Welcome! You have made a great decision in choosing to live in on campus at Augsburg University. You will find endless opportunities here that will enhance your overall college life. The Department of Residence Life strives to provide affordable yet comfortable, responsible, resourceful and respectful communities for all our residents. To help explore what our communities have to offer, we have created this newsletter to provide you with some general information about living in our communities.

You are at a time in your college life where you would need to make challenging decisions about your academics and future career. The residential communities here at Augsburg offer a comfortable atmosphere to enable you focus on all your dreams. You will meet other students that may share in your goals and beliefs and help you make real connections both at Augsburg and beyond.

We have a very dedicated group of professional and student staff who are here to help facilitate the peer to peer interactions that enhance your college life. You will be living in a community where your peers have varied interests and needs. We encourage you to take advantage of this diversity and also share with the rest of your community any talents and contributions that will benefit the rest of your peers. We have a diverse team with a common goal of making your experience here at Augsburg a memorable one.

Be sure to get to know the student staff members in your community – Resident Assistants and Community Specialists. These peers have already experienced most of the challenges you now face and can be great resources as you navigate through your college life. Your Residence Hall Director also has the experience, training and skill to advise you as you encounter difficult situations. Be sure to utilize them.

Welcome to Augsburg University and to the residence halls. We look forward to meeting each of you and wish you much success here at Augsburg University!

Residence Life Vision

The Office of Residence Life is dedicated to the growth and development of its students in a holistic and meaningful way. We encourage students to be responsible, resourceful, and respectful in all that they do as members of the Augsburg University community.

It is our intention to provide a safe, secure, and enjoyable living experience for residential students that fosters an environment of intentionality, connection, care, authenticity, and belonging. We want students to learn, understand, and grow within the Augsburg residential community and beyond. We strive to do this in several ways:

Your Path.

College is a time of transition and growth and Residence Life wants to help support and guide students throughout their collegiate experience. We provide students with a variety of opportunities through programming and engagement that encourage them to make decisions and choices that are best for them and how they choose to engage within our community.

Your People.

We want to help students foster connections across campus with their faculty, staff, and peers.. We are all members of the Augsburg community and we want to be able to lean on each other as we strive to become the best versions of ourselves and share our gifts with one another. As a team focused department, we aim to help students find connections that help them develop holistically and grow in meaningful ways.

Your Place.

We strive to create an environment that allows students to be their authentic selves. We value each member of the Augsburg community for the unique perspectives and experiences they bring forth and want to do our best to help students realize how important they are in the fabric of our community. We want to make sure all voices feel heard and we are focused on perspective sharing, encouraging authenticity, and establishing a strong sense of belonging for each unique member of our community.
