Hello Class of 2024 –
We are 18 days away from the Orientation Convocation & Pinning Ceremony!! We are so excited to have you joining us in our law community.
- Emergency Broadband Benefit – the University asked for us to share the following information to students:
The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) is offering the Emergency Broadband Benefit to help keep households connected during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program will provide a discount of up to $50 per month towards broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price.
Students who received a Pell Grant during the current award year meet the eligibility requirements. The entire details of the program can be found here: https://www.fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit.
- Early Move-In – If you are residing in an on-campus residence hall, you will need to request an Early Move-In date. You can do this through the Housing Self Service. There is more information here too - https://und.edu/student-life/housing/residence-halls/move-in-early.html
- Books – Please make sure you are following the excel booklist we have provided to you. This spreadsheet will indicate if a book is required or recommended. There has been some conflicting information when students have tried purchasing books, so please follow the spreadsheet.
- Parking Permits – Permits are available for purchase and must be used starting August 1, 2021. Here are some common questions I get about parking permits:
- What type of parking pass should I get?
- There are different types of parking permits – Campus Housing Permits for those who reside in a campus residence hall, On-Campus Housing Apartment Permits for those who reside in a campus apartment, Student Parking Permits, and Ramp Parking Permit
- If you are an “off-campus” student – meaning you do not live on the UND campus, you may choose a Student Parking or Ramp Parking option.
- Between the Student parking and the Ramp parking, it’s truly up to preference. The Ramp parking is covered and they only sell a set number of permits for this to ensure everyone can park in the ramp. The Student lots are often a Student/Staff combination and parking is first-come, first-serve. I do not believe student parking permits sell out.
- Closest parking to the law school?
- The ramp is indicated on the attached map (East of the Memorial Union)
- An “S” lot is North of University Ave by Archives Coffee House, the Nursing building, and South of Columbia Hall.
- Will I need a parking permit?
- This may depend. Some rental properties offer transportation to and from campus at various times throughout the day/week. Also, the city transportation may be a better option for you. The important thing is to pick what works best for you.
- You can buy a parking permit at any time so if you aren’t sure, feel free to wait.
- Not a question but something to note – There is also Passport Parking as an option for vehicles without a UND parking permit. These are metered spaces you can park in and pay for time as needed. More information on Passport Parking is here - https://campus.und.edu/transportation/parking/permits/
To view options and prices, use the link below. Towards the bottom of the page, it gives instructions in how to purchase. A key thing to remember is you will need your NDUS.Identifier login information to purchase a permit. Also, you will need vehicle information to enter for your permit – make, model and license plate number of your vehicle(s).
Here is a full campus map with a key for parking permits – https://campus.und.edu/transportation/parking/map.html - I have attached another map which shows all parking close to the law school.
