Why Live on Campus?

You have the rest of your life to adult. Living on campus allows you to focus on being a student. 

Make Minot State your home away from home and live on campus. 

  • All inclusive. Where else can you live and easily access a gym, cafe, free entertainment, and friends? With the Wellness Center, Beaver Creek Café, MSU Life, athletic events, and more, grab someone on your floor and explore all Minot State has to offer.

  • Make new friends. Expand your circle and meet people from around the world. Living on campus creates easy connections with others going through similar life experiences.

  • Short commute. Save yourself the hassle of driving to campus and finding a parking space. Sleep in and still get to class on time.

  • Someone else cooks & cleans. At the Beaver Creek Café, there is always a wide variety of foods to chose from and in the halls we have staff that clean the bathrooms. 

  • Get that high GPA. Students who live on campus tend to earn higher grades than their peers who stay off campus.

  • Stay safe. Security service is provided on campus 24/7.

  • Flexibility. Want to continue to live with your friends but have someone else cook and clean? Why don't you take over a floor with your friends? Craving a little more freedom and want to live in an apartment? We have those, too!
