Application Process (Academic Year 2021-2022)

Incoming First Year and Transfer Students

Incoming first year and transfer students can apply for housing online after their Enrollment Deposit has been paid. A link to the Learning Community 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, our staff will review the application which may take between a week and two weeks.  After review, we will send an email detailing the Learning Community and Hall placement that the student will be assigned to for the Fall. Please note that room information will not be shared until move-in day.

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

Continuing students who wish to apply to live on-campus must submit a new Learning Community Application every academic year.

To apply to South Hall students who meet the eligibility requirements  must complete a Learning Community Application prior to 11:59pm (PST) on February 17th, 2021 in order to have priority points considered.
