Auggie Basics Housing Application – Summer 2023

Applications for Summer 2023 are currently open. The priority deadline to apply is by noon on Friday, April 14. Students will be notified if they have received Auggie Basics Housing for summer 2023 by Friday, April 21.

Applications for the 2023-2024 academic year will go live in late July.

About the Program

Auggie Basics Housing is an emergency bridge program designed to address the needs of students who are experiencing immediate housing insecurities. 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, or if students withdraw from/leave the university, 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. 

To be eligible for Auggie Basics Housing during the summer, students must be returning students and registered for classes in the summer OR fall.

Students may apply for housing either for the summer term and/or for the academic year. Students may participate in the program for up to one academic year (including one summer, if accepted). Being chosen for Auggie Basics Housing in the summer does not guarantee participation for the academic year (and vice-versa).

Auggie Basics housing does not cover study abroad or study away housing. It also does not cover the costs of any off-campus housing.

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.
