3 College Senior

Campus Housing: From secondhand experience, not actually living in the dorms, but having a girlfriend and other friends who lived there, the dorms are right in the middle of campus so you are about as close as you can get to all your classes. Because the rules are a bit more strict there it is cleaner and you get good service from your managers.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Each housing complex has weekly clean checks so to keep clean homes throughout each semester. There are many options to choose from with excellent housing fees that will work with you depending on your financial situation.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: Most people that go to school here do not live on campus. On campus living is like living with your parents. The white glove checks and the housing people make living in the dorms miserable.

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.
