Living on campus is extremely convenient, you can walk across campus in five minutes. The dorms are average college dorms. Pine Hall, Gay Hall, and Independence Hall are the typical first-year dorms and they are typical residence hall living. Green Prairie houses both first-years and upperclassmen and it is a newer building with nicer accommodations. Spooner and Blakely are the upperclassmen halls with typical accommodations. The on-campus apartments are a nice option for students who want to be more independent while still living on campus. The Morris website has good information about all of the living arrangements. The social atmosphere depends on the building in every case, also on the year. Spooner typically has a studious environment, Independence Hall tends to be a fun first-year hall, Pine tends to be very close as a building, apartment residents typically keep to themselves. The housing process is fairly easy.
Athletics are not a very big deal at Morris. Our football team isn't a winning team and not many students attend the games every weekend. Other student-athletes are try really hard to go to everyone else's games and support their friends and student athletes, but students that are not athletes don't care as much about athletics. Our athletic facilities for student athletes are very good. There's a remodeled weightroom, two athletic trainers, two gym spaces, a track, a pool, and a lot of outdoor space to practice. For non-athletes there is another weightroom that is shared with community members, but it isn't lacking in much besides free weights. I'm a student athlete and I've never had a problem with professors about missing classes for games and they're willing to work with athletic schedules.
The University of Minnesota Morris is a great school academically. It is not for slackers which gives is one of the things that I like about it. Most of the students are there because they want to learn and succeed in their careers. The professors are very knowledgeable and willing to meet with you during office hours for help on whatever you need. The campus is small but beautiful but located in a very safe small town so safety is never an issue. Morris does't have much for restaurants, shopping or parties so if these things are important to you I would look else where.
