Residence Life Mission
Residence Life seeks to provide a safe environment that encourages learning and personal growth in an inclusive community
that empowers and challenges our residents. We continually strive to improve our services to meet the needs of our students
and reflect the high standards of South Dakota School of Mines & Technology.
Welcome New Students!
Welcome to our new incoming freshmen and transfer students! On-campus housing is required of all students who have graduated from high school in the past two years. Learn more about housing options, move-in information, and what you can/can not bring to campus by visiting our New Student Website.
If you are already thinking about room furnishings, visit the OCM Website. You can purchase linens and much more online and have everything delivered directly to campus! Each sale helps provide important funding for RA programming and resident events in our residence halls.
