South Dakota State University




Sometimes in event planning, it's important to switch up the normal routine and try something new. Attendees are used to the same four walls a typical convention center provides, but why not step outside the box and step onto campus.

South Dakota State University offers numerous event and conference spaces for any size gathering. The Student Union, in the heart of campus, provides customizable meeting spaces with restaurants right around the corner to satisfy any guilty food craving. The classrooms available are fully equipped with all the latest electronics to wow viewers with your visually stimulating PowerPoint presentation. With 272 acres of land-grant university space, the possibilities are up to you. 

Note: A conference interest form is available online to begin initial contact. Also, please be advised, rental rooms are not available on the weekends during the summer.
