General Information: USD’s beautiful 274-acre campus in Vermillion sits along the bluffs above the Missouri River in southeast South Dakota. From the historic beauty of Old Main to the cutting-edge technology housed in the Lee Medicine & Science Building, you’ll experience a mix of the traditional and contemporary on the University of South Dakota campus. Since its inception in 1862, USD has called the small, safe city of Vermillion home. As both grow in size and population, the campus and the city continue to enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship that helps foster innovation and creates exciting opportunities for both students and residents. We may have been around since 1862, but we’re embracing the future through innovative research, flexible schedules and real-life learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
