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). 

Applications for Fall 2021 will be available later this fall. Please check back in October for more information.

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

Applications for Fall 2021 will be available later this fall. Please check back in October for more information.

  • After claiming/verifying your System ID, use your North Dakota State University 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.
  • After you submit your housing application, a housing assignment will be made for you. 
Step Three - Roommate Selection

Learn all the ways you can find a roommate.

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.
  • If you qualify for an academic learning community, and space is still available, you will receive an email invitation to participate.
