Living on campus is an integral component of the PLU experience, adding to the learning that happens both in the classroom and beyond the classroom. First-Year Wings are designed specifically for first-year students and staffed by returning student leaders who want to help you get to know more about PLU. These communities also provide a great place to meet other first-year students and explore the Parkland/Tacoma community. First-Year Wings are located in Foss, Harstad, Hinderlie, Ordal, Pflueger, Stuen and Tingelstad Halls.
We also offer two First in the Family Communities in Foss Hall for those who are also First Generation college students; students for whom neither parent graduated from a four-year institution. These wings provide extra care and support for students who may not have the assistance of someone at home who has first-hand knowledge of the college experience.
