  • Life at MSU Moorhead

    Living on campus at MSU Moorhead is affordable, convenient, educational and fun. It’s an outstanding opportunity to get involved, meet new people and establish new friendships. And it’s a great way to help ensure your academic success. Research shows that students who live on campus achieve higher GPAs, are more likely to graduate and report higher overall satisfaction with their university experience. For these reasons, first year students are required to live on campus.

    When you live on campus, you’re just steps away from classes, study groups, social gatherings and athletic events. Living on campus is the part of university life that’s not held in a classroom, but teaches you just as much. The people you meet, the relationships you form and the experiences you share will have a positive impact on your college experience and beyond.
