What's happening to the St. Paul Study Center?

The location at 1337 Cleveland Ave N. will be temporarily closed while we focus our efforts on hospitality at Melrose Station.

What does the future hold for 1337 Cleveland?

We hope to expand our residential program, currently being piloted at River House on the East Bank, to St. Paul in the near future.

Will there ever be a St. Paul Study space again?

We hope so! We have plans to reopen some study space at the St. Paul location.

But when?

Look out for future news regarding the St. Paul location during the school year of 2023-2024!
