Most students, including transfer students, live on campus for their first three years. As seniors, they're prepared to move into off-campus housing.
Building your skills as a successful adult and citizen, you'll see important connections between your education and daily life. This growth is something only a residential campus can inspire.
Augustana offers a variety of residences, from historic House on the Hill to the modern layout of Swanson Commons.
Residential life here focuses on what students experience in daily life, depending on their year.
For more information, email Residential Life or call 309-794-2686.
Your living experience will help you connect with friends and mentors, and feel at home at Augustana. First-year students who want more of a themed community living environment may choose one of two Residential Learning Experience (RLE) options or the Healthy Living Community.
Residence hall programming will relate to life goals, as you look inward to discover what you should do with your life, and who you want to be.
