I personally have not have this experience, but I have an older sister who also goes to Augustana. She said finding off-campus housing, and if you have a good landlord, he will understand about prices and they usually aren't that bad. Some are close to campus, while others can be far away.

At Augustana you have to live on campus for the first 3 years unless you are commuting from your parent's house. Senior year you are "highly encouraged" to live off campus because of this many of the houses right next to campus are rented out to college seniors. If you put forth effort early then there is no problem finding a nice convenient place near campus. Watch out though because some students start signing leases as early as spring of their sophomore year.

The housing is rather expensive for my college. To be honest, the money is not worth the space that is provided to you. Some houses are dirty and run down while others are perfectly fine. The housing is just plain inconsistent and too expensive. Also, the housing process that consists of random lottery number picks is just terrible in my opinion. it should not be a random process, it should be chosen by student preference in addition to those who are financially able to pay.

Finding a good off-campus house or apartment is easy as long as you start early. Most of the houses in the area are older, but generally well-kept. Students can find out about places for rent through on-campus services, but the best way is to ask friends, alumni, and even professors for recommendations. The best thing about living off-campus is that I've saved about $6,000 this year because my rent is cheaper than the room & board I paid with tuition last year.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
