Commuter & Transfer Student Connections

Commuter Lounges

The Hinderlie Commuter Lounge is a great place to meet other students, study & relax between classes, get connected with events and ways to be involved at PLU. Commuting students can access any residence hall with their Lutecard between 8am-10pm, Monday - Friday. The lounge in Hinderlie Hall is staffed with super friendly Commuter Student Interns from 7:30am-5pm every week day! Hinderlie Lounge serves as a place for commuting students to rest, study, gather, and get connected throughout the school year. In addition, there are other lounges and areas around campus designed with off campus students in mind:

  • The Cave
  • The University Center Commons
  • First floor of the Rieke Science Center
  • University Gallery in Ingram Hall
  • The Fireside Lounge inside the Garfield Book Company
