Residence Requirement

We guarantee housing for all full-time first year students, and require our students to live on campus for at least their first year.

More information about Augustana's residence requirement…

At Augustana, living in residence is a valuable part of the total university experience, and we have a room for you!


In addition to being close to classes, the chapel, the library and the cafeteria, Residence Life at Augustana offers you a way to meet other students, activities, and convenient access to professors.


The residence environment is specifically designed to promote the development of the whole person, so you’ll be able to concentrate on a number of different areas (like academics, a social life, meet new people, experience new cultures, play some sports, and have a place to hang out) within a couple blocks of where you sleep!

Through the programs we offer, student engagement, community involvement and the people that make up our community we hope that once you’re here you’ll never want to leave!
