Points of Pride
Living on campus is one of the best decisions a UND student can make. Housing and Dining Services staff members are passionate about creating positive communities that facilitate learning and balance an engaging co-curricular student life.
Great things happen when a strong sense of community takes hold!
Here's why so many first-year students live in the residence halls:
- Friends and activities
- Low cost
Every year we conduct surveys to find out what we are doing well and what we can do better. Residents are sent individual surveys regarding residence hall housing, apartment housing, dining services, facilities and IT. Housing participated in the 2012-13 ACUHO-I/EBI Resident Assessment.
Living on campus develops life-long skills and residents are telling us they learn valuable lessons outside of the classroom. In response to the question:
"Living on campus has enhanced by ability to..."
95.1% - Live cooperatively
94.0% - Improve communication skills
92.5% - Meet other people
92.5% - Benefit from interactions with residents from different ethnicities
93.1% - Solve my own problems

In the fall of 2013, the Aviation community saw an increase of 50% in the number of students living in that community and the Engineering community increased 30% in student participation.
