FAQ: Residence Halls & Dining

A: Yes, the residential halls and dining services will be open. Many safety protocols have been developed and put in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. For information on residential halls and dining services visit https://www.minotstateu.edu/life/residence-halls/.

A: Yes, Minot State Residence Life is offering discounted single rooms for 2020-2021. We are making changes in our processes and facilities in response to COVID-19. Protecting you, your neighbors, and the campus community will require the full attention and daily dedication of every Beaver. Additionally, a collective commitment to the health and well-being of each other has never been more essential in an on-campus living environment.

One way we are working to support a healthy community is lowering the cost of single rooms.  There is guidance that utilizing a single room is another form of physical distancing and might well provide another dimension in the potential prevention of COVID-19. We also recognize many students prefer to live with a roommate. So, while we are not mandating the usage of single rooms at MSU this fall, we are encouraging them for those who are interested and providing an additional financial incentive.

We want all students to know that we hold their health and well-being in high regard and do not want cost to impede on their health options. The single room semester rate for 2020-21 will be $1600 for Cook Hall and McCulloch Hall, and $1891 for Lura Manor and Crane Hall. These 2020-21 rates represent an approximate discount of $750 per semester compared to the normal single room rates at MSU, and are just $250 more per semester than a double room.

Single rooms are not guaranteed and will only be available as long as there are open rooms and the demand for housing allows.
