Preparing to Move In

Welcome Home to NDSU Residence Life. 

Here are some of the most important things to know as you prepare to move in!

Move-In Days & Early Drop Off
NDSU Move In will take place over several days, in addition to offering an entire week for early drop-off. Learn more and sign up for your time slot! 

Amenities and Features
Every hall has its own unique amenities and features, but all halls offer the following: printing stations, onsite mail, coinless laundry, cleaning supplies, cable and free video streaming services, rec lounges, study lounges, community kitchen, wifi, hall office with games/videos/entertainment options, and secure keyless card entrances.

Beds, Linens and Lofts 
Each hall is unique. Learn more about your hall's mattress size, lofting system and custom linens.

Bookstore Delivery 
The NDSU Bookstore is offering residence hall delivery for online orders. Order your books and supplies by August 12 and select ‘Residence Hall Delivery’ as your shipment method and they’ll take care of the rest. Easy. Convenient. Secure.

Care Packages
In a partnership between OCM and NDSU's Residence Hall Association, you can send your student Care Packages for every college milestone. Is there a birthday coming up? Are finals wearing them down? You can also choose from two fantastic Bison Care Package Plans. Proceeds go to support our students in the halls!

Driving Directions
Turn off your GPS! For move-in day, we provide specific driving directions, drop-off areas, and parking lots for each residence hall. Information about driving directions will be released by the end of July. 

FAQs 
We encourage you to reach out to Residence Life with any questions you have! You can also check out some of our most frequently asked questions.

Hall/Room Information
Your hall will be your home away from home. Check out everything it has to offer, including its unique features and amenities. A 360 degree tour of the building, plus room renderings, room photos and floor plans (room measurements) are also important to view. All of this and more can be found by visiting your specific hall’s webpage.

Meal Plans and Dietary Needs
One of the best parts of living on campus is the amazing food provided by NDSU Dining! If you have food allergies or dietary sensitivities, inform the dietetics team of your needs. They will reach out promptly with information about the resources available on campus and to answer any questions you have.  

Packing Guidelines
Our packing guidelines provide everything you need to bring, and everything you should leave at home. Avoid buying then lugging a fridge or microwave to your room - rent it from CSI! Not only will it save you money, they will deliver to your room prior to move-in! 

Room and Roommate Assignment Information
To review your hall/room assignment or to view your roommate's name and email address, log on to Campus Connection, select Self-Service, then On-Campus Housing. Follow the prompts to the main Housing Portal Dashboard where you will be able to view housing messages, room assignment, roommate info, and meal plan.
