Life in the Residence Halls

Students having fun in the residence halls

Living on campus offers many advantages and has been proven to enhance students’ success, which is why South Dakota State University has a two year live-on requirement.

Campus housing is home to over 3,700 residents. All unmarried, full-time students within two years of high school graduation must live on campus, unless exempted, space is no longer available or they are living with family.

Advantages of on-campus housing includes:

  • Convenient location to classes (for more on that, check out this video).
  • Community Assistants on every floor to help with your transition to SDSU.
  • Full-Time professional staff in each hall.
  • The ability to develop lasting friendships and make lifelong memories.
  • Opportunity for involvement in student life.

Our halls are your home away from home and we want to make your experience at SDSU unforgettable!
