Waiting List Information

Waiting Lists

  • Waiting lists are for students who would like a bedspace that is not currently available.
  • As bedspaces become available, BYU Campus Accommodations will offer them to students on the waiting list according to their waiting list position and preferences.
  • Positions on the waiting list are based on the completion date of a student’s admissions application. Students do not gain priority based on when they add themselves to the waiting list.
  • Positions on the waiting list are based on the date and time students sign up for housing or add themselves to the waiting list.
  • Students who add themselves to the waiting list are not guaranteed an on-campus bedspace.
  • BYU Campus Accommodations is unable to tell students their position on the waiting list.
  • Students with more specific waiting list preferences are less likely to match with a bedspace opening.

Waiting List Availablity Dates

  • Students do not need to add their names to the waiting list right at the time listed as their positions on the waiting list will be based on the date they submitted their completed admission applications. The waiting list for each agreement period for 18 and Under Housing will be open beginning on the following dates:
    • Spring 2021: April 6, 2021 at 3:00 PM Provo Time
    • Summer 2021: April 6, 2021 at 3:00 PM Provo Time
    • Fall-Winter 2021-2022: April 6, 2021 at 3:00 PM Provo Time
    • Winter 2022: TBD

Using the Waiting List

  • Students may add themselves to the waiting list through the waiting list page.
  • Students who have a preferred roommate will be unable to add themselves to the waiting list.
  • Students who are added to the waiting list will receive a confirmation on the message board under the "Account" tab.
  • Students may update their preferences by resubmitting a Waiting List Request with the updated preferences (the student will retain their previous waiting list position).
  • When the student’s waiting list position has been reached and a bedspace matching the student’s preferences becomes available, the student will receive a message via each of the email addresses and phone numbers provided in their waiting list submission.
  • Notification of openings are sent Monday through Friday during the hours of 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
  • Students have four hours from the time they receive notification of an opening to accept a bedspace on hold and complete the agreement.
  • If an agreement for the bedspace is not completed in the allotted time, the hold on that bedspace will expire. Students cannot complete an agreement for an expired bedspace.
  • Students are removed from the waiting list when their hold expires. Students with expired holds must resubmit their Waiting List Request in order to be considered for additional openings (there is no limit to the number of times students can resubmit their Waiting List Request).
  • Tenants who submit a Waiting List Request do not forfeit their current agreement unless they contract for a new bedspace, in which case their previous agreement and payments transfer over to the new agreement.

Group Requests

  • Group accommodations may be requested by each member of the group sending a message to BYU Campus Accommodations through the student’s Housing Account. The message should include the NetIDs of each group member as well as the semester or term the request is for. All group members should add themselves to the waiting list.
  • Deferred returning missionaries will be permitted to add their name to the waiting list, but they should note that the ability to add their name to the waiting list has no bearing on their admission status.
