J-Term and Spring Housing Options
We encourage students to explore on-campus options because of the unique benefits our communities provide. Our residence halls are within 5 minutes of your classrooms, the library, study groups, etc. and are designed and staffed to encourage connections and a sense of belonging.

Themed Residential Learning Communities: PLU has many living learning communities: Hinderlie Community for Creative Expression, Hong International Hall, and Social Action and Leadership are just a few. The residents in these halls have a typical on campus experience with the added value of developing relationships with faculty and sharing a similar community focus. Additional information is available on our website: Themed Residential Learning Communities.
