Incoming Transfer or Graduate Students (Fall 2024)

Welcome home to Residence Life! After you have been formally admitted to NDSU, your next step is to apply for on-campus housing. 

Residence Halls and Apartments

As a transfer or graduate student, you are able to apply for a residence hall or an apartment. There are six main differences between our halls and apartments.

Learn more about their differences and all of NDSU's upper-division housing options


RESIDENCE HALLS: If you would like to apply for a residence hall, please follow the directions below.

APARTMENTS: If you would like to apply for an apartment, please click here.

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.

  1. Apply for an NDSU Apartment
    • Make sure to check the box to indicate you also want to apply for a residence hall! 
  2. Check your email. You’ll receive a link to the residence hall application with no application fee. This can take 1-2 business days.
