Housing Expo

Housing Expo 2018 – February 12, 2018 – February 16, 2018

Housing Expo is the opportunity to decide where and with whom you want to live for the following academic year. At Housing Expo, you and your roommates add up your selection numbers and that number determines what day you can come and choose your housing! The higher the selection number, the earlier in the week you are able to choose housing. A selection number is a number between 1,000-9,000 that is sent to you via email at the beginning of 2nd semester.

Your selection number is based on your number of credits and class (First Year – Fourth Year). The more completed credits you have, the higher your selection number is. The Department of Residence Life will work hard to meet your needs, but please come to the Expo with a list of preferred roommates, if possible.

Don’t forget:

  1. Bring your student ID
  2. Bring a digital or printed copy of the email you will be receiving from Residence Life, which will contain your housing selection number and also indicates your allotted time slot for attending the Housing Expo. This email is sent at the end of January 2018.
  3. Complete the online contract. If you have not completed an online contract, your space can not be reserved.

An Anderson neighborhood is a group of 8 or 14 people who want to live together in a townhouse or floorhouse, respectively. Roommates get together based on student groups, areas of study, activities, or friend groups! For more information or to reserve your space, contact Eric Pegues, Assistant Director, at pegues@augsburg.edu.

Before Expo: Looking for roommates?

If you are looking for one roommate or eight roommates, please post information in this Roommate Search survey. Once you have completed the survey someone will give you access to view all other entries within a few days. Responses will be editable, so you can take down your posting or change it when you want to. Everyone is limited to one response and will need to be logged in to Inside Augsburg to access the survey.
Once you are given viewing access, go ahead and read the other entries! Feel free to use the posted contact information to reach out and decide if you are a good fit for next year.
We will post these responses during Expo week in the Urn/Mort Lobby to give you additional chances to find roommates. After Housing Expo Week, February 12-16 2018, this survey will close to ensure students aren’t looking at outdated information.
Other Resources:
1. Your RA, Community Specialist, and RHD probably know someone else who is currently searching for a roommate! Reach out and let them know that you are as well!
2. Come to Housing Expo! Stop by and talk to the staff and residents who are looking at housing. There will be opportunities, especially on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of Expo week to see who still needs a roommate.
