Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

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.

Residence Halls

#DormLife

It's the hallmark of a university experience. And we're all about making yours as supportive (and fun!) as possible. We find that students who live on campus have greater academic success and get more involved with the campus community. So we're committed to offering you ways to do both.

Halls of fame

Every residence hall and apartment complex is unique. They each have their own layouts, traditions, and diverse mixes of students. We'll assign you a dorm room and put you in touch with your new roommate prior to move-in. That's when the fun begins.
