Hello and welcome to UND! Your student has made a great decision by choosing to live on campus!
Our residence halls provide students with a convenient location close to classes, libraries and labs, a wide variety of healthy and well prepared meals at the dining centers and retail outlets, an easy connection to new friends, and a supportive system to achieve academic success.
Current residents cite convenience as the major reason for living in the residence halls. Our programs and services are designed to supplement your student’s academic experience and help them reach their goals. Students who make connections and participate in campus activities develop skills to succeed and persist to graduation. UND and national research show that students who live in the residence halls have higher GPAs from freshman through senior years than those choosing other living options.
This website is a guide for you and your student and will help you to prepare for move-in day.
Family members, it's challenging to start letting go and allow your student to make their own decisions. Give them the tools and lots of encouragement. Your student has already made one great decision – to live on campus. Have a successful year!
