Residence Halls

residence hall

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.

As an integral part of the division of Student Affairs, the Department of Residence Life strives to create vibrant and welcome communities within on-campus housing facilities.

Aspire to make Residence Life a presence on campus where students feel safe, valued, included and empowered.
