All housing is Plum Village is communal. Most living areas and all rooms are shared, to encourage community living and mutual support in our practice.
If a room with two beds for a couple is too expensive, you may consider staying separately in the single-sex dormitories (for men at Upper Hamlet and for women in Lower Hamlet or New Hamlet). See housing preferences below.
