Summer housing information

Augustana College's summer program was developed to provide safe, comfortable housing for student employees and interns studying and working in the Quad Cities. Our apartment-style residences, designed for older students, help eliminate the traditional housing-related concerns of interns living away from home.

If the information below does not answer your questions, call us at 1-800-798-8100, ext. 2686, or 309-794-2686.

Housing for interns

Interns will be assigned to the Anderson and Bartholomew apartments at 35th Street and 9 ½ Ave. You'll find a variety of stores and restaurants within 10 minutes of campus.

Anderson and Bartholomew are comprised of two units each containing four suites. Each suite contains four bedrooms.  We offer single and double bedrooms. Each suite comes with a full-service kitchen, a bathroom and an unfurnished lounge with a cable TV hookup.

Your room has windows with blinds. Furnishings in your room include:

  • Single, extra-long bed that can be configured into a twin or loft position
  • Extra-large desk with hutch
  • Padded desk chair
  • One three-drawer dresser
  • Overhead lighting
  • Internet/cable access

Room dimensions are available in Transitional Living Areas. We encourage you to personalize your room. (Note: You will be charged for any holes made in the room due to decorating.)

The extra-long mattresses are 36" x80".  You can find extra-long bedding at most major department stores including Sears, J.C. Penney's, Target and Wal-Mart.

Housing for student employees

Augustana student employees will be housed primarily in the 11th Avenue Flats or the Parkander Apartments. Please note that the Flats come with full-sized beds, not the extra long twin beds found in other residence halls.

After completing the online application, student employees can visit the Office of Residential Life to receive their specific room assignments. Students also will get information about moving to their summer assignment in May, and to their fall assignments in August.

Application process

Interns must fill out a short application. Interns working at other Quad Cities sites will be placed with other area interns, randomly. If you have a specific roommate preference, please let us know. Although the houses are co-educational, each suite is single-sex.

Single weekly  $153

Payments of cash or check are to be made in the Office of Residential Life. Interns will be asked to submit their first month’s rental payment at check-in. Students can have summer housing fees applied directly to their student account.

Check-in procedure

Starting on Monday, May 29, you may check-in during normal summer business hours, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. You will receive a packet that will include a room inventory form. It's important that you take the few minutes to fill out these forms as accurately as possible so that you are not billed later for existing damages.

Services

While many areas of the campus closed in summer, some are available to interns and guests. The Pepsico Recreation Center (309-794-7705), with a weight room, exercise equipment, tennis and racquetball courts and indoor track, is open limited hours in summer. The library has several computer workstations available for use. Brew by the Slough, with a variety of coffee and specialty beverages is open. It also serves pastries, sandwiches and salads. In addition, the Snack Bar in the Brunner Theatre Center is open at select times.

Mail is not delivered to individual campus buildings. Because the campus mailroom closes at 3 p.m. Monday-Friday in the summer, we recommend that your personal mail be sent to your employer. If this is not feasible, please contact the Office of Residential Life.

Ample, lighted parking is close by. It is free.

Community living policies

We expect you to be considerate of you roommates and neighbors. Courtesy hours are observed each weekday after 10 p.m. and on weekends after midnight.

Residents ask for the approval of roommates before inviting an overnight guest. Guest stays are limited to 48 consecutive hours.

Fire and safety regulations prohibit the use of some types of appliances. As a general guideline, appliances rated over 6 amps (700 watts), with the exception of computers, are not permitted. Small toasters and toaster ovens, and cookware with exposed heating elements are restricted to use in the kitchen.

You will be asked to complete a room inventory when you check in. You will be held responsible for any damages you cause and your employer may be notified of any unjustifiable damages. Residents of each suite will be held mutually accountable for all unassignable damages that occur. These charges will be divided among suite residents.

Cleaning

You are expected to keep the apartment clean throughout your stay, and are responsible for purchasing your own supplies. There will be a monthly health and safety inspection to assure that college guidelines are being met. 

Work orders

Work orders can be submitted online. Please include detailed information about the request and a contact phone number. Work orders can be submitted for a variety of issues including appliances andlighting, as well as any problems that may occur with insects or rodents. As much as we hope everything will remain working properly, repairs occasionally arise.

Laundry facilities

There is a coin-operated washer and dryer in each building. The cost is $1.25 per use. Please report any issues with the machines to the Office of Residential Life at 309-794-2686 or residentiallife@augustana.edu.

Residential Life staff

We provide live-in student and professional staff liaisons to address your questions, needs and concerns. A staff member will check and watch over your area. Staff members will orient you to our campus and the surrounding community, provide general information and assist with daily concerns. The Office of Residential Life is open from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday to respond to your questions and needs.
