Housing & Transportation

Move-in dates can be found on the housing website, along with information about what to bring for your new apartment. Once you have found housing, your ward leaders will contact you.

On-Campus Housing

BYU recommends all freshmen live in on-campus housing, including those who are 19 and older. Below are some options:

  • Helaman Halls is traditional board and room style living, and requires the purchase of a meal plan.
  • Heritage Halls is apartment-style, including a kitchen, so the purchase of a meal plan is optional.
  • Wyview Park is apartment-style living for returning residents and those who turned 19 prior to January 1.
On-Campus Housing will send students an informational email regarding housing a few weeks after they receive their letter of acceptance.

There are also many off-campus housing options. The Off-Campus Housing Guide is renewed every year, and is very helpful - find it on the Off-Campus Housing website! All BYU single undergraduate students are required to live in university contracted housing unless they complete a waiver and receive approval from the Off-Campus Housing Office. Be sure to update your residential address under your Personal Information page, or you may be charged a fee.

To park on campus, you must register your vehicle. There are a few free parking lots available to students, or you can pay $60/semester for “Y” parking (typically located closer to campus). On-Campus residents don’t need to pay the fees, but do need to register their vehicle!

You can walk from one end of BYU to the other in about 20 minutes. BYU tries to be self-contained, providing grocery stores, restaurants, and even dry cleaning on campus. Within minutes, you can walk anywhere you need to be! If you are walking in the dark, consider using The Safewalk Program. Through this program, you can have a friendly BYU police officer escort you home or track your route to make sure you reach your destination safely.
