Residence Hall Move In
8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. | Saturday, August 19, 2017
Your Room Assignment
After the first round of room assignments are made in June, rooms are assigned throughout summer. Watch your email or check Campus Connection. Roommates may change due to students deciding not to attend UND or other circumstances.
Students who need to arrive before the residence halls open must sign up and have their arrival approved.
Before you Arrive
- Pack things to bring for your room - see What to Bring.
- Get a computer ready. If these updates are completed prior to arriving on campus, you'll quickly connect to the network.
- Install all operating system updates (Windows, Mac).
- Ensure that anti-virus software is installed and up-to-date. Instructions for self-setup are located at ResNet.
- Check out ResNet for free computer support.
- Visit with your roommate (their email address is listed in your room assignment email and in Campus Connection). Read the Roommate Agreement and be ready to review with your roommate.
- Get familiar with Campus Connection.
- Learn how laundry works. It's included in the room and meal plan rate, so you don't need to bring quarters!
- If you bring a car, purchase a parking permit. Lots are assigned according to the residence hall where you live. Permits are available for online purchase in Campus Connection.
- View the Stop Drop & Go map for move-in day. There are locations in front of every residence hall where you can pull up your car, unload your belongings, and receive assistance moving in.
Arrival on Campus
- When you arrive, go directly to the hall where you are assigned and park in the Stop Drop & Go zone. Volunteers will be at each hall to assist with moving belongings to rooms.
- Please bring a photo ID and you will receive your room key at the time you check-in.
- After you check-in and get your keys, you can begin moving your items into your room.
- Rent a UND refrigerator - don't reserve ahead, pick up when you arrive. Rental refrigerators are 3.3 cubic ft. and are charged to your UND account ($25/semester). You may bring your own refrigerator up to 5.0 cubic ft.
- Bed sheets and linens. Purchase sheets that are guaranteed to fit. Orders are shipped directly to the student's home.
- Carpet is available to purchase and it will be delivered directly to a student's room. Choose from a variety of colors and carpet is sized to fit each room. Deadline to order is August 4, 2017.
- Care packages/Welcome kits. Choose from a wide variety of options that are delivered throughout the year to students. Families can include a personalized message.
- Set up a phone line (optional through Telecommunications for a fee, rooms don’t include an active line).
- Midcontinent Communication offers upgraded cable services (movie packages, sports packages and equipment upgrades) for residents in Walsh Hall, Bek Hall, Fulton Hall, Noren Hall and Selke Hall. Basic cable TV is provided in every hall, so any upgraded service is the financial responsibility of the student.
Postal Mail & Mailing Address to Halls
There is daily mail pick-up and delivery at each service center (except Sundays and holidays). You and your roommate will share a mailbox and the box opens with your room key. Mailboxes are located at the service center closest to your hall. The Post Office requests that mail be addressed with all capital letters and no punctuation when addressing. Do not use the word “Room” use only the number/letter. Your mailing address is also listed in your room assignment email.

Room and Board Payment
Semester room and board payments are due with tuition and fees on the first day of class. Paying online via Campus Connection using E-check is the fastest and most reliable method of payment at UND. Contact Student Account Services at 701.777.3911 with questions.
Student ID Card - U Card
New students will receive their ID card (U Card) during Orientation. Bring a government issued photo ID (driver’s license or passport) with you. You will also get your fingerscan completed for entrance into the dining centers.
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. To voice such concerns or suggestions, ARH encourages residents to speak with hall government members, hall staff, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Dining Services gladly will make your student’s birthday a day to remember with an individual size birthday cake and short personalized message. Parents, family members or friends may order a cake for any student on a meal plan (one cake per student). Please order at least one week in advance with the online birthday cake order form. The cake will be available for pick up at the student’s dining center.
While we understand you may want this cake to be a surprise, Dining Services staff would appreciate you telling your student that they can expect a cake at their dining center.
Tips for Families
- We suggest you work as partners with your student, but let the student begin to take responsibility and be the primary contact for issues that may arise.
- Deadlines are important for housing and for academics. Check websites and encourage your student to stay organized.
- Ask your student how they are getting involved in activities. Valuable “out of class” learning opportunities can be found all over UND and they allow your student to meet peers as well as make connections with faculty, staff and administrators.
