Housing and Residence Life

Residence Hall Move In

Living On Campus

Residence halls are more than just places to sleep. They are communities where students get involved, become a part of the vibrant Aurora University student life and develop meaningful friendships. As a resident, you will have easy access to classes, study groups, the library and campus activities. Living on campus is the best way to learn to balance academic and social aspects of college life at AU.

AU students come from diverse backgrounds and social experiences. To help meet students’ needs and expectations, we offer a variety of on-campus living environments. A university residence hall, whether large or small, is a “home away from home.”

The Office of Residence Life helps to foster community, plans social and educational activities in the residence halls to meet students' needs, and provides resource assistance. The primary goal of each Residence Life staff member is to aid residential students in every phase of their adjustment to university life.

Accepted Students: Secure your spot in one of our residence halls by completing a housing contract and making your deposit.

Transfer Students

Transfer students are welcome to apply for on-campus housing. Accepted students can click here to complete this step. Incoming transfer students are typically housed in a group community together to assist in becoming acclimated to AU. Housing assignments will be made on a continual basis, based on availability. When completing the housing contract, incoming transfer students have an opportunity to provide information regarding the type of housing preferred and preferred roommate characteristics. Additional questions are asked on the contract to help determine the best housing assignment as well. In-person interviews with a Student Life staff member may be needed from time to time to complete the housing process. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Office of Residence Life.

Additional off-campus housing information can be found here.
