and welcoming town with plenty of modern amenities. It offers an ideal environment for focused university study. BSU faculty and staff provide all of our students with ample personal and academic support.
