U Student Welcome Packet: University of Minnesota students - Welcome to the neighborhood!

The Como neighborhood (also called Southeast Como) is named after Como Avenue, which runs through the neighborhood. Como Avenue took its name from Lake Como in northern Italy, a popular tourist destination. Como neighborhood is in the University community, about one mile north of the Dinkytown commercial area and the east bank campus of the University of Minnesota. Its boundaries are the city limit to the east (33rd Avenue SE), the Southeast Industrial Area to the south of Elm Street, Interstate 35W and the Burlington Northern main line to the west, and East Hennepin Avenue and Winter Street NE to the north. The housing stock consists of modest early 20th-century bungalows and Victorian and 1920s-era homes with a scattering of newer duplexes and single-family homes. Many of the larger homes have been converted into student housing. Como has an elementary school, three churches, a mosque, Van Cleve Park and small retail stores.
