Are you looking for a place to stay for the summer? BHSU Residence Life has you covered.

Summer Housing at BHSU

  • Summer housing begins May 16, 2022, through August 19, 2022. 
  • There are options to stay for individual sessions aligned with the summer academic calendar, or you can stay for the entire summer.
  • Space is limited.
Black Hill State University (BHSU) has limited access to Residence Halls in response to the National and State Declarations of Emergency due to COVID-19. While we will make every attempt to meet student summer housing needs, we will also adhere to the Center for Disease Control, South Dakota Health Department, and University guidance. 

Students must have an active student ID AND meet one of the following criteria in order to be eligible for summer housing.

  • Individuals who need to remain on campus for academic purposes which include but are not limited to:
    • Summer school classes
    • BHSU summer research
    • Academic-related internships.
  • Students registered for the current summer term or the immediate following fall term.
  • Students employed on the campus of BHSU.
  • Incoming students who are successfully admitted to BHSU and are registered and complete the earliest available New Student Orientation (NSO) to their move-in date.*

Students must also be in good financial standing with the Institution. 

*Priority is given to current BHSU Students. Applications will be placed based on the sessions selected.  Applicants who select session IV will be placed for that session, regardless of another session(s) selected. If an applicant received an assignment and has incorrectly selected a session, they may re-submit a new application. Placement is not guaranteed in this situation. This may affect availability.

Summer Housing rates:

  • Double occupancy: $400/month
  • Single occupancy: $425/month *

*Amount may be prorated depending on the month and lease start date.

Additional Information:

  • BHSU utilizes the Yellow Jacket Apartments for summer housing.
  • The Yellow Jacket Apartments are partially furnished and are a 3-person, 2-bedroom unit. There is a chance for one or two roommates in the apartment.
  • BHSU does not offer a meal plan option during the summer.

Students that do not have a signed Housing Contract and campus living assignment for Fall 2021 will be required to move out by July 31, 2021.

Summer Housing is currently full as of April 8, 2022.  If you wish to be placed on a waitlist, complete an application.
