The residence hall facilities, also known as Hale

(pronounced hah lay)
, are designed to maximize social interaction between students in an environment that is conducive to high academic achievement.

Room and board services are provided in 10 residence halls. Separate halls are designated for men and women. Each residence hall is designed as a two or three-story structure built in a rectangular format with an inner courtyard.

The residence halls are a center for campus activities with lounges provided for students to watch their favorite television shows, do classwork on a computer, study for an exam, play the piano, or just talk.

Before Arriving

  • Before arriving, please follow this link to read the Residential Life Single Student Housing Handbook.

    Our Handbook provides a suggested packing list of items to bring or purchase. Please refer to BYU–Hawaii’s Dress and Grooming Standards when selecting clothing to bring.

Secondary Housing

  • Residential Life has arranged for a limited amount of secondary spaces in our hales for students unable to secure a standard bed space. Secondary housing contracts will be offered after all available standard spaces have been booked.

    Students will be assigned to a space in secondary housing for the start of the semester. As soon as a standard residential space becomes available, a standard assignment will be made.

    The secondary room rate will be comparable to an on-campus space. However, once the student receives a standard assignment, the rate will be adjusted accordingly.
  • Secondary rooms are located throughout the hales. Depending on the number of students needing secondary housing, students in secondary housing will be placed in a room with five to 10 other residents.

    These rooms have three to four bunk beds each. There is very limited storage in secondary rooms and students are expected to live out of their suitcases.

    All students will have access to a bathroom facility. Because secondary housing does not have access to a kitchen, a Silver or Gold Meal Plan is required.
  • Students in secondary rooms are given standard rooms following housing cancellations. Rooms become available at varying times. Students may be assigned a standard bed space before arrival or may stay in the secondary room until the next semester. Students assigned to secondary spaces will be eligible to book a standard room for the next semester.

    Conditions for Secondary Housing:


    • The secondary room rate will be comparable to an on-campus space. However, once the student receives a standard assignment, the rate will be adjusted accordingly.
    • Students in secondary housing will be required to move to standard spaces if vacancies exist in the Hales.
    • Students in secondary housing will be required to purchase a Silver or Gold Meal Plan.

Spring and Summer Consolidation

The spring and summer have much fewer students living in the hales. To accommodate summer programs, maintenance, and repairs: major room reassignments are required.

  • In order to uphold the quality and condition of the Hales, regular maintenance and repairs are necessary. Certain hales may be closed during the spring and summer periods in order to allow for these renovations to take place.

    The University often hosts summer programs that require on-campus housing. To increase efficiency and organization. Students may be consolidated to certain hales or floors to accommodate these visitors.
  • Consolidation is determined by the number of residents who renew their contracts. If demand for more space is given, the Residential Life and Housing Operations departments may determine a need to leave one or more of the closing Hales open. It is very important for residents to renew their contract if they are considering living on-campus for the spring semester and/or summer break.
  • Students will be notified once the Residential Life and Housing Operations departments determine which hales need to be closed for maintenance and repair. If you happen to live in one of these hales, you will have the opportunity to renew your contract and then change your room during Change Room Week.

    It is very important that you first renew your contract!
  • Freshman residents who are residing in Hales that are closing will be able to change their rooms to either dorm-style or apartment-style, even if they are still freshmen!

    Apartment style Hales will give you access to a kitchen which means you will not be required to purchase a meal plan.

    If your Hale is closing, you will be able to move to apartment style Hales as long as there are spaces available. Change room is done on a first-come, first-serve basis.

    Please note that Hale 10 is only available for women with 55+ credits.

Single On-Campus Housing FAQs

  • The $50 non-refundable application is the fee that we require to be able to process your application to live in our on-campus housing. This fee is required at the beginning of each academic year or the first time you apply to live on campus. Meaning that it will be required before the fall semester of every year unless you renew your contract for the current bed space that you are living in.
  • A few private rooms are available. There is an additional cost for these rooms. Please contact the Residential Life office for more information on private rooms.
  • We do not provide early check-ins or late check-outs. Please contact the Residential Life office for more information on early check-ins and check-outs.
  • Students can live off campus with an immediate family member. Family members include mother, father, maternal or paternal aunts or uncles, or maternal or paternal grandparents. Family exemptions are for students who live in the Laie or the surrounding community. Students are given a letter that they must fill out and return to us either through email or bringing it into the office. After submitting it to housing, the off-campus department will approve or deny your request. Other circumstances that might require a student to live off-campus in non-approved student housing would need to be appealed through the housing portal by hitting "Submit an Appeal".
  • When putting in a roommate preference make sure that you and the roommate you want to live with put each other's name or your request will not be considered. However, there are no guarantees that incoming freshman will be assigned a room with the person they requested but the Hale Coordinators will consider it as they assign rooms and roommates.
  • Apartment-style hales, or hales that have a kitchen in it, are reserved for upperclassmen that have reached a certain amount of credits required to live in these hales.
  • If you need help while living in the Hales, the Resident Adviser or the Hale Coordinators will be able to assist you. The Resident Advisers have an office inside the Hale and their office hours and number are posted outside the door. If it is an emergency you can call the on-call phone.
  • 55-220 Kulanui St. Bldg. 5 Laie, HI 96762
  • No pets are allowed to be kept on the BYUH campus.
  • A Resident Adviser is someone whose job is to help you and assist you during your time in the Hales. They are experienced university students that can help you get adjusted to university life. They are also there to help you spiritually, physically, and mentally. There are 4-6 Resident Advisers in each of the Hales.
  • As a freshman, you are required to be on campus. You will need to speak with your landlord in order to cancel your off-campus contract. If you do not move on campus, you will be reported to the university for not obeying university policy. Only freshman living with immediate family members are permitted to live off-campus.
  • If you are admitted as a freshman, you are ineligible to live off-campus until you have lived on-campus for three consecutive semesters. If you have transfer credits, your eligibility is based on the number of credits transferred. You need to have transferred with a minimum of 24 post-high school credits to be eligible to live off-campus. You may consult with the Residential Life office to confirm whether or not you can live off-campus.
  • You are more than welcome to have a car here on the BYUH campus. You can park almost anywhere on campus as long as you have a parking pass. Visit the Security office, located at the back of the McKay Building, to pay for your parking pass.
