Pacific Lutheran University requires that all single, full-time students live in university housing unless:

  • Living at home with parent, spouse, or child within 25 miles of PLU’s address.
  • 20 years of age or Junior Status (60 semester hours) on or before September 1 to be exempt for the academic year, or on or before February 1 to be exempt for the spring semester.

Students in violation of the Residency Requirement will be referred to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities for disciplinary action.
