Mathew Living Learning Center

A hall for upper division students, the MLLC welcomes you to make this your home for multiple years during your time at NDSU! We have a distinct environment of individuals who come together to hang out in the lounges to play pool, chat at the desk, and have game nights in the classrooms, while respecting the want for many to have some quiet alone time in your individual bedrooms. We have plenty going on when you want to get out of your apartment, like grill outs in the court yard, craft nights in the lobby, and pizza and movie nights in the big classroom. While it is a lively and vibrant place to live, you can also count on the MLLC community to encourage and support one another on their academic endeavors.  

The MLLCs offer on-campus luxury living with fully furnished, apartment-style units and are conveniently located next to the Wallman Wellness Center. The MLLCs also offer:

Hall Director

Dallas Lancenese

Phone: (701) 231-3221 

What's up everyone? I am the Hall Director for the MLLCs and Niskanen Hall. I grew up about 50 minutes southwest of Chicago in Joliet, Illinois. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Business Management from Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois and my Master's Degree in Educational Administration and Leadership from the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, South Dakota. For fun, I like to play video games with friends, aimlessly drive around and listen to music, or just get outside and enjoy life. 

I enjoy being a Hall Director because I get to witness and assist with the development of students. I can never get enough of the random interactions I have or the new information I receive from my students who are in my building, from the teams I supervise, or just generally on campus. I couldn't see myself doing anything other than being a Hall Director.
