Students taking less than a full course load must request permission from the Dean of Students to live in/remain in on-campus housing.
When a student chooses to leave Luther Seminary housing, a 30-day notice is required by the Housing Office.
Pets are not allowed in seminary-owned housing.
A security deposit must be paid at the Business Office when the lease is signed. The amount of the security deposit is subject to review and change.
- The deposit for Stub Hall is $300.00.
- The deposit for LDR is $500.
- The deposit for the duplexes/houses are equal to one month’s rent for the house.
This deposit covers damage to the unit (above normal wear), keys not returned, and failure to leave the unit, including appliances, clean and undamaged. The deposit will not be returned if the tenant does not go through the required check-out procedure.
The security deposit will be refunded when a clean, undamaged unit is vacated and all keys have been returned. If the student has an outstanding account balance at the seminary any refund will be applied to that account.
Rent for Stub Hall is billed each semester. If a student receives financial aid, the semester rent amount will be deducted from the financial aid award. If a student does not receive financial aid, rent payments can be made monthly in the Business Office. If a student is delinquent in rent payments and has not made satisfactory arrangements for payment in the Business Office, the student may lose the privilege of living in seminary housing as well as the right to register for courses.
For residents living in Stub Hall, the fall semester rent charge will include the months of September through December. The spring semester rent charge will include the months of January through May. June, July, and August rent will be billed monthly.
Duplex/House rent payments are due in the Business Office on the first of each month. Only one check may be submitted for rent for each house. Housemates will need to determine which resident will pay the rent and a process for collecting the rent from the other housemates.
Payments for Stub Hall may be made online using MyLutherNet. House rent payments cannot be made online. Failure to do so will put a resident in a delinquent status and a hold may be placed on their student account. Residents who fail to bring their accounts current will be required to vacate Seminary housing within the next 30 days. Rent is charged beginning on the date indicated on your apartment lease.
Keys are given out on the start date of the lease. Duplicate copies may NOT be made of any Seminary key. Lost key charges are as follows:
- $50.00 – Stub stairwell and room door key
- $50.00 – LDR apartment key
- $50.00 – Duplex/House keys

Students must register all vehicles (free of charge) with the Business Office. Parking tags will be issued at that time. These must be visibly displayed in the lower left corner of the windshield.
There are no assigned parking spaces except those marked for the Augsburg PA Program and handicapped parking spaces. Trailers and moving trucks should always be parked away from the buildings except when loading and unloading. Please respect loading zones and move your vehicle promptly so others may load and unload.
After a snowfall, Seminary maintenance will plow the parking lots after two or more inches have accumulated. Individual parking spaces will be cleared of snow as they are vacated. Please clear the snow off of your vehicle and move your vehicle to a cleared parking space as they open up so that the lots may be efficiently cleared. Vehicles without parking tags maybe towed at the owner’s expense. Please observe and obey all speed limits and other posted signs in parking lots.
Leave of Absence
Students may be eligible to remain in student housing for up to one semester while on an official Leave of Absence.
A student who withdraws from the seminary loses their eligibility to reside in student housing and will be expected to vacate no later than thirty (30) days after withdrawal or dismissal.
