Housing Procedures

Here at AU, residence life is about more than just where you live. This is your community, your friends, and your family while at college. The intentional relationships that you build with your RD, RA, roommate, and floormates can make positive, lasting impressions on your life and your relationship with Christ.

New Students will be assigned housing during the summer months.

Returning Students enter room draw every spring semester to select their room for the following school year.
