Augsburg University Responds to Stay at Home Order

(MARCH 26)

Augsburg University is working to comply with the executive order to stay at home issued by Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, effective 11:59 p.m. Friday, March 27, through 5 p.m. Friday, April 10. 

Students will be asked to move out of the residence halls, unless granted exceptions. Students’ access will be restricted as fobs will be turned off to all campus buildings.  Resident students who live on campus will retain fob access to their residence hall and the Christensen Center for dining purposes. When classes resume Monday, March 30, they will be online. 

Only employees (including faculty, staff, and student workers) whose roles are deemed critical to university operations will be able to access campus buildings for work purposes.

The university had already been working under a modified operations plan, which began during Augsburg’s spring break, March 18. All campus events and athletic activities have been canceled. Campus buildings are closed to the public, and social distancing practices have been instituted for those who remain on campus.
