Welcome to Residential Life

Living on campus is one of the most memorable experience of four years at Augustana--from move-in day and getting to know your roommate, to being part of the community in your residence hall, to moving into a Transitional Living Area (a.k.a. TLA -- an apartment, townhome or house) as a junior.

Augustana's campus is residential, which means most students live where they learn: on this 115-acre wooded, hilly campus in the Quad Cities along the Mississippi River. As a senior, you will be prepared to make the transition into off-campus housing in the neighboring community.

If you live in Seminary Hall, you may be able to look out your bedroom windows and see the fully cast fossil of Cryolophosaurus ellioti in the Fryxell Geology Museum. If you live in Westerlin or Erickson, you can head to the PepsiCo Recreation Center without your coat--or just use the new AugiePlex in Westerlin. And if you move into a Parkander TLA apartment on the ridge as a junior, you'll have more independence, but still be able to see the lights of the Tredway Library and The Gerber Center reflecting in the Slough at night.

Except for a few commuters, all Augustana students, including transfer students, live on campus for the first three years. Augustana offers a variety of residences--from historic House on the Hill, to the modern layout of Swanson Commons, to Focused Interest Houses for groups devoted to special interests.
