Personalizing Your Space

We want you to feel at home in the residence hall. See below for ways in which you can personalize your room and check out our What to Bring suggestions.

Residence Hall Life

It is suggested that scotch tape or tack gum be used to adhere decorations to residence hall rooms. Things not to use to hang decorations are masking tape, duct tape, or nails. You may be charged at the end of the year for any holes or tape residue left in residence hall rooms.


Plants are a nice way to add color and personality to your residence hall room. Fish are allowed in the Residence Halls in aquariums or 20 gallons or less. No other animals are allowed at any time.


Lofts are not allowed in residence hall rooms. Additionally, due to safety reasons, beds are not allowed to be placed on bed risers. However, a majority the beds on campus include an adjustable height feature.


Turn your room into a comforting home away from home with the Residence Hall Linens Program. Residence Life at Cal Lutheran has partnered with Residence Hall Linens for several years to provide families and students with a convenient, affordable way to ensure you have everything you need for life on campus. The extra long sheets and bedding products are guaranteed to fit all of the beds on campus and there are matching towels and even storage items available to help make the transition to college life easier. All products are guaranteed until graduation, and shipping is free for all Value Pak orders. Cal Lutheran receives proceeds from every order placed through this program. Parents and students who have taken advantage of this opportunity in previous years recommend placing your order early, since popular colors and patterns sell out quickly.
