As part of the Augsburg University Equity Proposal, the Auggie Basics – Housing initiative (formerly known as the Equity Housing Program) is designed to address the needs of students who experience 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 the Auggie Basics Program 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. Summer housing may be an option. Students must reapply each academic year. Being chosen for the Auggie Basics program one year does not guarantee participation in future years.

A new process is being developed for students who experience food instability. More information will be provided as it is available.

As part of the program, students will be encouraged to utilize resources on campus. These include but are not limited to the Center for Wellness and Counseling, the Center for Learning and Accessible Student Services (CLASS) office, TRiO/SSS, Academic Advising, Multicultural Student Services, Student Affairs office, etc. The Dean of Students will provide ongoing communication and support throughout the academic year to make sure students are aware of resources and may access them as necessary.
