The Best Kept Senior Housing Secret in the Twin Cities!


1666 Coffman Street is a 93 unit condominium for independent senior (age 55+) living which was designed specifically for people who have worked in virtually ANY capacity at the University of Minnesota at any time during their working careers. 1666 Coffman offers a rare quality of life in a unique location, easily accessible to the St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses via the Campus Connector Bus, and with direct bus links to the downtowns of both Twin Cities and to the Light Rail Transit.

1666 Coffman is a Palladian-style, three-story building on 6.5 acres of University land surrounded by protected natural areas. There are 16 different floor plans, ranging from 1 to 3 bedrooms. The building is professionally managed with year-round maintenance of the common areas and the outdoor spaces. Amenities include the Garden Terrace dining room which serves evening meals Tuesday to Saturday and a Sunday brunch, a lovely two-story library, plus a spacious exercise room with a sauna. There is a gracious social room, which includes a dance floor and a grand piano. There are also two guest rooms available at a moderate cost. The building is surrounded by both natural landscapes and lovely gardens (see below).

And don’t forget the fully equipped workshop for the handyman in the family! Right next door is the brand new Bell Museum, opening soon. And for you avid golfers, the U of M golf course and driving range (both open to the public!) are located just across the street! Even with all its amenities the best feature of 1666 Coffman isn’t the brick and mortar, but the community of people who call it home! It’s a neighborhood all under one roof, with folks who share in a huge variety of interests, programs, and events. Some of these include off and on-site art exhibits and receptions for artists; concerts, lectures and book reviews; Saturday forums with notable speakers; U of M Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) classes as well as exercise classes; Sunday night big screen movies, and much, much more! So, if you have ever gotten a paycheck from the University of Minnesota and are looking for a true lifestyle experience, you’re sure to find it here!
