Apply For Housing

You'll live in fancier housing someday, but you'll never have more fun than you do here. Some of the friendships you make in the Dakota College at Bottineau residence halls will last forever; so will the memories. You'll live close to the classrooms, the library, the gym, and the dining hall, making it easy to get immersed in the life of the campus.

And best of all, every room is equipped with cable TV and an internet connection. Do you really need anything else?

  • Each room in Gross, Milligan and Mead Hall contains desks, closets/drawers, beds and chairs.
  • Rooms are equipped with cable TV & internet access.
  • All residence hall students are on food service contract, i.e., 15 or 19 meals Monday through Sunday. 
  • Each hall has laundry facilities.
  • Mail is delivered to each room around noon of each weekday.
  • A parking lot is adjacent to each residence hall.

Requests for residence halls and roommates are honored on a first-come, first-served basis. Housing assignments are completed in July for the fall semester & in early January for the spring semester.

This license agreement may be terminated by Dakota College at Bottineau if you violate any of the residence hall rules or regulations or engage in other conduct which justifies your removal from the residence halls for the best interest of other residents and residence hall management.

By signing this agreement, I understand that Dakota College at Bottineau may consolidate or move residents into specific wings, floors, or halls within the system if occupancy in a residence hall or the residence hall is less than 100%. This means that initial hall assignments as received may be changed if occupancy in any or all of the residence halls is not at maximum capacity.
