NDSU Move-In Day is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 20.
Heading off to college is an exciting and memorable adventure, especially as an incoming freshman living on campus. You will meet lifelong friends and you’ll want to get involved in a host of academic, social and extracurricular activities.
You’ll also 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 special 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 hall and room assignment. If you want to connect with your roommate, you can view each other’s contact information in Campus Connection.
“I can’t wait to move in,” said Tatum Limke, an incoming freshman from Hillsboro, North Dakota, who will live in Cater Hall. “I matched up with my roommate and suitemates on ndsu.mycollegeroomie.com and we talk all of the time. Right away we created a group chat so we could talk about what we were all bringing. We snap, Facetime and have even hung out together this summer. We are all so excited to move in and really excited to live in Cater Hall.”
If you will park 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, the MATBUS system is a great way to easily move around Fargo-Moorhead.
NDSU has plenty of places to eat. There are three dining centers for you to enjoy a quick meal or snack on your way to class. West Dining Center includes a smoothie bar, clean-eats station with foods free of the top nine allergens, fresh bakery and other options. NDSU Dining meal plans are available for purchase online. NDSU Dining also has five specialty eateries located in the lower level of the Memorial Union.
In addition, there are five full-service NDSU Dining coffee shops, where you can get all coffee drinks plus a selection of pastries, sandwiches, salads and soups. Memorial Union is home to Caribou Coffee’s campus-favorite coffee, tea and treats. This fall, the Minard Coffee Shop will transform into a “We Proudly Serve Starbucks” location.
The move-in experience is my favorite time of year because campus comes back to life,” said Amolia Schumacher, Thompson Hall director. “Welcoming students to our halls means creating a new home and finding new people to bring into the Bison family. The support at NDSU for each student helps bring them closer to their personal and professional goals, and that begins the day they move to campus.”
