Currently reservations are accepted through US Postal Service mail or by fax and online. Reservations are initiated with our BHSU Rally Week brochure. You can apply online or download the PDF form. If using the PDF form, fill it out and mail or fax to the address below. Requests must be returned with payment in full (either check or credit card).
Instructions to complete the reservation form:
- Complete the name and address block on the form, indicate your planned arrival date and approximate arrival time and departure date and approximate departure time, and please list phones and email contacts for yourself.
- Indicate how many people in your reservation and how many rooms you are requesting. (By order of the fire marshal, rooms are limited to a maximum of 2 people.)
- In the room preference block, you can indicate your favorite room or list any accessibility issues or special requests you would like us to consider in your room assignment.
- Provide your signature in the block which authenticates your information and indicates agreement with our policies.
- In the block option section, select the block which fits your arrival and departure dates (review block dates and charges)
- The appropriate rate for that block will appear on line 2 (remember to subtract your discount from the rate if you qualify for our Loyalty Discount).
- Indicate the number of rooms you are requesting on line 3.
- Line 4 will automatically multiply line 2 (rate) by line 3 (number of rooms), and then it will calculate the tax by multiplying line 4 by 0.085. Finally the form will add line 4 and 5 for the Total Amount Due on line 6.
Checks or money orders are accepted if you are mailing your request via the US Postal Service.
Enclose a check for the Total Amount Due, made payable to Black Hills State University and mail to:
