Residence Life


Learning Communities

Our learning communities have specific focus areas designed to empower students to connect closely with peers with similar interest. Students in these communities live on the same floor in order to share academic and social learning experiences.

Students can see connections between classroom and out-of-classroom learning; network with faculty and staff; and work together toward common goals. Each learning community strives to empower students to become engaged global citizens. 

Academic Learning Communities

Students in academically focused communities interact through co-enrollment in courses each semester as identified by their college. They also have opportunities to participate in activities focused on their area of study and community development.

The following Learning Communities are connected with Colleges across campus. Students majoring in programs within these colleges are eligible for these communities.  

Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences 



Health Professions

Human Development and Education 


Special Interest Learning Communities

Special interest communities allow students opportunities to build friendships with peers who have similar interests or values and strive to learn and grow from those around them.

Transfer, International, Exchange Student Community

The TIES community is our only learning community designed for our upper division students. Students intentionally connect with peers from a diverse array of backgrounds while specifically addressing the needs of experienced students transferring to NDSU.

Wellness Community 

The Wellness Community focuses on the Seven Dimensions of Wellness and invites students who value substance free living.
