Student Housing with Residence Life

Whether it's the all night study sessions, movie night extravaganzas, unplanned cookie baking, or just having someone down the hall you know you can count on, living on-campus is the only way to get the true "college experience." With three residence halls on campus, South Dakota Mines ResLife provides ample opportunities to find a room that is just right for you. Even better, the Resident Assistants of the residence halls organize activities throughout the year ranging from Super Bowl parties to bowling nights to holiday decorating competitions. The halls also sponsor intramural teams, community service projects, and have also played an important role in the campus environmental sustainability program.

Current students can view their housing agreement online here. Current housing rates are listed here
