Summer Conferencing

The South Dakota Mines 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. Learn more about our location in the Black Hills.

South Dakota 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, fitness center, dining facilities, lodging for 500 people and so much more.
