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:
Live Better— Wellness: This category focuses on the individual's personal growth. It includes all of the dimensions of wellness, specifically emphasizes emotional, social, intellectual (non-academic focused), and physical. It also includes education and awareness for alcohol, other drugs, and healthy relationships. From the old programming model this would encompass critical thinking and many social programs.
Learn Better—Academics: This category focuses on an individual's success as a student. It includes study sessions, tutoring, and other topics designed to help students be more successful academically. Many occupational and intellectual wellness topics fit well in this category. From the former programming model this would include academic programming.
Be Better—Citizenship: This category focuses on an individual's commitment to their community. It includes civic engagement, community service, and diversity programming. Many environmental and spiritual wellness topics fit into this category.
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.
