Department of Residential Life

More Than Just Living On Campus...

Without the help of students like you, Residential Life could not make the residence hall experience the safe, comfortable, and fun environment it currently is today!  We offer several opportunities, both paid and volunteer, for you contribute to life on campus.  And in the process, you’ll learn some valuable skills that will last well beyond your time here at PLU – organizational, leadership, programming, emergency response, just to name a few!  So whether you want to put in a couple of hours a week or several, there’s a place for you on the Residential Life Student Staff team!
