Snowbird Summer Housing Opportunities for Senior Citizens
What could be better than spending your summer on a serene college campus in central Minnesota?
The snowbirds that stay with us typically have connections to Minnesota, but not necessarily connections with the College of Saint Benedict. The opportunity to stay on campus during the summer provides an easy and affortable option to enjoy the beautiful Minnesota summer days.
We offer furnished air-conditioned apartments from June 1 through August 8. Apartments have two or four bedrooms, kitchen, living room, bathroom (s), and washer/dryer. Enjoy the relaxing environment of St. Joseph while still being close to St. Cloud and only one hour from the Twin Cities!
