Housing & Food


During the 2017 session citizens of Girls State will live in Selke Hall. Rooms are arranged in suites with two participants staying in a room, and two rooms sharing a bathroom. Elevators are available. The rooms are air conditioned but the main lounge areas are not and they can get stuffy; you may wish to bring a fan.

Please note that the twin beds have extra-long mattresses. Please read 2017 Packing List for additional information.

Students should report to Selke Hall on June 11th between 12-3 for registration.  Directions to the residence hall can be found on our check-in page.


Selke Hall is located in the Wilkerson Complex near Wilkerson Dining Center.  Wilkerson offers several menu options including “Dakota Homestyle”, Global Cuisine, Allergen Free, Wood Fried Italiano/Pizza, Gourmet Noodle, and Garden Greens. Visit the Wilkerson Dining Center page for more information. Their menu is posted online.
