Parent Housing & Meal Plans


Student housing is available both on and off campus. On campus housing includes residence halls, suites and apartments. Although freshmen are not required to live on campus, new international undergraduate students are encouraged to live on campus in order to meet other students and get involved with activities and organizations on campus. A separate application for housing must be made by May 1 to guarantee a room on campus. Students must bring their own bedding. More information about on campus housing can be found at:


Meals from the Residence Hall Dining Center (RHDC) are included for students in residence halls and suites. A variety of meal plan options are available for purchase by apartment and off-campus residents who wish to eat in the RHDC. More information can be found at:

Off-Campus Housing

Off campus housing is independent of the University. Many off campus appartments are located a short bus ride from campus. Bus routes and schedules for traveling to and from campus can be found at Students can search the available listings at:, as well as the Duluth News Tribune at

Most off-campus housing is not furnished. Appliances (stove and refrigirator) are provided, but laundry facilities are not available in all off campus appartments. Laundromats are located nearby.

Students who live off campus usually must purchase some new or used furniture, such as desks, beds, table and chairs, and provide their own bed sheets, blankets, towels, and cooking utensils. Students will be responsible for cleaning and therefore must purchase cleaning equipment and supplies, like vacuum cleaner, broom, and cleaning products. Those who do not keep u with household chores are not eligible for a refund of the husing deposit when they leave the apartment. The housing deposit is usually equivalent of one or two months' rent.
