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.
You are steps from everything on campus - dining, wellness center, labs, academic buildings and entertainment.
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.
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.
