Living On Campus

Living in one of PLU’s residence halls is a great way to build your on-campus community through our residential learning communities. Residential learning communities allow you space to be challenged to live and grow, create meaningful relationships with your roommate and hall-mates, try out leadership experiences and carve out a legacy for yourself. There is a two-year on-campus living requirement (you can commute if you live with your family within 25 miles or have junior standing and above), but it’s not unusual for students to live on campus all four years because it’s – in a word – fun! 

Student leaders in the residence halls include trained and paid Resident Assistants who are committed to creating inclusive living/learning communities and students on Residence Hall Councils, who work together to provide social and educational programs designed to have students get to know one another and build community in the halls.
