Due to technical difficulties, Residence Life needs to reduce the number of students who can contract each day.
Check your Housing Message Board for the updated contracting date and time. Assigned contracting dates and times
will continue to be based on the order of submission of admission applications. We apologize for the inconvenience
and appreciate your patience.

Newly Admitted Students Housing Checklist
2024-25

  • Living on-campus is one of the best ways for newly admitted students to build friendships and get acquainted with the life of a BYU college student. We encourage newly admitted students to read through all of the information provided on this page as well as on the webpages that are linked.

  • On-Campus Housing is available to all matriculated students regardless of marital status or age.
    • 19 and Over and Returning Residents apartments, or floors at Helaman Halls, are for those who turned 19 prior to January 1, 2024 and returning residents who have lived on-campus during the Fall and/or Winter semester of a previous academic year.

  • Newly admitted students should refer back to this page frequently for updated information.

Student Housing Policy

  • For their first two semesters as BYU students, all single undergraduate students must live (1) in BYU On-Campus Housing, (2) in BYU Off-Campus Contracted Housing, or (3) with qualifying family members. This applies to all single BYU undergraduate students, including transfer students, who are matriculated, meaning they have been admitted to a degree-seeking program. Here is a link for more information about the student housing policy.

Submit On-Campus Housing Application

  • Students seeking On-Campus Housing must complete a On-Campus Housing Application with questions regarding housing preferences and other related matters before completing an agreement.
    • The completion of the housing application is integral to BYU's preparation for accommodating students, which will streamline the housing process for all individuals. Filling out the housing application does not mean BYU has reached a decision regarding the student's admission status, nor does it influence BYU's admission decision-making process. In order to complete a housing application, a person must first submit an admission application to BYU.
    • Students do not need to wait until they are admitted to submit the housing application.
