Welcome to Residential Life!

There's a reason why living on-campus at PLU is so 

Residential Life strives to create respectful, diverse, and safe communities that enhance student learning.  The residential community is an environment that challenges you to live and grow, create meaningful relationships with your roommate and hall-mates, try out leadership experiences, and carve out a legacy for yourself. 

The residence halls are a place where you can draw connections between what’s happening in the classroom and what’s happening in your life.  The student leaders in the residence halls will work with you to create communities that are exciting and fun!

Move-in Day is so exciting! Watch this video for your step-by-step Move-in Day Instructions.
