3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live off of campus, but I hear that it is good.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't the cheapest place to live in town, but they aren't the most expensive either. I lived on campus my first two semesters and it was really nice. The dorms are not co-ed, so girls have their own complex's and boys have their own. All dorms have two shared bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, and bathroom. There is one dorm complex that does not have a kitchen, and there are three shared bedrooms. The school just announced the construction of new dorms on campus and they look really nice. Everything is close by in the dorms, you can walk anywhere on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its a good place to start off, right on campus, and everything is easily accessible to you. but i cannot see myself living here for an extended period of time! (they are also demolishing these buildings and are building other ones elsewhere!)

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are many options available and for the most part management is great and willing to work with students.

Campus housing is a little unique at BYU-Idaho because no matter where students live, their apartment complex must be designated as approved housing. This means their housing abides by the honor code, and all tenants of approved housing are registered BYU-I students, even though the school doesn’t own all student-approved housing complexes. However, most students make a distinction between campus housing and off-campus housing as being dorms versus apartments. The dorms are located at the center of campus near the Taylor Building and MC. Many freshmen choose to live in dorms their first couple of semesters and then after that select an apartment near the buildings they frequent for classes.

The dorms are much less roomy than most apartments, but they allow students to get a little more involved with the social atmosphere of BYU-I student life. Since many underclassmen have several general classes located all over campus, living in the dorms offers the benefit of close proximity to all campus buildings. Dorm residents are also better able to take advantage of the on-campus activities offered to students because they’re so close to everything.
