Augustana College is a residential campus with a three-year residency requirement. The college places a high value on the time students spend living on campus and considers residential living to be an important part of the educational experience. All full-time students are required to live on campus with the following exceptions;

  • Students entering their fourth year of college life
  • Students age 22 or older by Sept. 1 of the current academic year
  • Student who have been granted commuter status by the Office of Residential Life
  • Students who have received written permission to reside off-campus by the Office of Residential Life, the Student Policy Committee or the Dean of Student Services

First-year students

Beginning June 1, 2014, 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.

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

Move-in day for first-year students is Thursday, Aug. 21.

Current students

Students who have secured housing will be able to view their placements by logging onto Augustana's housing assignment system. Students who did not secure a placement should be sure to complete the housing contract and rooming preferences so that Residential Life may best match them with a roommate.

Move-in for returning students is 8 a.m., Sunday, Aug. 24.

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 30, 2014. 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.
