Your Residence Hall (你/妳的宿舍)
You will be living in South Hall, an apartment-style complex on the south edge of campus. It has many amenities, such as a laundry room (with free washer and dryers), a fitness room, lounges and study rooms, and a beautiful front lawn. You’ll share these with PLU students in undergraduate degree programs.
- Each apartment has a common kitchen and living room space, 2 bathrooms, and 4 individual bedrooms. You will have 1-3 roommates in your apartment. You are responsible for keeping your apartment clean and following all university policies.
All ABC students agreed to PLU’s Terms and Conditions for Housing, as well as the information in the South Hall Housing Guide. You are expected to obey those regulations just like any other student at PLU. The documents can be found at:
