Personal Fit

There’s a reason why living on campus is so important at PLU – it’s fun.  Living on campus is so much more than a roof over your head; it’s a lifestyle.

The basics
  • PLU has a residency requirement (see below).
  • All first-years are guaranteed housing.
  • Limited number of single rooms–usually assigned to second year or above residents.
  • People – not computers, match roommates.
  • There is no Greek Life system at PLU.
  • Space is reserved in each hall for new incoming students to help create a more diverse community each year. This does not apply to South Hall.
  • Each hall is staffed by a professional-level Community Director, and between 2 – 16 student-level Resident Assistants.
Residency Requirement

Minimum Age Requirement

Students must be a minimum of 17 years of age on or before September 1st to be eligible for on campus housing for the academic year, or on or before February 1st to be eligible for spring semester.

Meal Plan Requirement

Students residing in traditional residence halls (all halls but South Hall) will be automatically signed up for a meal plan.  South Hall residents are not required to have a meal plan.  Information on the Meal Plan Options and rates can be found at the Campus Restaurants website.

Roommate / Community Living Experience

PLU believes in the valuable experience gained by sharing a room with a roommate, as well as living in a larger wing/floor community with others.  Residential Life works to actively support students in this valuable life experience.

Married Housing

Our apartment style residence hall, South Hall, offers housing for students who are married.  Family student housing is unfortunately not available. Assignments are typically made in February for the following Academic Year.  If you are either married, email us at with your questions.

Accessibility and Accommodation Housing

We encourage all students with housing specific accessibility and accommodation to contact Residential Life to discuss how their specific needs can best be met.

  • PLU has modified several rooms and residence halls to better meet the needs of students with physical needs or disabilities.
  • An application process has been established for students who wish to apply for a single room based on medical, physical, or psychological needs: Application for Accessibility and Accommodation
