Off Campus Living

Making the move off campus is an exciting time in the lives of many students. As a South Dakota Mines student living in Rapid City, we hope you have a memorable and rewarding off campus living experience. This information was developed as a resource guide to assist you in utilizing the various resources off and on the campus. As a resident of the Rapid City community, we encourage you to identify your rights and responsibilities as a renter and to learn about the numerous resources available to you.
