The stadium village area of prospect park
Arguably Prospect Park's most traveled area, Stadium Village is a year-round destination for tens of thousands of Twin Cities residents and regional visitors who attend events at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium.
Stadium Village sits at the eastern edge of the University of Minnesota and includes the residential and commercial districts north and south of SE University Avenue. Here you'll find U of M student housing, college facilities, and the most extensive array of student-focused businesses and services this side of Dinkytown. Stadium Village is distinct within Prospect Park for having very few permanent, long-term residents or single-family homes.
TCF Stadium (also known as "The Bank") is a 50,000-seat arena that opened in 2009. It hosts University of Minnesota football games and other collegiate sporting events. The stadium also hosted NFL Minnesota Vikings home games during the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 seasons as the team awaited the construction of its new stadium in downtown Minneapolis. Several mega-concerts are staged at the stadium each year.
