Perched on the north end of campus, Granskou Hall towers over the Augustana campus, providing great views of campus and the residential community to the north. As you enter this upperclassmen hall, you will be welcomed into a newly renovated, spacious, and brightly lit lobby, equipped with a pool table, several vending machines, and computer lab. When you’re ready to make your way to your room, hop on the smoothly running elevator to assist you with the upwards climb. Each room has space for two occupants, and is equipped with a wireless internet connection, cable capabilities, and climate control! When you find yourself with excess leisure time, make your way to the basement and utilize the recently renewed kitchen, catch the big game on the big screen television, or host your own ping pong tournament. There are also laundry facilities in the basement. While you wait for your laundry to dry you can take a whirl at tickling the ivories in the piano room right next to the laundry room.
Named for Augustana's 14th president, Rev. Dr. Clemens M. Granskou, Granskou Hall is an eight story upperclass residence hall. It is identical to and east of Stavig Hall. Granskou and Stavig Halls are often referred to as "The Towers." Major renovations, including new fire suppression systems, new lighting, carpeting and room furnishings, were completed in summer 2011.
Granskou rooms are 14' 5" by 9' 9" + 22" under the desk area. Rooms ending in 03, 08, 13, and 18 have been modified, possibly affecting lofts.
The furniture in Granskou Hall is modular, which means you can use individual pieces to customize your room layout. Check out this video for room arrangement ideas.
Granskou is staffed by 8 Viking Advisors (VAs) and one professional Hall Director. While you can usually find staff in the hall throughout most any day, designated VAs are required to be in the building and accessible to students every night after 7 pm. Staff can also be reached by calling the Granskou Hall on-call phone at 605.553.7687.
