Fall 2022 Single On-campus Housing Process

Eligibility
Fall 2022 Housing
Current Hale Residents
Newly Admitted Students
Sponsored Students: iWork, PAS, Hukilau, Robert Gay, AEMP
Returning or Off-campus Students

There will be very limited on-campus housing options for the 2022-23 academic year. It is important for students to be informed of the proper process they should follow to secure on-campus housing and the appropriate deadlines. Students that do not engage in the correct process by the appropriate deadlines will have a lower likelihood of being able to find housing.

Housing availability and processes will be determined by your admission and student type. Select your student type on the tabs above to determine your specific process. We understand that this process is complex. If you need any help determining which process you should engage in, please contact Residential Life through email, housing@byuh.edu, or by phone at (808) 675-3534.

Information for all Students seeking Single On-campus Housing

Application Fee

All interested students must pay a non-refundable $50 hale application fee to apply for single student on-campus housing. The fee will be charged to your student account after you have signed a contract within seven business days. Once posted to your student account, you may make a payment online.

To make a payment, please follow the instructions on the BYUH Financial Services How to Make a Payment Online page. Unpaid fees will result in a hold placed on your account that could prevent registration.

Check-in Week

Students with a contract may check in any day during their Check-in Week (See below). Students will not be permitted to check in earlier or later than their Check-in Week. Students may make travel arrangements to arrive during their check-in week as soon as they sign a contract.

Sponsored (iWork, PAS, Hukilau, Robert Gay, AEMP) Resident Check-In Week: August 15-30, 2022

A nightly rate will be charged to a student's account if they check-in before the contract start date: August 22, 2022.

New Resident Check-In Week: August 22-30, 2022

Reserving a Check-in Appointment

All students must check in during Hale office hours: Monday-Friday, 9 am-6 pm. After being assigned a room, students must book a Check-in Appointment. The number of check-ins allowed per hour will be limited. If your desired check-in time is booked, please select the next available time slot.

Limited 'After Hours' check-ins may be available for international students with limited flight availability.

What if my family will be dropping me off?

Families and friends traveling with their students are permitted to help their students check in. If you will have help at check-in, please make sure to indicate how many will be arriving when booking your Check-in Appointment.

Housing availability and the processes will be determined by student type. Return to the tabs at the top of the page to determine what process you should follow.

Sponsored students (iWork, PAS, Hukilau, Robert Gay) living in the hales for the Spring 2022 Semester will have the opportunity to Renew their Contract in the month of May if they need to live in the hales for the Summer and/or Fall 2022 Semester.

Fall 2022 Single On-Campus Housing Waitlist

As with the 2021-22 academic year, there will be very limited housing options. Students wanting to secure on-campus housing for the Fall 2022 Semester can apply for the Fall 2022 Single On-campus Housing Waitlist on the Housing Portal. The waitlist will open on May 1.

How to Apply to Waitlist

  1. Sign on to the Housing Portal.
  2. Go to "Secure Housing." 
  3. Select "Hales." 
  4. Click "Apply to Waitlist."
  5. Complete application. Do not forget to click finish! 

If you have completed it correctly, you will receive a confirmation email.

Sorting Groups

Students who apply to the waitlist will be sorted into the following ‘sorting groups’:
Group 1: Sponsored students. This excludes sponsored students who have a spring 2022 semester contract.

Group 2: Non-Sponsored full-time students with a Spring 2022 on-campus housing contract. This includes students who took a reduced course load or were on an on-island internship. This excludes sponsored students who have a spring 2022 semester contract.

Group 3: Fall 2022 semester admits. This includes all transfer students, former students, and first-year students who missed the Reserve a Room process.

Group 4: Students admitted prior to fall 2022. This includes students who took a leave of absence for the Spring 2022 Semester or deferred.

Group 5: Sponsored spring 2022 semester residents who missed the renew contract process.

Credit Requirement

Along with the sorting groups above, you must be registered as a full-time student (twelve credits with at least one face-to-face credit) for the Fall 2022 Semester AT THE TIME OF INVITATIONS in order to be eligible to be invited. Waitlisted classes do not count toward the credit total.

You do not have to register at the time of application, but you must be registered by the time of invitations. We know you cannot register for classes until your open date, but we want you to be prepared to register as soon as possible.

What does that mean? 

  • Make sure you have no holds on your account that would prevent you from registering. 
  • Plan your semester out with your MAP or an academic advisor

New international students required to take an EIL test before registering will be registered in a placeholder class that will qualify as full-time credits. If you are a new international student required to take an EIL test and are not registered in this class by June 10, 2022, please contact your academic advisor.

Remember!

  • Waitlisted classes do not count toward the credit total.
  • If you are below twelve credits because you are graduating in the Fall 2022 Semester, request a Reduced Course Load Form through HANDSHAKE experiences. For more information, visit the following website.

Deadlines and ‘Waves’

Applications will be collected in ‘waves.’ Students who apply during that ‘wave’ will be prioritized by the sorting groups listed above.

First Wave: Applications received between May 1-31, 2022.

Second Wave: Applications received between June 1-30, 2022.

Third Wave: Applications received on or after July 1, 2022. Limited—based on cancellations, very unlikely to be invited. To secure housing, you may have to find someone selling their contract after August 1, 2022.

First Wave invitations will be sent out starting June 14, 2022. We will continue to offer any openings in on-campus housing until the week of check-ins.

After August 1, students selling their contracts will be required to find an eligible replacement on their own.

Students who are not offered a space during their wave will automatically be re-sorted in the next wave.

Off-campus Housing

Students looking for off-campus housing must find contracts on their own.

Room-type Eligibility

If you are offered a spot in on-campus housing, your offered room type will be first based on your eligibility, then on availability. Because housing is so limited, your ideal room and room type may not be available.

Apartment-style: upperclassmen or mature freshmen/first-year.
Dorm-style: freshmen/first-year.

Invitation Process

The waitlist will be sorted by the following criteria:

  1. Credit requirement (yes or no).
  2. Sorting group.
  3. Date of application.

If you meet the criteria and there is availability in a room you are eligible for, you will be sent an invitation to your go.byuh.edu email. Students will have 48 hours to accept the offer. Invitations are sent out on Tuesdays by 3 pm HST and the deadline to respond is Thursday at 3 pm HST.

Once you receive an email, you will have access to accept the offer online on the Housing Portal. You will not have access until you receive the email. We will always email your BYUH email. Please make sure your BYUH email is working BEFORE the invitation period. For email issues, please fill out an IT service request.

We will continue to send invitations each week if there are any availabilities.

First wave invitations (applications received May 1-31) to single on-campus housing will start on June 14, 2022.

Remember!

  • Invitations are sent to your go.byuh.edu email address.
  • You will only have 48 hours to respond, so check your emails regularly! 

If you miss the deadline to accept your invitation but are still interested in housing, you will need to re-apply. You will have a new date and wave.

Temporary Overflow On-campus Housing

Once all available permanent spaces have been offered, we will invite students to temporary overflow on-campus housing.

If you are offered temporary housing, you will be assigned to a space in temporary housing for the start of the semester. As soon as a standard residential space becomes available, a permanent assignment will be made. The temporary room rate will be comparable to an on-campus space. However, once the student receives a permanent assignment, the rate will be adjusted accordingly.

Conditions for Temporary Overflow Housing

  • The temporary room rate will be comparable to an on-campus space. Once the student is assigned a permanent space, the rate will be adjusted accordingly. 
  • Students in temporary housing will be required to move to permanent spaces if vacancies exist in the hales.

Reserve a Room

Single students who are admitted as new freshmen or first-year students for the Fall 2022 Semester may complete a housing application with the Reserve a Room process to secure housing. The process will be open starting May 1 and close on July 1.

Newly admitted sponsored students will receive an email to secure housing once they have access to Reserve a Room. Those that receive an email must complete the Reserve a Room process before July 1.

Housing availability is limited. Once freshmen and first-year student housing has been filled, students may apply to the Reserve a Room Waitlist.

Housing Assignments

After the reserve a room deadline, the housing assignment coordinator will assign students based on their check-in date and length of quarantine.
Freshmen and first-year students typically are assigned to first-year dorm residence halls without kitchens and are therefore required to have a meal plan. There are no requests for specific buildings or rooms.

How to Reserve a Room

  1. Log on to the Housing Portal.
  2. Select 'Secure Housing.'
  3. Select 'Hales.'
  4. Select 'Reserve a Room' and complete the process.

Once you have successfully reserved a room, you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not have access to the reserve a room process on the portal, you are not eligible to reserve a room.

There Are Five Parts to the 'Reserve a Room' Process

  • Update personal profile.
  • Select meal plan preference.
  • Complete a roommate matching survey.
  • Sign a Hale contract.
  • Pay $50 non-refundable application fee, charged to your student account within seven business days.
Reserve a Room Waitlist

Once all first-year student housing has been filled, students may apply to the Reserve a Room Waitlist.

How to apply to the 'Reserve a Room Waitlist'

  1. Log on to the Housing Portal.
  2. Select 'Secure Housing.'
  3. Select 'Hales.'
  4. Select 'Reserve a Room Waitlist' and complete the process. Once you have successfully applied, you will receive a confirmation email.

Openings will be offered by the date of application. Once a reservation has opened, the next student on the waitlist will receive an email with instructions on how to reserve a room and are given two days to reserve a room.

Roommates

Room assignments are based on a student's arrival date. Students will be roomed with other students arriving the same day and doing the same length of quarantine. The assignment upon arrival will be a permanent space through the end of the academic school year, and students will not be permitted to transfer.

When students fill out their housing application online they will complete a roommate matching survey, answering a series of questions regarding their living preferences. When possible, students will be assigned with someone based on their answers to the "yes and no" profile questions. Using this feature, students will hopefully be able to find and connect with their roommates and potentially forge a relationship.

If the student has a specific roommate in mind, they may create a roommate group on the Housing Portal after reserving a room. Please note that both students must give permission, be new incoming first-year students, and be eligible for the same type of quarantine to be matched. Roommate groups do not allow more than two people. There is no guarantee for roommate groups. While students may not be assigned with someone they hoped for, our campus is a small community with ample opportunity to interact outside of the residence halls.

How to Create a Roommate Group

New students can create a roommate group once they and their preferred roommate both complete the reserve a room process.

  1. Log on to the Housing Portal.
  2. Select 'Secure Housing.'
  3. Select 'Hales.'
  4. Select 'Create Group' and complete the process.

Once a student creates a group, their preferred roommate will receive a notification email. The group will be pending until the preferred roommate accepts the group invitation online.

Updating Your Application

You can update your application any time before the reserve a room deadline, July 1.

  1. Log on to the Housing Portal.
  2. Select 'Secure Housing.'
  3. Select 'Hales.'
  4. Select 'Update Application' and complete the process.

Assignment Notification

You will be sent your room assignment to your BYU–Hawaii email approximately one month after the deadline. Assignments are subject to change per quarantine guidelines.

You will also get the chance to learn more about your new roommate and what they wrote for their about me and interests statements.

Renew Contract

The Renew Contract period will be available for Sponsored (iWork, PAS, Hukilau, Robert Gay, AEMP) students who are Hale residents for the Spring 2022 Semester. These students must be a full-time student for the Fall 2022 Semester to be eligible for housing and may renew their hale contract for the summer break and fall or fall only contract period.

Change Room

Every summer, residents are given the chance to change their room to any available room in the hales. Students in a dorm-style hale will have the chance to move to an apartment-style hale. Students who renew their contract for the summer break and fall or fall only contract period can change their room during Change Room Week, starting at 12 am on June 6 until June 10 at 3 pm HST.

Hale Closures and Consolidation

Some hales will be closing for summer consolidation. Depending on your current hale, you may be required to change rooms and transfer if your room will be closing. Students in this situation will be able to choose the room they will transfer to during Change Room week. Students do not choose their own room to transfer to will have their new room chosen for them. For a list and more information, go to the Housing Portal home page and click “Consolidation” at the bottom.
