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 College.
All six residence halls are co-educational. Floors or wings on residence hall floors are designated by sex with common lobbies, lounges, kitchens and recreation rooms. 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.

Student Room Furnishings
While student rooms also vary a great deal across campus, basic furnishings are standard to each area. In your room, you will certainly find:
- Two Single Beds
- Refrigerators may be used in individual rooms if they do not exceed 4.0 cubic feet. There are several merchants in town who will rent refrigerators. Microwaves are not permitted in student rooms, except as part of rental units available from the College.
- Limited parking is available on campus. A lottery determines which students receive campus parking permits. Those not receiving permits can park on residential streets that surround the campus. Contact Campus Safety at (605) 274-401 for more information regarding parking and permits
- In Bergsaker Hall and Solberg Hall, the twin bed mattresses are 36" x 80". Extra long twin size sheets are recommended.
- Students may bring carpeting for their room, however, foam or kanga-back carpet poses a fire risk and is therefore prohibited.
