Planning Your Trip

If you will require hotel accommodations during your visit, we recommend that you consider booking with Bartell Hotels. Owned and operated by an USD alumnus, Bartell Hotels offers discounted room rates to friends and visitors of USD and donates 10% of all total room costs back to the University in support of student scholarships. All eight Bartell Hotels are conveniently located near campus. To learn more about the special rates available to you during your stay, please visit or call call 800-345-9995. 

To prepare for your trip to campus, please review our driving directions and campus map. Make sure to enter campus via the West Entrance and park in the West Marian Way Parking Structure, which will be just ahead on your left. Check-in will take place in Manchester Hall, which is a short - but rather steep - walk up the hill from this structure. Should this walk pose any challenges to you or your family, trams are available to take you up the hill. Trams regularly pick up from the ground level of the parking structure.
