  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

Augsburg College is Amazing! Literally the minute I stepped on campus I was greeted by hellos and received help (both from staff and students going about their daily lives) finding every location that I asked for. I was staying overnight and was impressed at how safe and comfortable I felt as the campus was well lit and there were emergency phone booths everywhere, on top of campus security patrolling every hour.
Ijaaz from Stacy, MN
Great school that is small, but located in the heart of the city. There are a variety of options here and there is always something to do or explore. It is a safe campus with a great community located around it with a great educational opportunity.
