We deeply desire that you grow as a whole person during your years here. We trust you will experience an extra measure of God’s grace as you participate in our community. Opportunities to learn, grow, and serve are abundant here. The entire PLNU community is preparing for your arrival.
At New Student Orientation (NSO), you will meet key people, get your ID card, learn about the culture of PLNU, move into your room, purchase your textbooks, and much more. You are welcome to bring up to two guests to attend NSO with you.

PLNU is pleased to offer a specially reduced rate at a variety of Bartell Hotels in the San Diego area. Rates are based on availability and all appropriate taxes and hotel fees apply. To guarantee a special rate, please book early and ask for the "PLNU rate" at the time the reservation is made. In return, Bartell will donate a percentage of the total room cost to PLNU's university fund benefiting student scholarships. Book online and find additional information about PLNU's partnership with Bartell hotels.
PLNU is dedicated to providing students with disabilities access to the programs, services, and activities of the university, as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) and Amendment (2008), and by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (1973). The Disability Resource Center (DRC) provides reasonable accommodations so otherwise qualified students with disabilities may, as independently as possible, meet the demands of university life.
For accommodation requests, contact the DRC at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send requests at least four weeks in advance of NSO.
