4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I am only entering in a response here because I have to but I have never actually lived on campus. My wife lived on campus and she said that she loved. The social scene in on campus housing is supposed to be really great.

Campus Housing: You have a lot of fun when you are a Freshmen. After that, off campus housing is great.

Campus Housing: I only lived in on campus housing freshman year. It was fun and social, the buildings were a little old but they've redone them since I moved out. The cost wasn't too bad. It was a little stressful making sure I had a spot.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Living on campus in Heritage Halls has been an excellent experience. The buildings themselves are brand new and thus very clean, nice, updated, etc. I absolutely adore all the students there. Everyone is so kind and willing to help fellow students. There is a strong comrodere and fantastic community. While it is quite expensive to live here, it's worth it! I love having my own kitchen and large living room and dining room to spend time with friends and roommates.

Campus Housing: The cost is very comparable to off-campus housing. Although it's not as nice, the social atmosphere is great because everyone is so close together. It's also pretty easy to find housing just as long as you meet the deadlines and don't procrastinate.

BYU on-campus housing has mostly a freshman population-very few upperclassmen live on campus. Be sure to research the dorms and sign up early; the three complexes vary widely, and depending on what you are looking for, one may be preferable over the others. Even if you don't have a preference, early sign-up is recommended since the dorms will fill up completely, usually by early April.

While some of the dorms may be old, they are clean and well-maintained. They are small and don't offer much in the way of amenities. Deseret Towers does require using communal bathrooms. Heritage Halls gives you more of an apartment-like experience. All of the dorms have the same strict rules, and there is no getting around them. The opposite sex is only allowed in your room during visiting hours once a week, and the door must remain open. The lobbies close before midnight each night and are patrolled thereafter. However, this is more a safety measure than a Big Brother-type of thing. The dorms are very safe, so Mom and Dad won't have to worry about you during your first year.
