Residence Hall Move In - Community
We are excited that you have chosen to live in a residence hall which is an academic and social community. You will find an environment to:
- Meet new friends
- Achieve academically
- Take care of yourself and your neighbors
- Learn life skills (like doing your own laundry!)
- Have a lot of fun
Relationships with a roommate and the residents in your hall are important. Having skills to compromise and understand other points of view will be important in your community. Hall staff are here to help with this transition; we know it can be tough. Resources are out there, you just need to ask.
Be ready to influence your community in a positive way that supports the academic pursuit of all residents.
Involvement & Leadership
The Association of Residence Halls (ARH) is the overall governing body that ties together and organizes UND’s residence hall community. The ARH office is located in Wilkerson Hall, Room 25. To voice such concerns or suggestions, ARH encourages residents to speak with hall government members, hall staff, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. ARH consists of student elected representatives who sit on one of eight boards listed below:
- ARH Policy Board reviews and hears requests for policy changes and formulates suggested policy changes for the residence halls. The committee is comprised of a president and vice president at large, the president from each hall, the president of the National Residence Hall Honorary, and the chairs of the boards listed below.
- ARH Programming Board’s main purpose is to plan social, cultural and awareness programs for the entire residence hall community.
- ARH Conduct Council is the student peer appeal board for conduct decisions from the residence halls. Representation on the Conduct Council is by election from each hall.
- ARH Budget Board is comprised of the treasurers from each of the residence halls. It is this board’s duty to administer and audit all ARH accounts. Each hall treasurer is responsible for organizing his/her hall's financial records.
- ARH Food & Facilities Board is in charge of allocating money to purchase items that are too expensive for a hall to purchase on its own. This board also provides feedback to Dining Services.
- ARH Integrated Media Board Representatives from each hall work to promote residence hall activities on Residence Life Cinema (RLC - Channel 17), pick movies for the channel and work with individual hall government web sites.
- ARH Wellness Board representatives works to communicate information regarding wellness programs, activities, and events in the residence halls and on campus.
- ARH Environmental Board partners with UND Facilities to encourage residence hall students to address issues of sustainability on campus, particularly in housing and dining services.
Each hall is individually governed by student representatives who take on leadership roles. Get involved by attending events or run for one of the positions listed below. If there is a vacancy in your hall government for one of the below positions and you are interested in becoming involved, please contact your hall government officers or hall staff.

NRHH awarded $6,000 in scholarships in last year
National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) honors those students who display outstanding leadership qualities in the residence halls. Total membership of NRHH does not exceed one percent of the total population of the residence halls. NRHH sponsors leadership building and recognition activities throughout the academic year.
