Residential Life

Home sweet Augustana. Most students live in a residence hall or apartment on campus for their first three years. Your residence hall community will foster your learning and help energize your day-to-day life. This is where you'll relax and recoup while you're busy creating the next big thing.

The connections you make in your first-year housing are just the beginning of friendships you'll value for the rest of your life. Check out our Tiny Tours for an inside look.
