Residence Hall Move In
Residence halls open for fall semester at 8:00 am, Saturday, August 22, 2015.
Your Room Assignment
Residence hall room assignments continue to be made throughout the summer. Roommates do change over the summer due to students deciding not to attend UND or other circumstances. Check Campus Connection>MyHousing often to check your roommate status.
Students who need to arrive before the residence halls open for fall semester must have their arrival approved. Find more information at Early Arrival Information.
What to do before you arrive:
- Assemble things to bring for your room - see list What to Bring.
- Get a computer ready - see ResNet for help.
- 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.
- Decide on optional services you may want to purchase such as phone line, carpets or linens.
- Get familiar with Campus Connection.
- Learn how laundry works in the halls. It's included in the room & meal plan rate, so you don't need to bring quarters!
- If you bring a car, you need to buy a parking permit. Lots are assigned according to the residence hall where you live. Permits are available for online purchase in Campus Connection.
Arrival on Campus:
- When you arrive, go directly to the hall where you are assigned.
- Please bring a photo ID and you will receive your room key at the time you check-in.
- There will be move-in assistance from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, at the Stop Drop and Go location outside the main entrance of each hall. See map for more information.
- Drive directly to the Stop Drop and Go location. You will unload your belongings (you will be requested to have someone stay with your items while you go into the hall to check-in). Once you unload your car, you will be directed to the closest parking lot.
- 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 per semester). You may bring your own refrigerator up to 5.0 cubic ft.
- Our partner company, On-Campus Marketing offers several items that families may choose to purchase (listed below). A portion of sales is returned to UND Housing and given back to residents as scholarships.
- 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.
- Bed linens/bedding sets are guaranteed to fit XL-twin mattresses. Linens are mailed home to students over the summer. Many color and pattern choices are available to choose.
- Carpet sized to fit residence hall rooms is available for purchase. Carpet is delivered to the students room before they arrive on campus.
- Set up a phone line (optional through Telecommunications for a fee, since rooms don’t include an active line)
- Become a Facebook fan
- Give address to friends and family
