Hong International Hall: Global Experience, Local Address.

Located in the middle of upper campus, Hong International Hall is home to a unique living/learning community consisting of five language and culture houses:  Chinese, French, German, Norwegian, Spanish, and one house dedicated to the International Honors program.  Hong is a hub for campus activities focused on language, culture and international issues. Hong Hall is known for its small, tight-knit community of curious and fun PLU students.  It is an incredibly welcoming hall that creates a supportive home and a hopeful environment challenging residents to become fluent in languages and conversant with international issues.

Did you know that Hong International Hall is not just for International Students?

Hong International Hall promotes global awareness though language immersion and cultural engagement. It’s the perfect place to live when getting ready to study away, and welcoming home to return to after the adventures of study away.  Residents are fond of pointing out they get all the advantages of any other hall on campus, with the added fun of sharing the world with neighbors!
