Summer Housing Options

If you are planning on studying at PLU over the summer, it is not too soon to think about housing arrangements. Summer housing will be available to PLU students in one of our traditional residence halls with the option of a Double room (with a roommate) or a Single-Double room (no roommate). Summer Housing is managed by Conferences and Events. You can find information regarding rates and applications on their website.

Meal Plans are not available during the summer, but PLU does offers a variety of dining options.  Please visit the Dining & Culinary Services website for additional information.
