Housing & Residential Life

  • Living on campus is affordable, convenient, educational and fun.

    It's an outstanding opportunity to get involved, meet new people and help ensure your academic success. For these reasons, first-year students are required to live on campus. Housing is first-come, first-served - apply today! Check out our online Guide to Living, Learning, and Dining at MSU Moorhead.

    Upperclass & Transfers
    We have many opportunities for on-campus housing for upperclass students. Most transfer students choose to live on campus because it’s the best way to become familiarized with your new campus. While upperclass/transfer students can choose any building, we have three buildings specifically for you: Nelson Hall Upperclass Singles, Holmquist Suites, and John Neumaier Apartments. We also have two Learning Communities for upperclass students: Rainbow Dragon in South Snarr and College of Arts, Media & Communication in Dahl Hall.
    Essentials included
    All residence hall rooms come with the essentials—desk, chair, closet or wardrobe, dresser, digital cable, Wi-Fi access and twin XL bed. From there, you can make your room feel like home!
    Free laundry
    All residence halls include study, community and floor lounges, laundry rooms, kitchenettes, vending machines, Internet and cable TV.
