Move In - Step by Step!

Departing Campus

When you are ready to say goodbye, whether it is just for the summer or for graduation, there are still a few details to consider.  Make your move out easy by following the simple steps for Traditional Hall checkout or South and Kreidler Hall checkout.

Students who are leaving the University mid-semester should contact Student Services and schedule a check-out with your RA/CA within 24 hours of withdrawal in order to avoid improper check out penalties. Please refer to the appropriate Housing Guide for any cancellation penalty information. For further information, contact our office at rlif@plu.edu.

Cancelling your Housing

The combined meal plan and housing application and contract is a binding agreement.  Please refer to the appropriate Housing Guide for any cancellation penalty information.
