Housing Expo

Housing Expo 2019: February 11-15, 2019

Housing Expo is the opportunity to decide where and with whom you want to live for the following academic year.  Before Expo, students receive a selection number based on the number of credits they have, so the more completed credits you have, the higher your selection number is.  At Housing Expo, you and your roommates add up your selection numbers and that total number determines what day you can come and choose your housing. 

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 2019.
  3. Complete the online contract. If you have not completed an online contract, your space can not be reserved.

before expo: Anderson Neighborhoods

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! If you are interested in living in a neighborhood, fill out the Anderson Neighborhood Interest Registration.

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 After Housing Expo Week, February 11-15 2019, this survey will close to ensure students aren’t looking at outdated information.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.
