Residence Life

Our small town campus is cozy, friendly and fun!  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; and so will the memories. You'll live close to the classrooms, library, gym, Student Center and the dining hall, making it easy to get immersed in the life of the campus.
