Connolly Hall

Built in the 1940's and housing 150 students, Connolly Hall is the oldest residence hall on campus at the South Dakota Mines. Renovations of the building were completed in December 2009 and July 2015 giving students all the modern amenities expected today. Connolly houses freshmen and sophomore residents in double rooms and sophomores in a small number of single rooms. Connolly features wings with common bathrooms, large community lounges with kitchens, and community laundry.
