Not an on-campus person?
Off-campus living can also be a great experience. When searching for off-campus living, please keep the following guidelines in mind:
+ Off-campus housing for single students must be approved. Make sure that your landlord lists the apartment as BYU approved.
+ Start looking for housing now! Search listings online or even on Facebook before you come to BYU.
+ You can live with your family or in non-contracted housing, but you must submit an Off-Campus Housing Waiver by the add/drop deadline (6 days after class starts).

Meal Plans If you eat food, this is for you!
Why have a BYU Meal Plan? It’s important to take care of your body so you can perform well and be happy. Meal Plans are quick, easy, and include dining locations all over campus. Meal plans can help students living in apartment-style housing to balance their expenses on food.
+ It is required for students living in Helaman Halls to purchase a meal plan.
About Meal Plans
Most meal plans give you various amounts of Dining Dollars. Dining Dollars are the currency of BYU Dining and can be used at all Dining locations (except Campus Floral and Concessions). Other meal plans allow students entrance to the Cannon Center, a buffet experience.
When you buy a plan, the funds will show up on your BYU ID card. Check your meal plan balance online at My Dining Account or on the BYU App.
