New Students

We are excited to welcome you to our campus for the Fall of 2015.  Please take a moment to read below:

Housing Preferences, Contract, and Deposit

Beginning May 18, 2015, enrolled students will be able to create an account on Augustana's housing assignment system using their birth date and home zip code (international students should use last 5 digits). Students will fill out a housing application and medical form, and they will receive additional information about living options and roommate preferences.Students who know with whom they want to room will be able to indicate their preferred roommate at this time. 

All residents residing in campus housing for the academic year are required to submit a housing deposit of $150. This is a refundable deposit that the Business Office will retain until July of your concluding year in campus housing.  Deposits will be available for submission beginning May 18th.

Room and roommate information will be emailed to incoming students towards the end of July.

Special accommodations request

Any incoming student requesting special housing accommodations must submit a housing preferences and contract along with supporting documentation by the priority deadline of June 26, 2015. Documentation can be uploaded into the housing contract through or faxed to the Office of Residential Life at (309) 794-7152. Acceptable documentation must be completed by a licensed professional and state the desired need. Accommodation requests received after the priority deadline will be met as space allows.

Getting to Know your Roommate

Housing assignments will be sent to your Augustana email account mid to late July.  We encourage you to reach out to your roommate via email, facebook, etc to begin to get to know them.  

Asking questions similar to those listed below may aid with moving in and laying a strong foundation for your roommate relationship.

  1. Where are you from? What are your interests? What are you studying?
  2. What are you bringing to the room? (discuss items like refrigerators, microwaves, futons, televisions, things that may take a lot of space)
  3. Are you an early riser or night owl?
  4. What are your expectations for a roommate?
  5. What are you comfortable sharing?
