Living on Campus

We also pride ourselves on our sustainability practices both in our student housing and our dining halls. Enjoy the benefits of living on an environmentally focused campus.


Living in Decorah, Iowa

Going to Luther is synonymous with living in beautiful Decorah. Your professors live here, and so do 1,000+ alumni. Decorah is a hidden gem that lies in the Driftless Region. It’s a beautiful environment of rolling hills, sandstone bluffs, waterfalls, and spring-fed creeks. And the community of Decorah is just as unique and inviting as the landscape. See why we are proud to call Decorah our home.

Support Services

Luther is committed to supporting all facets of your student life. We walk with you through academic challenges and assist you in your internship and job search. Luther also provides counseling services and other supportive programs.

I built so many relationships, learned and grew a ton, and made many great memories at Luther and in Decorah.
