Fall 2020 Housing Updates


  • There are many uncertainties as we move through summer and into fall, but BSU is currently planning to offer student housing for fall 2020. Please stay tuned to your BSU email account for updates as we will provide them as soon as we can. You can apply for housing at any time following the application instructions. We look forward to seeing you this fall!
  • In the unlikely event that University housing is impacted by the COVID-19 virus and housing is unavailable for Fall 2020, the full prepayment will be refunded to all applicants.
  • All first-year students who live on campus will still participate in the FYRE Program in both Oak and Tamarack Halls and will be housed in single-occupancy rooms for 2020-2021.  Each resident will have their own room.
  • Returning residents that signed up for Birch Hall will also be housed in single-occupancy rooms. Returners in Linden, Pine and University Heights will be housed as they have been in the past.
  • If you have one or fewer in-person classes, and want to stay at home living with family this fall, please send an email stating your decision to cancel your housing contract to Housing and Residential Life at reslife@bemidjistate.edu.  We will cancel your contract and refund any prepayment for housing that you may have made.  Also, you can change your mind at any time and reapply for housing – we will have a room for you should you choose to live on campus any time in the future!
  • We are planning a Drop & Go process for Fall 2020 to continue our efforts of social distancing and keeping our students, their families and our staff safe.  We will also be offering some early arrival dates.  We will communicate our plans to you as soon as decisions are made!

Although there will be many changes this Fall, we want you to start getting excited to move in!  Check out how cool this room looks!  In Oak and Tamarack Halls, your room will have one bed lofted and one bed unlofted when you move in.  You’ll get to decorate all this space for yourself!  Please continue to check back often as we will be posting a video of a room very soon!
