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. You will be notified of your room assignment via email once it is made. 

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. If you would like to view or manage your meal plan, visit GET.  

Packing Guidelines

Our packing guidelines provide everything you need to bring, and everything you should leave at home.
