Should you decide to stay with us, BHSU will house you in our residence hall rooms. Rooms are approximately 12’ x 14’. Each is furnished with two long-length twin beds, two dressers, a desk, a chair, and a sink. Each also has one or two open-fronted closets. View our residence hall rooms. Every room also includes a fan since the rooms are not air-conditioned. Most common areas are air-conditioned.
Room capacity is limited to 2 people. An adult aged 21 or older must accompany anyone under the age of 18. Accessible rooms are available on the first floors since elevator service does not exist in any hall. If accessibility is needed, please state your request for an accessible room on your reservation form.
Linen (bedding and towels) is also provided for each person. Each person in the room receives two sheets (either two flat sheets or one flat and one fitted), one light blanket, one pillow, one pillowcase, two bath towels, and two washcloths. Towels and washcloths will be exchanged for clean daily; please bring towels and washcloths to the registration desk in your hall by 9:30 each morning. Blocks A and B will not receive an exchange of sheets and pillowcases. Block C guests will receive two exchanges of sheets and pillowcases during your nine-night stay; please bring your sheets and pillowcases to the registration desk (with your towels) on Sunday and on Wednesday. Please bring all your linen to the registration desk in the lobby of your hall when you check out.
Each guest will also receive a souvenir BHSU bath towel to take home with you. Please feel free to use them during your stay with us, but please do not bring them to the desk to be exchanged. We do not have enough of the souvenir towels to exchange them for you.
Community bathrooms (complete with toilets, sinks, and shower areas) are located on each floor. Bathrooms are designated by gender and are equipped with separate stalls for toilets and showers.
We do ask you to keep your expectations of us reasonable. In exchange for a reasonably priced room, you will receive friendly hospitality with a warm welcome and a comfortable place to stay – but we definitely aren’t the Ritz!
If you are wondering, almost all the rooming proceeds go directly to physical improvements of the residence halls. Our guests and our resident college students benefit from your dollars.
We are currently seeking permission from the South Dakota Board of Regents and the State of South Dakota to build a new residence hall facility. Current plans envision a 200-bed facility placed near Heidepriem and Thomas and, yes, it will be air-conditioned. Wish us luck with our request to the Board and the State!
