Residence Halls

residence hall

Augustana's six residence halls provide students with a rich community experience with support networks, creative programs and social activities.

We believe that living in community together in residence halls encourages students to learn from one another, to learn skills necessary to be a good neighbor, and to adopt values of citizenship that will serve them well beyond their time at Augustana. Gender-inclusive housing is available on the first floor of Tuve Hall and is open to all students.

First-Year Student Housing 

Sophomore, Junior and Senior Student Housing 

All six residence halls are co-educational. Most floors or wings on residence hall floors are designated by gender with common lobbies, lounges, kitchens and recreation rooms. Gender-inclusive housing, known as Flexible Housing at Augustana, is available in Tuve Hall. Entrances to the halls are secured twenty-four hours a day. Student life in the residence halls is guided by a code of conduct and carefully determined procedures designed to ensure that students have an enjoyable residential experience.
