Living on campus

Applications for new students are now available online. Additional information will be included in the Admitted Student Packet.  If you have any questions about housing, please contact the Department of Residential Life at (218)755-3750 or email reslife@bemidjistate.edu.

The typical process for applying to live on campus:

First, you will be notified that you need to create a housing application. During the application period, you will be able to go online and create an application. It involves the following steps:

  1. Enter the information about your roommate preferences
  2. Choose options for the type of room you are interested in (you can identify certain buildings, room types, floor gender options, or learning communities)
  3. Based on your selections, you will be given a listing of types of rooms that match your preferences. You will be able to rank them in order of preference. While this doesn't guarantee that you will get a room that you desire, it improves your chances.
  4. You will be asked to agree to the terms of the contract.

Second, after applying, you will be asked to make a prepayment. You cannot be assigned a room until a prepayment is made.

Third, the housing staff at the campus will assign you to a room. You will be able to view the room assignment online including roommate information.

Fourth, prior to the start of school, you will be asked to select a Meal Plan.
