Welcome to Augustana University!  We are excited to have you join our campus community and take part in all campus life has to offer.

First-year and transfer students will begin their Augustana journey by participating in the fun activities of Welcome Week.

We're looking forward to Move-In Day 2023. Information for 2023 will be updated on this page throughout the coming months, so check back soon!

Early arrivals

Students who need to arrive before residential communities open for the fall semester must be approved through the Student Affairs office. Students who are part of a campus organization, sports team or other large groups will have their early arrival details arranged with their advisor, coach or supervisor. Individuals who wish to request an early arrival should fill out the early arrival request form on their portal under the housing & dining tab. Note: We will not approve any individual early arrival requests for dates prior to Saturday, Aug. 20.


All on-campus students are assigned a campus mailbox, located in the Morrison Commons. Students will receive their mailbox information after moving in. Packages can be picked up in the Nelson Service Center. Below is an example of your Augustana University address:
