Residence Life

Learn about your first-year residence halls, get room dimensions, view photos and video

Luther is a residential college by design. We believe the best environment for learning is one where students not only study and attend classes on campus, but also live on campus.

First-Year Students

With rooms that sleep two to four students, our first-year residence halls come equipped with social and study lounges, wireless internet, computer labs, laundry rooms, and kitchens.

We want all new students, many of whom are living away from home for the first time, to feel comfortable. To this end, first-year students have the option of living on Wellness and Quiet floors. Our new student page can teach you more about your future home, including how roommates are selected.

Our residence halls are staffed by compassionate, trustworthy, and approachable upper-class students and Residence Life professionals who help you make the most of your experience.

Upper-Class Students

Students currently living on campus select next year’s housing through a room draw, with preference given to students with the highest number of credit hours completed. Upper-class student housing includes college-owned houses, apartments, or townhouses, or clusters and suites in on-campus residence halls.
