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.

Application Deadline: Applications are due by 8:00am Monday, November 25th, 2019.  Late applications will not receive priority points, and assignments will be made in the order applications were received.

Occupancy Dates:  The residence halls will open for J-term residents at 1:00pm on Sunday, January 5th, 2020.  The halls will re-open for Spring residents at 1:00pm on Tuesday, February 4th, 2020.

Types of Housing:

Themed Residential Learning Communities:  PLU has many living learning communities that are an integral part of the PLU experience to choose from: Hinderlie Community for Creative Expression, Hong International Hall, and the Tingelstad Wellness House 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:  Residential Learning Communities.

South Hall:  Is reserved for students at least 20 years of age or with 60 or more credits.  It is an apartment style hall with 1, 2, and 4 bedroom apartments. If you are interested in a multiple bedroom apartment, but don’t have a roommate in mind, Residential Life can help connect you with someone.

Single Room Options:  A limited number of single room requests will be assigned for J-term and Spring semesters.

  • Kreidler Hall:  Is also reserved for students at least 20 years of age or with 60 or more credits on or before February 1st.  It is similar to the Traditional residence halls, but only offers single room housing options.
  • Single-Doubles:  The number of single-double rooms offered will vary by hall.  Assignments will be made in priority point order (for on time applications only).  Click here for more information on priority points.
