Residence Halls

Augustana's six residence halls provide students with a rich community experience with support networks, creative programs and social activities.

All six residence halls are co-educational. Most floors or wings on residence hall floors are designated by gender 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. Gender-inclusive housing is available on the first floor of Tuve Hall and is open to all students.
