Tingelstad Wellness Community Application

Wellness House Application

About the Wellness House in Tingelstad

The Wellness House is located in Tingelstad Hall and is a community of students who are interested in engaging in conversations and activities that promote and sustain healthy lifestyles. This includes transitioning to college in a way that develops healthy habits around mindfulness, diet, exercise, substance use, time management, and mental health. The Wellness House fosters an environment of holistic health and wellness, encourages residents to learn more about overall wellness, and supports residents in achieving their personal goals.

The first-year students assigned to the Wellness House will be linked to a First Year Experience Program (FYEP) Writing 101 courses on a wellness topic. During New Student Registration (in June), all first-year residents and commuter students who have opted into this experience will sign up for one of these linked FYEP Writing 101 sections. Co-enrollment in linked FYEP Writing 101 courses is available for Fall semester only.  Continuing residents do not have a linked course requirement.


All students applying for housing in the Wellness House must complete a standard PLU housing application and the application below. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until space is no longer available.  Incoming first-year students interested in the Wellness House community in Tingelstad should apply as soon as possible.
