When you live and learn in the heart of the city, there’s always something to do. Augsburg’s campus sits in the vibrant Cedar-Riverside neighborhood near downtown Minneapolis. Our location is a short walk, bike, or light rail ride away from Fortune 500 companies, world-renowned theaters and museums, concerts and sporting events, lakes and trails, restaurants and shopping, and hundreds of destinations.
Nearly half of all Augsburg students participate in sports at the intercollegiate or intramural level, and the university offers student groups for every interest and passion. From campus ministry and art club to student government and the chemistry society, there is a way for all students to connect with peers.
PURSUE YOUR PASSION
Students are encouraged to explore their artistic talents and abilities and to express creativity in fun and innovative ways, whether a fine arts major or not. Auggies who participate in the fine arts—music, theater, film, speech, and art—are surrounded by a rich, creative community and offered an abundance of resources and amenities.
MAKING A HOME
About 60% of traditional first-year students live on campus. These Auggies benefit from living near classes and resources like the library, bookstore, chapel, dining hall, and computer labs. These students blend on-campus convenience with the chance to form meaningful friendships and lasting memories.
"The thing I really like about Augsburg is the diversity. You’re going to be hanging out with different people with different beliefs, and that challenges your own faith. That definitely helped me reach outside my norms."
