Contracting Information

Contracting Process

  • Students should read all the instructions BEFORE beginning the contracting process.
  • Students who are engaged or married at the time they sign an agreement for a dwelling should note the following:
    • Both Part 1 and Part 2 must be submitted before the agreement will be complete.
    • Part 1 should be submitted by the prospective tenant who is or will be enrolled in classes at the university. This is the person whose university account will be billed each month.
    • Part 2 must be submitted by the spouse/fiancé(e) before the 24 hour hold expires.
    • The same person cannot submit both Part 1 and Part 2 of the agreement, as both spouses are required to jointly complete the agreement. This requires both spouses to have a valid, working NetID.
    • Both prospective tenants should make sure they can log in to myBYU before beginning the contracting process. Click here to create a NetID.
  • Students who are single parents with dependent(s) only need to submit Part 1 of the agreement.
