Auggie Basics Housing Application

The priority deadline for Auggie Basics for summer 2022 and the 2022-23 academic year was Monday, April 4, 2022. The application will continue to remain open after the deadline, but students will be placed on a waitlist. As beds become available, applications will be reviewed.

About the Program

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 students secure permanent housing elsewhere, they will be released from the program, and the spots will be offered to other students. 

Eligibility for Auggie Basics Housing

To be eligible for Auggie Basics Housing, students must be returning students and not receiving other housing aid from Augsburg 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.

Students in the StepUP® Program are not eligible to apply for Auggie Basics Housing. However, additional aid may be available. Contact StepUP at stepup@augsburg.edu for more information.

Meal Plans

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.
