Summer Housing


Campus housing will be available this summer for Augsburg students, current residents and 2016 spring graduates!

All residents living on campus over the summer must be current Augsburg College students enrolled in courses for the Fall 2016 semester, or are Spring 2016 Augsburg College graduates.

Your summer rate may be reduced due to your enrollment in one or more summer courses through Augsburg College, or by your participation in research supervised by Augsburg faculty, involvement in URGO, or McNair.

How Summer Housing works:

-The first step is to sign the Residence Life Summer Contract and return to your current Hall Director’s mailbox in the Residence Life main office. Find your Hall Director here

-Current academic year Augsburg students/residents may stay in their space after the last day of spring 2016 finals, and will move to their summer space on the date given to them by Residence Life. These dates will be provided in mid April.

All residents must be available to move to their assigned summer residence starting May 2, 2016 through May 16, 2016. This will be the time frame during which residents move into their Mortensen Hall space.

And between June 27 and June 30, residents will be asked to move to a Luther residence for the second half of the summer contract period. We apologize for this inconvenience, but it is necessary to ensure that all residences are ready for you and others in the fall when the majority of students return to campus housing.


Filling out and signing the Summer Housing Contract

*In order to sign a Residence Life summer housing contract, you must be either a current Augsburg student who is, or will be, enrolled in classes for the fall 2016 semester, or you must be an Augsburg graduate from the class of spring 2016.

If you are living on campus for the 2016-17 academic year, please do the following:

    • Include your fall Residence Hall and room for ease of placement June 27 – August 5
    • Include the name(s) of your roommate(s) for fall 2016 so we can do our best to place you together over the summer
    • Housing deposit carries over from year to year; so if you are a current spring 2016 resident and/or are living on campus fall 2016 no new deposit is required for summer housing.
