Instead of opting for a First Year or New Transfer/Returner Wing, students may choose to live in one of our many themed residential learning communites. Residential Life designed the following living/learning communities to support students with a special interst area. These residents have a typical on campus experience with the added value of developing relationships with faculty and sharing a similar community focus. If you are interested in living in one of our Living/Learning Communities you may apply here.
Gender Neutral Housing: PLU has two mixed gender wings, one in Hinderlie Hall and one in Tingelstad Hall, with gender neutral bathrooms. These bathrooms are open to all users, regardless of biological sex or gender identity. Private stalls, with partitions going nearly to the floor and ceiling enclose toilets, urinals and showers with individual changing areas. These wings are safe, inclusive and affirming communities and are designated as mixed gender, allowing rooms selected for male residents and rooms selected for female residents on the same wing. Single rooms and gender neutral rooms will be an option on these wings for students for whom biological sex does not match gender identity. If you would like more information about our Gender Neutral Communities, or to find out how to apply, please visit our Gender Neutral webpage.
