Housing Information

Housing for Students Required to Live On Campus
Residence Life offers housing to all freshmen and sophomores required to live in campus housing.  In accordance with South Dakota Board of Regents policy, all students who graduated from high school in 2021 or 2022 are required to live on-campus during the 2022-2023 academic year. Please explore this section to learn more about housing options available.

Housing for All Upperclass and Graduate Students
Residence Life offers rooms in Rocker Square I and Rocker Square II for all students who graduated high school prior to 2021 on a first come first served basis. We anticipate upper class housing has been in high demand for the 2022-2023 year and are required to house all '21-'22 high school graduates. If the Rockers are at capacity  and there are available spaces in traditional halls, additional housing may be available after new student placement but is not guaranteed.  Please explore our housing pages to learn more about upper class housing options.
