Auggie Basics Housing – Application Open for Summer 2022 and 2022-2023 Academic Year

submitted by

Augsburg University is accepting applications for Auggie Basics Housing for summer 2022 and the 2022-23 academic year.

Monday, April 4, 2022 at 5pm

Auggie Basics Housing is designed to address the needs of students who are experiencing housing instability. The purpose of the program is to provide a bridge for students whose housing is not stable as they seek to identify a permanent solution.

Students accepted into Auggie Basics Housing will live on campus without cost to the student. Regardless of when students enter the program, the housing commitment will cover the full academic year if needed. If the student secures permanent housing elsewhere, they will be released from the program and the spot will be offered to another student.

Students are not required to have a meal plan if they are selected for Auggie Basics Housing, including those placed into buildings that require one.

To be eligible for Auggie Basics Housing, students must be returning students and not receiving other housing aid from the University. Incoming first-year and transfer students are not eligible to apply.

Students may apply for housing either for the summer term and/or for the academic year. Students must reapply each academic year, and may be part of the program for up to two academic years. Being chosen for Auggie Basics Housing one year does not guarantee participation in future years.


Questions may be directed to Michael Grewe, Assistant Dean of Students, at
