Jerde Hall - Historical

Jerde Hall was a four-story residence hall on NSU's campus. It housed its last student population in the Spring of 2018 and was demolished the following summer. It has held all male and co-ed housing. It was a place where many lifelong memories were made!

Jerde Hall is a co-ed, non-smoking hall that can accommodate 360 students and houses NSU’s convenience store. In the basement of the building there is a free laundry facility with 6 washing machines and 6 dryers. Also found in the basement is a kitchen area and a lounge with a ping-pong table. The main lobby can be found on the first floor along with vending machines, the hall office, large flat-screen TV, and two pool tables. There is a lounge and kitchenette located on the remaining 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors. Each of these lounges contain a flat-screen TV with cable, a microwave, and a toaster. There are many events and opportunities for all residents to participate in throughout the year.

Our Story

Jerde Hall was a co-ed, non-smoking hall that could accommodate 360 students and housed NSU’s convenience store. In the basement of the building there was a laundry facility with 6 washing machines and 6 dryers. Also found in the basement was a kitchen area and a lounge with a ping-pong table. The main lobby could be found on the first floor along with vending machines, the hall office, large flat-screen TV, and two pool tables. There was a lounge and kitchenette located on the remaining 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors. Each of these lounges contained a flat-screen TV with cable, a microwave, and a toaster. There were many events and opportunities for all residents to participate in throughout the year.

Jerde Hall housed its last student resident population in May of 2018. The final camp to be housed in Jerde Hall was Boys State. Now in its place is the South Dakota School for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

Jerde has had a history of being all male and co-ed. It once held the cafeteria until it was moved into the Student Center. Past students have shared memories of the mailboxes in the first floor lobby, making phone calls in the phone booths, and the day phones were in the students’ rooms.

Jerde Hall was a place were many met some of their best friends, and created lifelong memories.
