As the saying goes, there's a lot to be learned outside the college classroom, and choosing a residence hall—or dorm, as it's known in college vernacular—is an important step toward learning the lessons of living with others and developing community.
Luther is a residential college, meaning that students should plan to live in campus housing for their entire four years. Upper class students can select rooms in townhouses, apartments, college-owned residential houses in neighborhoods adjacent to the campus, clusters, suites, and traditional residence hall rooms.
First-year students are mailed a housing application after receipt of their enrollment deposit. The application gives students an opportunity to state their preferences for residence halls, and to tell us a little about themselves. For more information, see First-Year Student Information.
Room Draw, the process by which upper class students select rooms for the coming academic year, begins in February and continues through the spring semester.
