Housing Information

As a Residence Life Department, we strive to create a clean, studious, hate-free environment that is conducive to learning and development outside the classroom, in addition to the learning students experience in their academics.  Rooms in these halls include furnishings (bed, dresser, desk and desk chair), as well as services such as broadband access to Internet, basic telephone service (dial tone and local service, long distance calls not included), basic cable service, free laundry facilities, and access to common recreation and study rooms.

Residence Halls
Dickinson State University maintains three traditional residence halls for approximately 300 students.  The majority of rooms are designed for shared occupancy.  However, based on space and availability, students may be able to have a shared room as a single at a higher cost.

DeLong Hall is DSU’s coed hall. Standing 6 stories tall, the building houses 200+ residents on all 6 floors, plus the ground floor. The hall is arranged in double occupancy rooms in “suite style” configurations with 4 rooms sharing a private bath. Four suites surround a lounge on each floor. In addition, the basement level includes a main lounge and kitchen. DeLong Hall is conveniently located near May, Stickney, and Klinefelter Halls. DeLong Hall tends to fill up quickly, so it is best to apply for housing here as soon as possible.

Programming
The Residential Life staff at Dickinson State realizes that you will not only learn a great deal in the classrooms of our University, but will also learn as much through your extracurricular activities. Hopefully you will become involved in clubs, organizations and activities that will help enhance your personal development. We feel very strongly that the programs offered in our Residence Halls offer a perfect opportunity to enhance your growth.

Residence Hall programs and activities will allow you to develop skills and knowledge that will assist you throughout your life. Everyone is strongly encouraged to participate in our wide array of activities. Some of these programs are designed to help build community, spirit and unity. Programs held over the past few years include human minesweeper, wish tree, scary movie nights, and the annual Spring Fling which includes inflatables such as jousting, sumo suits, obstacle courses, and awesome prizes! Other programs are designed to enrich and educate students on social issues of today. Some of these programs include important issues such as date rape, aids awareness, eating disorders, alcohol abuse, and women's health issues. We've even been known to do programs on current trends such as the health concerns of tattooing, the how-to on shaving your head, and tips on dying your own hair for fun. The Office of Residential Life strives to involve the entire campus in our programs and encourages all students, staff and faculty to come check out our wide array of activities.  We think you'll understand why we say Dickinson State Residential Life is a home away from home!
