Incoming Students Spring 2024
First-year, Transfer and Graduate Students
Welcome home to Residence Life! After you have been formally accepted to NDSU, your next step is to apply for on-campus housing. Apps open September 1, 2023.
First-year students are required to live in a residence hall and select one of two unlimited access meal plan options. For the 2023-2024 academic year, a first year student is defined as an individual who receives a high school diploma in January 2023 or later. Learn more here about NDSU's on-campus living requirement.
Transfer and graduate students are able to apply for a residence or an apartment, and have a variety of upper-level student meal plan options.
Spring 2024 Residence Hall Application
Step One - Claim your N.D. University System Account
In order to apply for housing, you must use your claimed N.D. University (NDUS) system account. Not sure if you have claimed your NDUS account? Click on the link to verify: http://claim.ndus.edu
Step Two - Apply for Housing and Select a Meal Plan
After claiming your N.D. University System account, use it to log into the NDSU housing portal within Campus Connection. This step requires a $100 room reservation fee, which is fully refundable until May 1 as long as you provide notice of cancellation.
Spring room assignments will be made the first full week in December. You will receive your assignment via NDSU email. It will also be posted to the NDSU housing portal within Campus Connection.

Spring 2024 Apartment Application
Apply for both! Because NDSU Apartments often hold long waitlists, many students will also apply for a residence hall. This secures housing and provides the opportunity to live on campus until their apartment is ready. To do this, follow these steps.
- Apply for an NDSU Apartment
- Make sure to check the box to indicate you also want to apply for a residence hall!
- Check your email. You’ll receive a link to the residence hall application with no application fee. This can take 1-2 business days.
