Summer Conferencing Services

The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology is a state university providing undergraduate and graduate degrees in science, engineering and interdisciplinary sciences. Located at the foot of the beautiful Black Hills in Rapid City, South Dakota's second largest city, the campus is 20 minutes from Mount Rushmore. Rapid City has a relatively mild climate and the Black Hills offer numerous opportunities for summer and winter outdoor experiences.

SD Mines is an ideal location for meetings, summer camps, and conferences. The picturesque campus, with its central quad, variety of trees and mix of architectural styles, provides several large meeting rooms, swimming pool, fitness center, dining facilities, lodging for 500 people and so much more.

We invite you to consider us for your next conference, summer camp, or special event where you will receive attention to detail and personal service. Call us to arrange a visit or to inquire about specific date availability. Our professional staff looks forward to working with you to make your next event a success.

Students doing internships in the Rapid City area are welcome to stay on-campus at the School of Mines from May 13 - August 15.  If you are currently a student at another SD BOR institution, your room rent will be applied to your student account - if you are coming from outside the system, we will send you a Summer Conferencing Services agreement (contract).
