Do you want to live on campus?

Current students interested in living on campus should complete either the Women's College or Graduate Student/SOP Housing & Board Agreement and the Housing Intent form by February 16, 2015 at 5pm. Forms can be submitted electronically to residencelife@ndm.edu or to MBK 215. Students interested in participating in a Living Learning Community for the 2015-2016 academic year should also complete the Living Learning Community Essay. Housing assignments are selected by students either on Living Learning Community (March 3rd at 12:15pm) or Traditional Housing Selection Day (March 5th).

Assignments are made based on the date that the completed housing application and deposit are received. Students who submit a late Housing Application will not be eligible to participate in a Living Learning Community and will be placed at the bottom of the Housing Priority List based upon the date and time the application is received. First Year students should submit their housing applications by May 1, 2015.

Break Housing

Both residence halls on campus will remain open during Thanksgiving, Spring, and Easter Break for no additional cost. Students will receive an email 2 weeks before the break and will be asked to complete a form notifying the Office of Residence & Commuter Life prior to the Monday before the break if they will be staying on campus. The Residence halls close according to a schedule listed in the Student Handbook for winter break at 5pm on December 22, 2015 and will reopen on January 1, 2016 at 9:00am.   

No housing is provided during the week between Christmas and New Year's Day. Residents who request to arrive to campus early in August have the option of volunteering on Move-In Day (August 22, 2015) or will be charged a $25 per night early arrival fee.

Disability Support Services Accomodations

If you have a medical need for a particular room assignment, you will need to update the documentation on file with the Office of Disability Support Services.

All documentation should be submitted to the office of disability and support services before a decision can be made regarding your request for special housing accommodations. Special housing assignments must be approved each year. 

All room rates as well as due dates for residential housing are distributed in the spring semester for the following academic year.  Please make special note of the room rates for each type of room.  All returning students will receive this information via NDMU e-mail in the spring semester. Returning students should pay particular attention to due dates for housing requests.

Living Learning Communities

NDMU will offer four (4) Living Learning Community (LLC) options for upperclassmen students during the 2015-2016 year. LLCs are communities where students are able to live together in a cohort with their peers who share a common interest in culture, academics, or community service. The LLC program is a collaborative initiative between the Division of Student Life and the Division of Academic Affairs.

  • Civic Engagement (Upperclassmen Only): Students in this LLC will be able to connect with their peers around civic engagement through giving back to the local community.
