Incoming Students

Congratulations on your admission to NDSU! We would like to welcome you home to NDSU and Residence Life! One of the first steps you need to do after admission, is to apply for on-campus housing. You are encouraged to submit your housing application after admission to NDSU even if you have not made your final college choice at this time (applying for housing does not formally commit you to NDSU). 

Step One - Claim System ID

In order to apply for housing, you must use your claimed System ID.  Not sure if you have claimed your new System ID? Click on the link to verify:  http://claim.ndus.edu

Step Two - Apply for Housing

  • After claiming/verifying your System ID, use your North Dakota University System credentials to log into your housing portal.  
  • Please do not use an iPad to apply. Make sure your browser is set to accept pop-ups during the application process.

Step Three - Receive Assignment

Assignments are made once per week, based on availability of open spaces. Once you're assigned, you'll be notified by email and details about the assignment will be viewable in your housing portal.

Important Notes
  • You must be admitted to NDSU prior to applying for housing.
  • All first-year students are guaranteed housing through the Department of Residence Life.
