First Year Student Housing Policy
Minot State University would like to encourage the best possible start for students with their college experience. Compared to students that live off campus, experience shows that students who live on campus are more likely to:

  • become more involved with on campus activities
  • perform better academically
  • graduate and complete their degrees
  • become a more active alumni member after graduation

All first year undergraduate students at Minot State University who have earned less than 24 semester credit hours and are under 20 years of age must live on campus in our residence halls and purchase a required meal plan during their first year here. Exemptions to this policy may be granted when any of the following circumstances exist where the student:

  • Is commuting from parents/legal guardian or family member's residence within 25 miles of MSU
  • Is registered only for distance education courses
  • Is married and living with spouse and/or has dependent children under their care
  • Is a veteran of military service or active duty personnel
  • Has a disability requiring specialized accommodations

Students who live within the 25 mile radius of Minot can try living on campus until October 1. If at that time they chose to move home they can complete the exemption form and will only be charged for the time stayed.

All requests for exemption from this policy must submit a Request for Exemption [pdf] form to the Residence Life & Housing Office by July 1 for the Academic Year contract and November 1 for the Spring Semester contract.


As a member of the Minot State Residence Life community, you will receive a safe, vibrant, and inclusive community to live and learn in. Your rights and responsibilities can be found in our Residence Life Community Handbook.

All students, regardless of where they live, are bound to the Minot State Code of Student Life.


The apartments are available to all students who do not meet the first year live-on requirements

Apply in person at the Housing office or request an apartment application by emailing: msu.housing@minotstateu.edu. Application process is not done online through Campus Connection.
