Auggie Basics Housing

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. 

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.
