As the University of Minnesota Crookston navigates through these unprecedented times, here are some of the resources that the University is providing for students:

Mental Health

Your health and safety are the first priorities of our campus. We all tend to handle challenges and stresses differently, and that is perfectly o.k. Be sure to reach out when you need something. Various resources can be found in the student resources section of our campus COVID website. To access telehealth services for students who are currently residing in Minnesota, please visit the Counseling Services website.

Student Resources 

Please refer to the student resource webpage containing community services, internet options and health and wellbeing.  To field questions and concerns, we have created a live chat that can be accessed directly from the Crookston COVID-19 webpage. UMN Crookston Dining Services is providing to-go meals on campus Monday - Friday from noon - 1 p.m. and from 5 p.m. - 6 p.m. in the Eagle’s Nest accessible from the Sargeant Student Center main doors. Weekend meals are available upon request. The UMN Crookston Food Pantry, Eagle’s Essentials, remains open in Owen 170 and can be accessed from the Sargeant Student Center main doors. Hours of operation are Monday - Friday from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m.  University of Minnesota students have been given the option to choose “Satisfactory or Not Satisfactory” grading this semester. Please review this FAQ page and contact your advisor to discuss your decision. We have had some reports of microphones not working on UMC issued laptop computers. We highly recommend that you first contact the UMC Computer Help Desk. In addition, some troubleshooting tips can be found in the technology support section of our campus COVID website.

Wellness and Exercise

The Wellness Center will be providing virtual workouts, as well as nutrition tips and tricks beginning March 30. Follow the UMC Wellness Center on social media for updates:

Financial Wellbeing

As stated in previous messages, we recognize that for some students, resources to cover the costs of basic essentials like food and shelter are difficult to come by. This can be especially true in situations when a job change or moving back home was needed in order to comply with our current reality.  For more information regarding student emergency aid contact Lamesha Brown - umcssc@crk.umn.edu in the Student Success Center.

Frequently Asked Questions

As an important reminder, through our Crookston COVID-19 website you will find a robust listing of frequently asked questions with answers for students regarding general questions, coursework, registration and graduation.

If you have other questions, please check our UMN Crookston COVID-19 Resource Webpage. You can also find University-wide information at the Safe Campus website.

I urge you to show your care for others and yourself by following public health guidelines that have the potential to save lives. 

With sincere wishes for good health and continued learning,

Chancellor Mary Holz-Clause
