Summer Housing

Spend your summer in Sioux Falls!

Augustana University is able to offer summer housing for Augustana students enrolled in traditional and online courses, students who are employed by the University during the summer months, or non-Augustana students completing internships with local businesses and organizations.

Rate Information

Augustana University is able to provide students with air-conditioned housing within a designated residence hall*. Each student would be provided a room with a bed, mattress, desk, desk chair, dresser, wardrobe, and individual climate control for their room. Two restrooms are located on each floor, as well as a “day room” (lounge) specific to each floor community.

Single Rooms - $500/mo.

Depending on availability, students may have the option to request a single room. Rooms may be furnished with one or two sets of furnishings (furnishings must remain in the room).

Double Rooms - $400/mo.

Students electing to share a double room will be expected to live with a roommate throughout the summer. Students can provide the name of their chosen roommate prior to arrival, or will be placed with a roommate for the summer.

* Students assigned to Theme Houses and Apartments for the 2018-2019 academic year may request to live in their assigned space during Summer 2018 as well, though these assignments are subject to availability given maintenance or other needs. Students not assigned a Theme House or Apartment for the 2018-2019 academic year are eligible for residence hall placement only.


Each student living in campus housing during the summer will be provided access to Augustana Dining Services during their stay at no additional cost. Students will be provided:

  • 20 meals each month (June and July) to use in the Dining Room for breakfast, lunch, or dinner options (schedules will be provided once housing assignments have been confirmed);


  • $25 Dining Dollars each month to be used in The Huddle for snacks, drinks, and other retail items.

Schedule of Availability

Summer Housing will be available primarily during the months of June and July. Though exact dates will vary from year to year, students can expect that housing will open on the Sunday before the start of Augustana’s first summer academic term (Summer Session I) and will close the Saturday following the completion of the second summer academic term (Summer Session II).

Summer Intern Housing at Augustana

We work, first, to provide housing for current Augustana students engaged in academic or University-related employment experiences. However, when space is available, Augustana University is able to offer summer housing opportunities for students from other colleges and universities who are in Sioux Falls for summer internships at local businesses (Sanford Health, Raven Industries, Midcontinent Communications, etc.).
