Around You

The PLU campus is nestled in a quiet neighborhood located seven miles south of Downtown Tacoma. Although the campus is virtually self-contained there is also much to see and do nearby. The locally-famed business district on Garfield Street is immediately outside the doors of PLU, offering your guests an eclectic mix of everything form the basic everyday services to some of the most sought after restaurants in Pierce County. Or, if you are feeling more like venturing outside of our quaint neighborhood, you will find world renowned sights and activities within a short drive of the campus.
