Getting to Augsburg From msp airport:

Light Rail

Light rail trains run every 7 or 8 minutes during peak hours and every 10 to 15 minutes at other times of the day from both Lindbergh and Humphrey terminals. Light rail fares for adults are $2.25 during rush hours (Monday through Friday, 6 – 9 am and 3 – 6:30 pm) and $1.75 at other times. Tickets are sold at vending kiosks at the rail station and can be paid for by cash or credit card. You cannot buy tickets on the train. Keep your receipt handy in case you are asked for proof of payment.

The Lindbergh Terminal light rail station (Main Station) is located below the Transit Center, between the Blue and Red Parking Ramps.  From the Tram Level (one level below bag claim), take the automated tram to the Transit Center. When you exit the tram, follow the signs to the light rail station, located 70 feet underground.

The Humphrey Terminal light rail station is located on the north side of the Orange Parking Ramp. From the Humphrey Terminal, take the skyway from Level 2 to the parking ramp. Follow the overhead signs through both parking ramps. Take the escalators or elevators down one level to the station platform.

Take the train to Franklin Avenue Station: 8 stops from Humphrey Terminal, 7 stops from Lindbergh Terminal, which takes about 25 minutes one way. Franklin Avenue Station is located just west of the intersection of 20th, Minnehaha, and Cedar Avenues.  Walk north about three blocks along 20th Ave. S., crossing Interstate 94, from the station to the intersection of 20th Ave. S. and 7th Street S. Turn right at 7th Street and walk half a block. Anderson Residence Hall will be through the parking lot on your right. (This is about a 5-7 minute walk.)
