Your Room Assignment

Residence hall room assignments are made on a rolling basis, depending on when you apply and make your housing deposit. Room and roommate information may change based on need. Check the portal for up-to-date room assignment and roommate information.

What to Do Before You Arrive

  • Assemble items to bring for your room — see our list of What to Bring.
  • Set up your Augustana email account. This will be Augie’s primary way of contacting you.
  • Visit with your roommate (their email address was listed in your room assignment notification - refer to your portal account.)
  • Decide which optional services you may wish to purchase such as lofts (Bergsaker, Solberg, East and Tuve 2nd and 3rd floors only)  or cable TV. These optional services may be added through your portal account. Remember, all residence hall rooms are equipped with a refrigerator/microwave unit and students living in campus housing will also have access to free laundry facilities.
  • If you plan to bring a car, you need to buy a parking permit. You can do this at the Campus Safety office located in the Commons.
  • Visit the portal to complete your emergency contact information and sign up for the emergency notification system.
  • Get involved! Browse Viking Central for information on clubs and organizations and upcoming events.
