Residence Life

Freshmen Housing Policy

University housing can provide both educational and social opportunities important to the success of students. Experience shows that students who live on campus are more likely to complete their degrees, are more involved with university activities, and graduate at higher rates than students living off campus. The purpose of this policy is to provide Minot State University’s first-year students the best possible start to their college careers.

To promote student success, Minot State University requires undergraduate students who have earned fewer than 24 semester hours and are under 20 years of age prior to the first day of the current semester, to live on campus, in our residence halls, and purchase a meal plan for the Beaver Creek Café, our on-campus, student dining center. The customized “all-you-care-to-eat” food venue will provide a comfortable, eclectic and open-air dining experience. Our residence hall and dining programs will help students meet other students, grow as a person, enjoy residential life, and have the experience of a lifetime on campus.

If you have any questions about this policy, please call the Student Life Office at 858-3363 or (800) 777-0750 ext. 3363.
