Residence Halls & Apartments

  • Housing first-year students on its upper two levels, Wollaeger Hall features 12 x 18 foot, two-person air conditioned rooms and community style bathrooms. The main level of Wollaeger Hall is home to the Barbara Schoenbeck Early Learning Center and Hand-In-Hand Child Care Center, which serves the local community and offers training and enrichment for Concordia students pursuing careers in early child education. Constructed in 1964, Wollaeger Hall was named after Rev. Herman William Franz Wollaeger, Ph.D., professor of German and librarian at Concordia from 1904 to 1941. At various points, the hall served as a women’s residence and a health center.

  • Housing almost 100 first-year students on four separate wings, Luther Hall features 12 x 18 foot, two-person rooms, community style bathrooms, and air conditioned community lounges. The lower level is attached to the university tunnel that connects to most university facilities including the Library, Dining Hall, Academic Advising, and academic buildings.

  • Housing a mixture of men and women enrolled in our Living Learning Communities, Hyatt Village features 10 x 12 foot, two-person air conditioned suites. Our suite-styled living options consist of two people per room sharing a private bathroom facility with suite mates (2 other people of the same gender in their own room connected by the bathroom). There are five pods, each consisting of 8 rooms and a community lounge with new 4K flat screen televisions, lounge furniture, study tables, microwaves, and toasters.

The two- and four- bedroom units feature two bathrooms, a kitchen, living room and individual bedrooms. The studio units include a kitchen, living/sleeping area and a separate bathroom. In May 2011 The Residence life was renamed Holst Hall by the Concordia University Board of Regents in honor of 20-year president Rev. Dr. Robert Holst.

  • One bedroom apartments reserved for students with families, a spouse, enrolled in graduate school, or over the age of 24. Complete with a full kitchen, private bathroom, community laundry room, storage units, parking spots, and heating units, Mary and Martha Halls offer a private, apartment style living option for qualifying students.

     Get Involved In Your Hall!

There are so many ways to get involved throughout campus and it all starts in your residence hall. Students connect in apartments, engage in our green spaces, study in our lounges, and hop into programs happening in and outside the halls. Resident Assistants (RAs) are hosting programs all year on campus! If it’s a weekday or a weekend, there is always something for you to do. Maybe it is a study night, free food, tea and coffee night, mug decorating, build your own blanket, eat around the world, Superbowl watch party, or crafting night. Be bold! Meet new people! Jump in! Check out this page to see our upcoming residence life programs.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • It’s up to you! Sometimes athletes prefer to live together because they understand the demands of a college athlete and might have a similar schedule. Sometimes athletes prefer to live with non-athletes or non-teammates because it gives them the opportunity to interact with other students.

  • Our staff hand pick all roommates who do not have a roommate request. There is a section on the housing application for you to complete that we use to help match you with a good roommate – we really encourage you to be honest in this section. The office of Admissions also has a Facebook page called “Concordia University, St. Paul Admissions” that you can request to be added to, and an Instagram page at  “cspadmissions” that you can follow. They post frequently and sometimes do features of incoming students – send them a picture and a bio to get your name out there and meet some other incoming students!

  • This depends. We would discuss the number of credits you’ve completed and your age. Based on those items, we will determine if our first year halls might be best for you, or if we think you would fit well in our apartment style housing.

  • Only fish are allowed in the halls as pets unless it is a service animal or ESA that is registered and approved through Student Accessibility Services.

  • Contact Student Accessibility Services (SAS) at [email protected]. We do have deadlines – May 1 for the fall semester, December 1 for the spring semester, and April 1 for summer. Accommodation requests after this time will be viewed on a case by case basis.

  • Definitely consider it if you are a first-year student. We have lots of details discussed above on this web page. Being a part of a living learning community (LLC) allows you to live with people with similar interests as you, and you’ll have the chance to take a class with those in your LLC for both the fall and spring semester. If you’re interested in making most of your friends through your academic major, this might be a good choice for you. If you’d like to make lots of connections outside of your major this might not be the best option for you.

  • All residents in Hyatt, Luther and Wollaeger residents are required to be on the full meal plan. Holst residents can chose to opt out, be on the Holst meal plan or upgrade to the full meal plan. Mary and Martha residents are not required to be on a meal plan. If you feel that you need to opt out of a meal plan because of an accommodation, you should reach out to Student Accessibility Services (SAS) [email protected] to talk about your options.

  • Flex Points (which is what we call our meal plan dollars) expire at the end of each semester.  You will have the opportunity to purchase items in bulk through the dining hall towards the end of each semester to use up your extra points. You also have the opportunity to donate unused points to Comet’s Cupboard food shelf.

  • Each resident is assigned a mailbox at move in. To get mail, send it to:

    First Name Last Name (please do not use nicknames and make sure to put down your full name)

Visitation hours for Luther hall, Wollaeger Hall, and Hyatt Village are 10 a.m. to 12 midnight Sunday-Thursday and 10a.m. – 1a.m. Friday-Saturday. Holst hall and Mary and Martha Halls do not have set visitation hours; however, guests of the opposite gender are not allowed to spend the night.  For the 20-21 Academic Year – no guests are allowed in the residence halls. Only residents who live in the residence hall are allowed in that residence hall. 

  • RAs are your first point of contact for any questions you have about CSP. They are also great for connecting you with other staff members, student organizations, or offices to help you get connected. They’re a great person to go to if you are having any problems or just need someone to talk to. They also help build a community on your floor or in your pod through programming – they create fun and helpful bulletin boards, and put on events for your floor and your whole hall, such as pizza nights, spa programs, and sports watch parties.

  • We strive to make our residence halls communities where everyone is welcomed and respected. Because of this, you’ll often become very close with your roommates and floormates. There are lounges where you can do homework together, play games, or watch something on the TV. We also have in hall workout facilities that you can access (more information listed above on this webpage). Finally, our residence life staff put on programs on a regular basis, ranging from outdoor cookouts, to Bob Ross painting sessions, to de-stressing kits. If you have ideas for a program or event that you think would be good in your hall, definitely reach out to your RA to share it.

  • We have many student organizations and offices that put on events almost every single day. The Concordia Activities Board (CAB) also has fun programs happening on a weekly basis. To stay up to date on what is happening during the upcoming week, check out Comet’s Connection.

  • CSP will continue to follow recommendations and guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and local, state, and federal government officials. Please see our COVID-19 page for more information on our policies and procedures.

  • Residence Life will not share information with parents, friends, or family members unless it is an emergency and information needs to be shared for the safety and security of the resident. 

  • The first round of housing assignments are emailed in June to those who have submitted both the housing application and the necessary deposits. After this time, we may not be able to fulfill all preferences listed on the application. Students who need accommodations must have all information submitted to Student Accessibility Services by June 1. After June 1, we cannot guarantee that accommodations can be accommodated.
