Global Experience, Local Address.

Located in the middle of upper campus, Hong Global Hall is home to a unique living/learning community consisting of six language and global engagement houses:  Chinese, French, Spanish, Global Studies, and the International Honors program.  Hong is a hub for campus activities focused on language, culture and international issues, including being home to PLU’s Language Resource Center, a multimedia center designed to serve as a virtual and physical hub of international studies across the campus of Pacific Lutheran University. Hong Hall is known for its small, tight-knit community of students with zest for fun and learning. It is an incredibly welcoming hall that creates a supportive home and a hopeful environment, challenging residents to become fluent in languages and conversant with international issues.

Hong Global Hall is for local, national, and international students.

Hong Global Hall promotes global awareness though language immersion and cultural engagement. It’s the perfect place to live when getting ready to study away, and welcoming home to return to after the adventures of study away.  Residents are fond of pointing out they get all the advantages of any other hall on campus, with the added fun of sharing the world with neighbors!
