Late Fall or Future Semester Move-In Application
If you are applying for move-in later in the fall semester or any future semesters for any unit type, you will need to complete an application to get on the waitlist. Submitting an application for the waiting list does not guarantee an apartment assignment can be made for a specific unit type. Assignments are processed based on the date an application is submitted for specific unit type availability. We work to complete assignments 60-75 days before your move-in date.
Before You Apply for Apartments
Prospective residents may apply for the apartment they desire before they are eligible, but must verify eligibility prior to moving in.
- Know your top three housing choices and explore the apartment options. You will be asked to list your top three preferences.
- Determine your occupancy date. You will be asked to list the date you wish to start your Lease Agreement and move in. This is the date that your rental obligation will begin and the date you start paying rent.
- Know the First Name, Last Name, Date of Birth, and UND ID Number, if applicable, of all other individuals who will be residing in your apartment. You will be asked to list this information on your application.

To be eligible to reside in University apartments, the Occupants must meet one of the following criteria. The eligibility requirements set out here are for University Housing purposes only and do not apply to other University program requirements. Written permission from the University must be secured before any other person is allowed to reside in the apartment. All Occupants who meet the Leaseholder requirements must apply and sign their own Lease.
1. Any undergraduate who has fulfilled the First Year Live-On Requirement for the residence hall community. Students who have fulfilled this requirement are defined as undergraduate students who:

Please note that the first year live on requirement requires students to live in the residence halls until the Saturday before finals week of the Spring Semester.

Undergraduate student Leaseholders must enroll in, maintain, and complete at least nine (9) credit hours each semester.

Apartment Assignment Process
All applicants are placed on a waiting list in the order we receive the completed application and the $60 non-refundable application fee.
- We begin trying to match you to an apartment about 60 days prior to your requested move-in date.
- The waitlist is sorted based on date of application as well as move-in date. The applications are sorted in two groups, those with a move-in date on the 1st - 15th of the month and then those with a move-in date on the 16th - end of the month. Once the applications are grouped by move-in date, they will then be sorted by date of application.
- If one of your apartment choices matches an apartment that is available, you will receive an apartment assignment letter. Assignment letters are emailed to your UND email address. Make sure to check your UND email address on a regular basis. You will only have 7 days to accept your assignment once it has been sent.
- If no match is found, you will receive an e-mail letting you know we were unable to make an assignment and given the option to modify your application preferences to include other unit types. If you do not want to expand your preferences, you will then be bypassed (maintaining your original priority number on the waiting list) and the next applicant is considered for assignment.
- This process is followed until all available apartments have been assigned.
- You will remain on the waiting list until you receive an assignment or you cancel your application.
