Why Live on Campus?
National and UND Research Proves that Residents Get Better Grades
Residence hall students have a higher grade point average than students who live off-campus (freshman through senior year).
Friendships that Last a Lifetime
Living on campus provides a unique opportunity to meet people and make friends on a daily basis. Many of these friendships last beyond the college years.
Whether you live in a residence hall, University Place or campus apartments, you are steps from everything on campus - dining, wellness center, labs, academic buildings and entertainment. Why drive and find parking every morning when you can live close-by to all you need.
Safety of our students is a primary concern at UND. All outside residence hall doors are locked 24 hours a day. Residence hall students are issued an outside door key for their hall only, and visitors must be accompanied by a hall resident. Residence hall room doors are equipped with dead-bolt locks and peep holes. Campus apartments and University Place have controlled access buildings. A safety escort service is available on-campus as well.
No Hidden Costs
Living in the residence halls and University Place means all utilities, computer network and Internet access, cable TV, and movie channel are included in one payment per semester. Depending on which apartment building you live in, different amenities are covered in your rent.
Save time and money. Plus fewer parking hassles.

Support Network & Learning Outside the Classroom
The UND residence hall staff is comprised of people dedicated to fostering the out-of-classroom education and life lessons for all hall students. They are highly-trained individuals who provide support for students when they need it. University Place staff are Community Assistants who offer assistance to upperclass students also. In the apartment community, the Resident Managers is a resource for residents in each complex area. Our RA staff provides programming that makes our residence hall students better students and citizens; see topics below:
Civic Engagement: Students will develop democratic citizenship skills. They will leave with a sense of civic/community responsibility. From the experience of living within our communities, they will understand the need to be responsible for unacceptable practices. They will learn to live and work with some formal and informal rules, protocols, and enforcement mechanisms.
Cognitive Complexity (Critical Thinking): Students will experience different opportunities with conflict, decision making and developing the ability to incorporate/connect knowledge to other knowledge, ideas, relate to different situations in daily life, and utilize life skills in lifelong learning and career decidedness.
Persistence and Academic Achievement: Manage the college experience to achieve academic and personal success; academic goal success includes degree attainment.
Humanitarianism- Diversity: Students will be exposed to differences, living with individuals with differences in outlook, religion, sexual and affectional orientation, differences in class and background, race, and national origin. This exposure will increase students’ knowledge and tolerance.
Humanitarianism- Advocacy (Community Service): Completing a service project is an excellent way for students to gain experiences in building relationships with diverse populations, exploring careers and developing references, learning about national and community issues, and improving communication and interpersonal skills.
Our housing staff hosts special activities designed to enhance the interaction among residence hall students and apartment community members. These events range from fun activities to group discussions of current social and educational issues.
Great Meal Plans
While first year students in the residence halls have two unlimited plans to choose from, upper class students in the residence halls may choose from unlimited or block meal plans. Residents in University Place or campus apartments are always welcome to purchase any meal plan offered by Dining Services.
