Our Campus

Immerse yourself in the culture, creativity and caring of Aveda Institute Minneapolis. Step inside and see how many inspiring opportunities are waiting for you.

Our Neighborhood

We are the original Aveda Institute located in Northeast Minneapolis, just across the river from downtown. Northeast is home to a thriving arts community and many boutiques and casual eateries. The Institute is housed in a beautiful five-story historical building dating back to the 1920s. The Aveda Institute brings a bit of beauty to the neighborhood with its classic architecture.


Upon entering the Institute, guests are welcomed with a warm smile and a cup of Aveda’s beloved Comforting Tea. As they wait for their services, we offer personalized Rituals of Renewal. These sensory experiences help set us apart and give our guests an additional moment of wellness and calm.

Grand Atelier

We host many Aveda Institute Minneapolis events in our beautiful auditorium. On any given day, you may find fashion shows, guest speakers and even graduations taking place behind our doors.

Experience Centers

We offer complimentary Aveda rituals in the Experience Centers on our first and third floors. The rituals combine aroma, breath and touch to show each guest the Aveda difference. Our third floor Experience Center is a calmer space for guests to relax and unwind with a cup of Comforting Tea before and after their services.

Esthiology Suites

You’ll get hands-on practice in our Esthiology suites. Your guests will relax in a tranquil environment while you create their customized service and address their needs.

4th Floor Lobby

Our fourth floor lobby is calming and quiet. Guests who are waiting for a massage therapy service can focus on feelings of serenity in the beautiful historic interior.

Massage Therapy Suites

In our massage therapy suites, you’re given a “real-life” setting to perform services while your guest enjoys a peaceful environment.
