3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I liked living on campus, but at times it was difficult. Some housing is far from campus, and other housing is just too small. The newest housing has cozy apartments, but doesn't allow for much of an open, social atmosphere amongst people on the same floor. The dorm housing is very social, but doesn't have enough storage space, and is less clean.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus my freshman year, and this was before they had finished construction on the Heritage Halls project. Though my building was a few decades old and there were six of us to one bathroom and a rather tight kitchen/living room, I loved the relationship we had with each other and roommates and the others in our building. Now, I have had a chance to see the improvements made as other friends have lived in the new housing options. They are extremely spacious, clean, close to campus and still have a pretty strong community about them.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: The Residence Halls Association puts on incredible activities that are a blast!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Heritage Halls dorms are excellent. They are clean and have all the amenities.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms lend themselves to socializing and making friends. Helaman Halls has a set up such that girls can easily socialize with girls and guys with guys. However, the way visiting hours are set up in Helaman, it is less than easy to make friends with those of the opposite gender

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.
