Parents & Families

Congratulations to both you and your student and welcome to Puget Sound! We know that finding the right college is a process that involves the whole family and we've gathered helpful information to help you support your student's journey ahead.

At Puget Sound, you'll find that learning extends beyond the classroom, and into many of the other activities and resources on campus. We like to say that a Puget Sound education is not something you get—it's something you do.

Housing

The Puget Sound campus living environment provides abundant resources and support for academic, social, civic, and community life. First-year students typically live in a coed residence hall with single gender community bathrooms. Students live in rooms designed to accommodate one, two, or three roommates. Residence halls feature common areas with kitchen facilities, televisions, piano lounges, study and recreational areas. Rooms include extended length twin-sized beds, chest of drawers, bookcase, and a closet or wardrobe.
