Fitness, academics, holistic health and more – each of our partnerships was carefully planned to benefit residents at The Pillars of Prospect Park in all areas of life. Our unique programming closely follows the Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality and Healing’s Wellbeing Model, encompassing six categories: Community, Environment, Health, Relationships, Security, and Purpose.

University of Minnesota

With The University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus right on our doorstep, we make the most of the institution’s fantastic schools and colleges through countless partnerships. Live intergenerationally at The Pillars of Prospect Park and regularly engage with students through our exciting calendar of events.

Gopher Athletics

Love all things Big Ten? Us too, game on! We’re proud partners of Gopher Athletics, offering four tickets to all Women's & Men's Basketball home games and Cheer Squad at two home games. Rumor has it that Goldy himself even makes an appearance at our place once in a while… There’s never a dull moment here.

University of Minnesota Alumni Association

Even if you’re not an alumni, you’ll receive a lifetime membership to the University of Minnesota Alumni Association (UMAA) as a Pillars resident. That includes special events and programs, discounts, perks from the UMAA Travel Program, and more. Our Gopher family extends over all generations, from current students to alumni who graduated many decades ago.

Pillars Student Residency Program

Through our Pillars Student Residency Program, residents and students come together for both educationally enriching activities and also simply to have a good time. One-on-one visits, TED Talks, orchestra trips, tech support, knitting for a cause – our programming keeps growing, and so does the number of students who have made our Student Housing their home.

Community Partners

Engage and delight all of the senses. We’re partnered with some of the Twin Cities’ finest musical educators, fitness instructors, and even more areas of interest that are coming soon. Whether a gentle yoga class or a harmonic live performance on a Friday night, partners of The Pillars of Prospect Park are sure to provide.

This Is Community. This Is Home.
