Housing information for new students

Living on campus is one of the most memorable experiences of a student’s time at Augustana. The following steps and timetables will let you know what to do and when.

1. Complete the housing application starting May 1, 2018

Start at housing.augustana.edu.

If you need special accommodations in housing, please complete your housing application and the request form for special accommodations and submit your medical documentation by June 30.

Augustana students live on campus for three years. However, those who have a local permanent address can request to commute from home.

2. Pay your housing deposit by June 30

All students residing in campus housing for the academic year are required to submit a housing deposit of $150. This will be refunded in July of your last year in campus housing.

Make your housing deposit

3. Watch your email for your housing assignment

By mid-July, the Office of Residential Life will share your residence hall, room number and roommate information via email.

4. Plan to move in on the morning of Aug. 16

Watch your mail for your assigned arrival time from the Office of Residential Life. If you have questions about housing, email Residential Life or call 309-794-2686.

Those with a room ending in an even number, should plan to arrive between 7-9 a.m. Those with a room ending in an odd number should plan to arrive between 9-11 a.m.

When students arrive they will receive their room keys, mailbox keys and student IDs. We will have volunteers on hand to help carry belongings.

(Students who need to arrive early for athletics or other reasons will be given an earlier date.)

Early unloading

To help alleviate congestion on Thursday, we are offering a limited number of early unloading appointments the evening of Wednesday, Aug. 15.

Staff will be available to unlock rooms, but we will not issue keys to students on Wednesday night.

To sign up for early unloading, call the Office of Residential Life at 309-794-2686 by Friday, Aug. 10.

Open house Aug. 4

The Office of Residential Life will host a new student open house from 10 a.m.-noon on Saturday, Aug. 4. 

You will have the opportunity to preview your future home. This is a great chance to finalize room arrangement plans and perhaps meet your roommate(s).
