Incoming Students

Application Process (Academic Year 2020-2021)

Incoming first year students and transfer students can apply for housing online after their Enrollment Deposit has been paid. A link to the Housing Application will be provided in the Enrollment Deposit confirmation email. A housing assignment is dependent on the enrollment deposit being paid.

When an application is submitted (and Parent Signed Master Housing and Meal Agreement Form, if applicable), our staff will review the application which may take between a week and two weeks.  After review, we will send an email to those students with a Learning Community and Hall placement.

Students will find out their roommate in late July via email.

Please note all notifications will be sent to a students PLU email account, so check it regularly!

Continuing Students

Application Process (Academic Year 2020-2021)

Current PLU students who wish to apply to live on-campus must submit a new Housing Application every academic year.

To apply to South Hall students who qualify must complete a Learning Community Application prior to 11:59pm (PST) on February 19th in order to have priority points considered. If a student does not receive an apartment and they are required to live on campus, our office will use the same housing application toward the Room Selection Event in early April.

To apply to Traditional Halls and Stuen Hall continuing students must submit a housing application and attend the Room Selection Process which will be held in early April.
