An area that is often recommended for off-campus housing is the Como neighborhood, a swath of modest (sometimes dilapidated) bungalows and tall, skinny two-stories. This neighborhood is home to Joe's Market and Deli at 1828 Como, one of the Twin Cities' last family-owned neighborhood groceries. The perks of an academic community-lectures, concerts, the University Film Society are easily accessible to people living nearby, and the University's Weisman Art Museum, on the East Bank, is the riverfront's most significant architectural landmark. University of Minnesota's Dinkytown, between 8th Street and University Avenue on the East Bank, is the main campus commercial district. It has plenty of cheap places to eat and many businesses named "Gopher'' (for the University of Minnesota mascot). Bob Dylan (known locally as Robert Zimmerman from Hibbing, Minnesota) played at the ''Twelve O'clock Scholar'' here in the early sixties.
Limited University-operated housing is available for families (with or without children) at two complexes: the Como Student Community at 1024 27th Avenue Southeast, 612-378-2434, and Commonwealth Terrace Cooperative on the St. Paul campus, 651-646-7526. These complexes feature excellent playgrounds and sponsor numerous activities for children. The intercampus buses serve both facilities, as does MCTO.
