Adding and Updating Google My Business (Maps) Locations on the Twin Cities Campus

June 7, 2022

The University of Minnesota uses Google My Business to add buildings, departments, colleges, and University-run venues and offices to Google Maps and Google Search results. We do not manage temporary locations, events, privately run businesses (food court restaurants, M Health locations), or student groups.

University Relations (UR) would like your assistance in consolidating primary ownership of Twin Cities campus locations under UR while distributing secondary ownership and management access to campus communicators to provide more up-to-date information for everyone interested in our campus. Fill out this form for assistance.

Adding/claiming a location

  • You need to be able to receive physical mail and/or direct phone calls without automated answering.
  • If it’s already claimed, University Relations will attempt to claim the location from the current owner. If that does not work, we will work with you to prove ownership through either phone or mail.
  • If you already own a location on campus, we would also like to work with you to centralize ownership while letting you keep owner/management rights. Please help by making urweb@umn.edu the Primary Owner of your location.
