Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

IT Living Lab

The IT Living Lab performs testing on technology hardware and software solutions to figure out if the solutions can be used within a collegiate campus environment.

Dakota State’s Information Technology Services (ITS) will collaborate with DSU faculty and students on various projects to determine the viability of different technologies within a collegiate campus environment.  In partnership with the PATRIOT lab, IT Living will also provide a test bed and showcase for in-home and commercial connected devices.
