Housing and Dining

(Housing and Dining Services)

The mission of the Housing and Dining Services department is to enhance the University experience by providing exceptional housing and dining services and programs.  As a campus community, we believe these programs set the foundation for student success at UND. Students learn and reinforce skills which foster citizenship, generate a sense of belonging, and build community.

Residence Halls

All first-year undergraduate students are required to live in a residence hall on campus for their first, full academic year. Exemptions to the live-on requirement may be considered. Students living in the residence halls are required to purchase a meal plan.

Living and Learning Communities

Residence hall students may choose to be part of a housing community where students who share similar interests live together, enroll for similar courses, and learn together. Living Learning communities provide unique opportunities for students to participate in activities intended to provide interaction with faculty and extend learning beyond the classroom. Visit the website at http://und.edu/student-life/housing/residence-halls/living-learning.cfm  for more information about available Living Learning Communities.

Room and Meal Plan Agreement and Rates

Residence hall room and meal plan agreements are for the entire academic year (fall and spring semester) or summer session. Students will receive a copy of the agreement through the online application process. The agreement will provide information regarding important dates and refund policies for the year in which students are applying.
