Services

Housing services

Learning to live cooperatively is an integral part of Concordia University’s mission to “prepare students for thoughtful and informed living”. Living with others, learning to share space, and community integration are a part of the campus community and we want students to have those learning experiences in all areas of collegiate life.

Concordia is committed to providing equal access for students with disabilities that substantially limit a major life activity and significantly affect living arrangements. Students are responsible to provide this information to Student Accessibility Services (SAS) and Residence Life by stated deadlines.

Library services

If you’ve paid a visit to the CSP Library in the past several months, you’ve likely noticed a few changes to its space. These changes include minimal things like new blue paint on the library’s interior columns and more noticeable changes like empty bookshelves and the return of certain student services to the library including the Help Desk, Writing Center, and Multilingual Language Lab.

Medical services

All universities and colleges are required by Minnesota Law (M.S.135A.14) to maintain immunization records for each student. Minnesota law requires all college students to be immunized for Tetanus and Diphtheria (Td) within the past 10 years. College students born after 1956 must be immunized for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) after the age of 12 months.
