Living on Campus: It's the Way to Go
As we start a new year, it's a good time to start reminding students to apply for residence hall housing at UND. We know you play a significant role in providing information to incoming freshmen and we want to provide you with the resources you need to help students make good decisions.
Benefits of Living on Campus
Living on the UND campus offers convenience and easy access to resources that help make students academically successful. UND research shows that students who live on campus:
- have higher GPAs
- take on less loan debt
Living on campus offers great locations close to classes, a variety of dining options, plus programs and events to get new students involved and meeting new people.
Living & Learning Communities
UND's Living & Learning Communities in Aviation, Engineering & Mines, Wellness, and Honors are unique opportunities to live with other students who share academic or personal areas of interest. Students find that it's easier to be academically successful when they live with others who attend the same classes and participate in the same activities.

Students should follow these steps to apply for Fall 2014 housing:
