Getting ready to move to campus

Moving to college is an exciting adventure, especially as a freshman living right in the heart of campus. You will meet lifelong friends and increase your connection to the university through involvement in academic, social and extracurricular activities. You will be within walking distance to class, dining and coffee shops. 

Here’s what you need to know as you prepare to move in.

Every residence hall has its own unique amenities and features, but all of them offer printing stations, onsite mail, coinless laundry, cleaning supplies, cable and free video streaming services, recreation and study lounges, a community kitchen, Wi-Fi and secure, keyless card entrances.

Before you move to NDSU, you can review your residence halland room assignment.If you want to connect with your roommate, you can view each other’s contact information in Campus Connection. 

“Communication with your roommate prevents the doubling up of appliances and the overflow of items in your room,” said engineering student Ethan Couser. 

If you will be parking a car on campus during the school year, a valid parking permit is required.  They are now available for purchase online.If you don’t have a car, no problem. Check out the MATBUS system and the Great Rides Bike Share offered on campus.

NDSU also has plenty of places to eat. We have three dining centers for you to enjoy a quick meal or snack on your way to class. NDSU dining has been upgraded this summer. Changes include a full West Dining Center remodel with a smoothie bar, clean-eats station with foods free of the top eight allergens, fresh bakery and other options.  Meal plans are available to purchaseon the NDSU Dininghomepage. NDSU Dining also has six specialty eateries located in the lower level of the Memorial Union. 

We’ve got plenty of coffee options, too.  NDSU Dining has five full-service coffee shopswhere you can get all of your favorite coffee drinks plus a variety of pastries, sandwiches, salads and soups.

“Our halls and campus come alive. Upperclassmen students come together to help the new students start off strong with a supportive team helping them to move in, show them around campus and welcome them to the herd,” Mark Malisey, Weible Hall director.

NDSU Move-In Day is Saturday, Aug. 24.
