Welcome to the Alpine Village at Mesabi Range College!
Alpine Village consists of three apartment style residence halls with eight student apartments in each. Each of our semi-furnished apartments have four bedrooms, two bathrooms, laundry room, kitchen, and living room. Your bedroom includes a bed, desk, and chair. Your kitchen includes a full-size refrigerator, microwave, stove, and dishwasher. Your living room is furnished with a couch, tv stand, coffee table, and end table.
Most of your neighbors will have their own room and share the bathrooms and living space with three roommates. If you would like to share your room with another student, we do offer double occupancy for a discounted rate.
Alpine Village is conveniently located within walking distance to every class on the Virginia campus. It is situated in the heart of Virginia, Minnesota with grocery stores, banks, clinic, shopping, and dinning all within one mile from your front door.
