Introducing Minnesota North College – Vermilion


The Vermilion Campus is located in beautiful Ely, Minnesota.

We pride ourselves on our strong academic programs, our athletic experiences that we offer, our many and diverse student clubs, and of course, our friendly and helpful staff and faculty.

Our campus serves a total of about 700 students – 600 on campus and the rest online or at other sites. Our student body is made up of about 68 % male and 32 % female, with most of our students attending full time. The majority of our students are from the Midwest, yet we have international students as well – this year from countries as far away as Australia and Japan.

Minnesota North Vermilion costs are affordable, and we provide a living experience right on campus. You may prefer to live in the residence hall and not have to go outside during the winter months, or you may prefer to have a brisk wake-up call as you walk to classes from your Timber Ridge or college apartment. Either way, we can meet your needs.

Campus Hours of Operation

Vermilion Campus is open Monday – Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The campus is closed on Sundays.
