Want to live with students who have similar interests? Or live next to students who have similar majors? Learning Communities are simply groups of students who live together in our high rises and connect through shared academic or personal goals. Each community is different, but all offer the opportunity to make friends and achieve goals important to you. 

Why live in a learning community?
  • Ability to develop close-knit relationships and friend groups
  • Your neighbors have a similar interest or major as you do
  • Amazing networking opportunities with faculty and staff
  • Fun events designed specifically for your learning community
  • Between 60-70 people per community
Learning community options:

Applications are due February 28. 2022.


  1. Complete your NDSU Housing Application
  2. Complete your Learning Community Application
  3. Once applications are complete, learning community applications will be reviewed. Students admitted to learning communities will be assigned a room. Students assigned to learning communities will not need to take part in room self-selection.  

Feel free to direct all questions to Carol Jergenson, Assistant Director for Residential Education.
