Campus Housing

Campus Housing: Honestly, living in New Heritage on campus housing at BYU is the best! It is a fabulously spacious and clean and updated place to live/ I loved the apartment and the buildings are really well-maintained. Only downside is that its a ten minute walk from most of campus and sometimes the atmosphere in New Heritage can be kind of antisocial because everyone has their own space, whereas in Helaman everyone gets to know everyone. But it's a great deal for what you're paying I would recommend New Heritage on campus living to anyone!

Campus Housing: The housing has been undergoing intense rebuilding, and I was in the last generation of the old housing. They were a noticeably old, but the social atmosphere was wonderful and very close. Appropriate standards enforcement made for a pleasant environment, and the new upgraded housing provides more spacious accommodations.

Closeness to campus was a perk, made it possible to walk everywhere. The housing was right on the edge of campus however, making for longer trips back to the apartment.

Campus Housing: One great thing about BYU is that they offer on-campus housing for freshman students. I feel as if by providing this housing option for new students it allows the students to enter the new school year feeling comfortable and at ease as the campus can sometimes be a little overwhelming. For older students, on-campus housing is an option as well, but most students opt for off-campus housing as it gives these students a sense of independency. While the LDS Honor Code is a code implemented and held to a high degree by the school, as all housing facilities are contracted with the school in order to ensure safety for students, it is not something new that hinders the overall quality of the housing for BYU students.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
