real life. Shared.

a journey we walk together

What better way to get involved with other students on campus than to live in an AU residence hall or on-campus apartment? This is an exciting time to build new relationships and to learn more about yourself and others. AU strives to foster an inclusive community which enriches student learning and growth, where students feel welcome and known as valued members of the community.

You’re invited to read up on the Student Life policies to help aid in a positive Residence Life experience. Students with food allergies or other health concerns should visit Health Services.
