Campus Life

Northwest Technical College is located in beautiful Bemidji, Minnesota - the first city on the Mississippi River. NTC is more than books and classes - it's a warm learning environment on a beautiful, modern campus. Bemidji is a nature lover's paradise. It's near several state parks and forests, including Itasca State Park, Lake Bemidji State Park and the Chippewa National Forest. Plus there are 400 fishing lakes within 25 miles.

Northwest Technical College has a unique partnership with Bemidji State University, giving NTC learners access to campus life services and activities. You can live in the BSU dorms and access the meal plans, health services and recreational activities. BSU is only 10 minutes away. This unique relationship is the only one between a 2-year and 4-year college in Minnesota. Get the best of both worlds here - a taste of university life, plus the focused, technology-based education at a much lower cost.
