To continue to negate the spread of COVID-19, Luther Seminary will hold Winter and Spring 2020-21 courses online. We will not open up on-campus housing to new residents until on-campus classes resume. Students for whom this would create a hardship must receive permission to move on-campus. If you want to be considered for on-campus housing in the 2020-21 academic year, you should complete the housing application first. On-campus dining services are on hold this academic year.
In the 2020-21 academic year, Luther Seminary continues our transition towards our Campus of the Future with the sale of “lower campus” proceeding and our relocation to “upper campus.” Thus, available on-campus housing for 2020-21 will be single furnished dormitory rooms in Bockman Hall and the Branston or Grantham Street houses (3-4 bedrooms).
Assignment priorities for on-campus housing exist with the goal of maximizing the use of our available units and helping to foster community for our new students.
- Current on-campus residents enrolled in on-campus courses may request lease extensions or renewals; these are approved on a case-by-case basis.
- Incoming (new) International students (F-1 or J-1 visas; no family housing options).
- Incoming (new) PhD students (for first year of study).
- Incoming (new) residential students (first come, first served).
- Continuing students that live off campus and are enrolled in on-campus (residential) courses.
To better align with the academic calendar, all leases will run through June 30, 2021, unless a shorter term is requested and approved. Rent is not being raised for 2020-21.
On Wed., May 13, Student Affairs hosted a Q&A session via Zoom on housing for this summer and the 2020-21 academic year. A FAQ sheet was created from the questions submitted by those who attended the meeting and via email by students who could not attend the meeting.
