Augsburg College

Living and Learning
in the City

Set in a vibrant neighborhood at the heart of the Twin Cities, Augsburg College offers more than 50 undergraduate majors and 9 graduate degrees to nearly 4,000 students of diverse backgrounds. The trademark of an Augsburg education is its emphasis on experiential education, or "learning by doing." Guided by faith, Augsburg educates students to be informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders.

Campus Living

Auggies love life in the city

AUGSBURG OFFERS FOUR DIFFERENT RESIDENCE HALLS for first-year and upper-class students. With their own unique amenities, each provides a variety of on-campus living opportunities including suites, apartments, townhouses, and floorhouses.

Living on campus will allow you to meet lots of interesting people and make lifelong friends; enjoy the convenience of being near your classes, the cafeteria, the library, sporting events, and other College resources; and take advantage of living in the heart of the city.


Auggies are active

THE AUGGIES ARE AFFILIATED WITH THE MINNESOTA INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETIC CONFERENCE and National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III. We offer 10 men's and 11 women's varsity sports.

Augsburg boasts the Ed Saugestad Rink, a top-notch gymnasium, a wrestling center, a full-size outdoor athletic field, extensive locker rooms, and a training and fitness center open to all students.

Science Hall

Auggies make discoveries

Science and math majors are well acquainted with the labs and classrooms in the Science Hall, home to the biology, physics, mathematics, chemistry, and biopyschology departments.

The Office of Undergraduate Research and Graduate Opportunity (URGO) is also within the Science Hall, and connects students with research and scholarship on campus, across the country, and internationally. Additionally, each summer more than 30 Augsburg students participate in URGO's 10-week research program on campus.

Old Main

Auggie tradition lives on

AUGSBURG SEMINARY opened in September 1869, in Marshall, Wis. and moved to Minneapolis in 1872. Built in 1901, Old Main (originally known as "New Main") first contained a chapel, gymnasium, classrooms, a library, and museum, and quickly became the heart of campus activity.

Now Old Main is home to the Art Department and classroom space, and still stands unaltered, ornamented with granite columns and terra cotta. In 1983, Old Main was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and today remains a point of pride for the College.

Lindell Library

Auggies are academic

LINDELL LIBRARY is a state-of-the-art library and information technology center, and also houses the Writing Lab, where students can work with tutors on written assignments and find useful information and resources.

Lindell Library also contains the Gage Center for Student Success, which connects students to academic services that will help them achieve their educational goals through the collaboration of Academic Advising, the Academic Skills Office, the CLASS Office, and TRIO/Student Support Services. Within the Gage Center is the Groves Lab, which provides assistive technology for students with disabilities, as well as a fully-equipped computer lab available to all students.

Auggies get involved

THE TWIN CITIES boast a strong economy and a vibrant culture, home to several theaters, six professional sports teams, and more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies.
