About Augsburg College

Set in a vibrant neighborhood at the heart of the Twin Cities, Augsburg College offers more than 50 undergraduate majors and nine graduate degrees to nearly 3,500 students of diverse backgrounds. The trademark of an Augsburg education is its emphasis on direct, personal experience. Guided by the faith and values of the Lutheran church, Augsburg educates students to be informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders.

Augsburg demonstrates its commitments through the work of four signature centers: the Christensen Center for Vocation, the Center for Global Education, the Sabo Center for Citizenship and Learning, and the Strommen Center for Meaningful Work.

Augsburg’s undergraduate program of liberal arts and sciences is offered on both a traditional weekday schedule and a non-traditional evening schedule. Augsburg offers master’s degree programs in business, education, leadership, nursing, physician assistant studies, creative writing, music therapy, and social work, and a doctoral program in nursing practice. For more information, go to Undergraduate admissions / Adult undergraduate admission / Graduate admissions.

OREN GATEWAY CENTER

Oren Gateway Center is a multi-purpose building of 118,000 square feet of living, working, studying, eating, and meeting space, and was designed by BWBR Architects in St. Paul (who also designed Lindell Library). Oren Gateway is Augsburg’s “front door”—a 180-degree realignment from the early 1900s when Old Main welcomed a neighborhood from which it was later separated with the construction of Interstate 94. Oren Gateway residential spaces provide trendy flats/condo housing for 106 students with underground parking.

The building design has been carried out in conjunction with energy efficiency and environmental responsibility from the beginning. Work with an energy consulting group has helped the building meet strict State of Minnesota energy standards. On the outside, with bio-retention in mind, its landscaping design captures and filters much of the storm sewer run-off.

OGC SUBSTANCE-FREE AGREEMENT AND STEPUP

The residential portion of Oren Gateway is a place free of alcohol and illegal drugs. Oren Gateway residents and their guests may not use or possess alcohol or illegal drugs while in Oren Gateway. If an Oren Gateway resident or guest chooses to use such substances outside of Oren Gateway, the results of that choice may not have a negative impact on the residents or property upon return to Oren Gateway. Residents and their guests may not cause a disruption in Oren Gateway because they used substances elsewhere. Violation of this policy may result in reassignment to other available college housing outside of Oren Gateway.

The StepUP Program at Augsburg College strives to help students champion lives of recovery, achieve academic success, and thrive in a community of accountability and support.
