Department of Residential Life

Living on Campus

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.  Residential Life makes every attempt to provide residents with the needed resources, to live in a healthy and enjoyable community.  These resources range from the assistance of trained professional and student staff members, to programs and services that help students to live, grow and learn in a residential community.

Living on campus extends your education beyond the classroom.  PLU residence halls offer important opportunities for growth, community engagement and immersion in campus life.


For the most up-to-date information check our Residential Life Year at A Glance to see scheduled University holidays as well as dates and times for scheduled arrivals and departures.
