Lock It In: Secure your current space – closed

This year we are giving residents the opportunity to secure the space they are currently living in for the academic year of 2017-2018. We are calling this Lock-It-In and it’s a special offer to apartments in Anderson, Mortensen, and Luther.  All apartments are being sold for 2017-2018 at their full capacity given the size of our first year class (e.g. no 1/1, 2/2, in Mortensen Hall and ⅔ in Anderson).

In order to Lock-It-In you must:

  • Submit the Lock-It-In survey – THIS SURVEY IS CLOSED as of 5:00pm on 2/10/17
  • Be currently enrolled at Augsburg College
  • Be registered for 2017 spring semester classes
  • Have all the beds full when you sign your contracts at the Housing Expo
  • One person in the space who is staying from 2016-17
  • Note: Only a certain number of each apartment style will be reserved and the reservations are first come first served based on when the survey was completely and correctly filled out.

2017-2018 Apartments are offered in the following configurations:

Luther

4 bedroom 4 person.
2 bedroom 4 person.
2 bedroom 3 person (with a maximum).

Anderson

2 bedroom 4 person.

Mortensen

2 bedroom 4 person.
2 bedroom 3 person (with a maximum).
1 bedroom 2 person.

If you are in an apartment with a different location, you may still be able to Lock In that specific apartment, just in a different configuration. All unsecured apartments will be included in the Housing Expo: February 13th-17th

 

Anderson Neighborhoods

Interested in creating an Anderson Neighborhood? 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, athletics, or friend groups! For more information or to reserve your space, contact Anderson Residence Hall Director Gayle Smaller at smaller@augsburg.edu.
