Single On-Campus Housing Information

Winter 2022 On-campus Housing Process


As with fall semester, there will be very limited housing options for those that have not already secured a contract. Students wanting to secure on-campus housing for winter 2022 can apply for the Winter 2022 Single On-campus Housing Waitlist on the Housing Portal. The waitlist will open on October 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 will be sorted into the following groups:

Group 1: Students who have deferred with the Office of the Registrar through the fall 2021 deferment process read the How to Defer page.
Group 2: Current students on a university-approved (for credit) internship for fall 2021.
Group 3: Winter 2022 admits
Group 4: Current fall 2021 students living off-campus. Off-campus contracts should be submitted to the Residential Life office to qualify for this group. Please note, it is unlikely that you will be offered a contract for winter 2022. While you may apply for on-campus housing, it is a risk to give up your off-campus contract.
Group 5: Current Hale residents who have missed the renew contract deadline. Please note, if you missed the renewal deadline, it is highly unlikely that you will be offered a contract for winter 2022. If you are offered, you will be automatically booked in the same bed space. Missing the renew contract deadline does not allow for room changes.

These sorting groups are designed to facilitate success for those that have been waiting to come to campus the longest.

Credit Requirement

Along with the Sorting Groups above, you must be registered as a full-time student (12 credits with at least one face-to-face credit) for winter 2022 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 12-credit placeholder class. If you are a new international student and are not registered in this class by October 1, please contact your academic advisor.

Remember!

  • Waitlisted classes do not count toward the credit total.
  • If you are below credits because you are graduating in Winter 2022, fill out a Reduced Course Load Form with your academic advisor and submit it to the appropriate office (domestic—Office of the Registrar, international—ISS).

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 October 1-14 Highest chance of being invited.
Second Wave: Applications received between October 15-31
Third Wave: Applications received between November 1-December 1. Limited—based on cancellations, very unlikely to be invited. To secure housing, you may have to find someone selling their contract after December 1.

First Wave invitations will be sent out starting October 19. We will continue to offer any openings in on-campus housing until December 1.

After December 1, students selling their contracts will be required to find an eligible replacement on their own. Unclaimed contracts will be for sale on the housing portal, on a first-come, first-served basis.

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.

The university has converted several faculty homes to women's single-student housing close to campus. Once on-campus housing is filled, we will offer these off-campus spaces to those on the waitlist who qualify for the housing. Background checks may be required.

How do I qualify?

We will be offering these spaces to women already on the on-campus housing waitlist. You must be registered as a full-time student and be an upperclassman. This off-campus housing is designated for students willing to be responsible tenants and community members.

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, we will not be taking preferences into account.

Apartment style: upperclassmen or mature freshmen
Dorm style: freshmen
Womens off-campus housing: upperclassmen

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 October 1-14) to single on-campus housing will start on October 19.

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.

Single Student Freshman and Transfer Housing Policy

  • Single students who are admitted as a freshman or first-year students are required to live on campus for three semesters in freshman style housing.

    If you have completed credits before graduating from high school you are considered a first-year student and are required to live on campus for three semesters in freshman style housing.
  • If you are a single student admitted with credits completed after high school graduation at a different school, you are considered a transfer student. If you have attended BYUH before, left for two or more semesters, and had to re-apply to BYUH you are a returning student. Students on LOA or internship ARE NOT considered returning students.

    If you have completed:

    • Completed between 1-12 credits* after high school graduation you are required to live on campus for two semesters.
    • Completed between 12.1 and 24 credits** after high school graduation, you are required to live on campus for one semester.
    • Returning or transfer students with more than 24 credits completed after high school graduation are eligible for off-campus or on-campus upperclassmen housing. On-campus, upperclassmen housing is based on availability.
    *Credits must be completed and posted to your BYU–Hawaii account by the RSVP deadline for the semester attending.

    **Completed credits are credits that have been earned, credits that are in progress may not count if they are not completed by the RSVP deadline.

    ***This policy only pertains to single students without dependents under the age of 25.
  • As of March 1, 2021, all students admitted before fall 2021 are exempt from this policy and are not required to live in on-campus housing. This provides these students more options, allowing them to qualify for both on and off-campus housing.

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.

Fall residents who renew their contract or book a room for the winter semester are required to book the winter break also and pay any associated fees. There are no exceptions. The Residential Life department does not offer a check out option for continuing residents. Residents who have a winter booking may reside and/or leave their belongings in their room during this break. Residents who do not reside in the room or who check out of the room but are returning for the next semester are responsible for the winter break fee.

Amenities


There are two main types of residence halls: dorm-style or apartment-style. The majority of rooms are double occupancy (shared rooms). Limited private rooms are available.

Dorm-style

hales are halls with no kitchen access and are required to purchase a meal plan. Freshmen are typically assigned to dorm-style housing.

Apartment-style

hales are halls with a kitchen located within each apartment, shared with 3-7 other residents.

Furnishings

All rooms are furnished with draperies, single beds, desks, chairs, closets, wastebaskets, and sets of drawers.
Apartment-style hales also include a fridge, stove, and dining room set.

Bathroom Facilities

Bathroom facilities are designed for single boarding students with a busy college schedule, and individuals in adjoining rooms share central bathroom facilities. There are no private-only bathroom facilities.

Wifi

Wifi internet access is provided in each hale.

Laundry

Card operated laundry facilities are located within each hale and are shared with all of the building's residents. A debit or credit card is required to operate machines. As of January 2020, the cost per load is 75 cents.

Heating/Cooling System

There are no ceiling fans or air-conditioning in the hales. Students may wish to bring a small electric fan, or purchase one on arrival, to aid ventilation.

Before Arriving

  • Before arriving, please follow this link to read the Residential Life Single Student Housing Handbook.
  • Homes are typically much smaller in Hawaii, so please be aware that your room on-campus and off-campus can only reasonably accommodate about two suitcases worth of personal items during your stay here at BYU–Hawaii.

    ***Packages CANNOT be mailed before you arrive on-campus. Please do not send anything before you arrive.***

    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.
  • You must schedule a check-in before you arrive on-campus. When you receive your assignment, you will be sent an invitation to book a check-in. There will be limited spaces in each time slot, so book as soon as you can!

    Students may not check-in before the first day of the check-in period. The Hale offices will be open from 9 am until 6 pm. The last day to check in is the day before the first day of school.
  • If you are checking in after 6 pm, you can book an After Hours Check-In.
  • Freshmen are required to attend New Student Experience (Orientation). If you are not a freshman and you are planning to check in after the first day, please contact our office at housing@byuh.edu to request a late check-in date.
  • Students are responsible for finding their own ride to campus.

    If you do not have a ride yet, a shuttle for BYU–Hawaii students, faculty, staff, and families is provided by our partner North Shore Express. The rate is $55 per person for BYU–Hawaii students, faculty, staff, and families 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You must make a reservation online at their website, northshoreexpress.net, or by calling them at (808) 892-1614.

    For more information on the shuttle, please visit the North Shore Express website.

Check-In

When you arrive on campus, you will see signs directing you to the Hales. To check in, please proceed directly to the hale you have reserved a room in.
  • If you are lost, the Aloha Center Information Desk has volunteers ready to answer any questions.

    Campus Map

    A R.A. will take you to your room, where you will take inventory of your room and complete an inventory check-in list. Please ensure you make an accurate accounting of your room including any damage. This same check-in form will be used when you check out, any damage to the room, unit or bathrooms will be your responsibility at check out if it is not indicated on the form. You will have 1 week after you check in to report any damage that you missed upon check-in.
  • Whether you live in Hawaii or are arriving here for the first time, our New Student Experience (NSE) program is going to help you have fun and is a helpful introduction to BYU–Hawaii. NSE takes place both the week before and the first week of school. We have a variety of events planned that will help you get a feel for life in Hawaii, make new friends, and get academically prepared for your upcoming classes.

    Check out the New Student Experience schedule to see a list of upcoming activities and events. Don't forget to RSVP!
  • You can find your ward information on our Wards & Stakes page.
  • As a new-incoming student, your room is only booked by the Residential Life office for your first semester. You are responsible to reserve your housing for any further semesters. During the first month of school, you will have the opportunity to renew your contract for the next semester and reserve the spot you want to live in. Freshmen are required to live on-campus for three semesters. More information on Renew Contract Week will be provided once you arrive on campus.

  • Benefits of On-Campus Club Dining:
    Eating at BYUH's Club Dining is a great opportunity to meet new friends over a delicious meal. With a Meal Plan you don't have to worry about buying groceries or washing dishes. It is a great way to get more meals for less money. Students may choose between a Gold, Silver or Block meal plan to suit their needs.

    Requirements:
    Freshmen are assigned to dormitory-style housing and will not have access to a kitchen. Students living in dormitory-style housing are required to have either a Gold or Silver meal plan.

    You will be able to choose a Meal Plan upon booking your room. Any changes or questions concerning Meal Plans should be addressed to Food Services.

Cancelling Your Contract

  • Residents who would like to terminate their contract can post their contract for sale through their Housing Portal. Processing and Late Termination Fees will apply if you decide to sell your contract and it is replaced. If your contract is not replaced, you will be held liable to the full terms of the contract.

    1. Sign on to the Housing Portal
    2. Click ‘Manage Housing’
    3. Click ‘Sell Semester Contract’
    4. Complete Process
    A $25 processing fee will automatically be applied to the resident's account. If they post their contract after the Late Termination Deadline, they should attempt to replace the contract on their own through advertising their contract and finding another eligible student to purchase the contract.

    Freshmen/First-Year Students: Because they are required to live on-campus, freshmen and first-year students, as defined by the Residential Life Policy, are required to discontinue from school before their request to sell is approved.

    The Housing Office will process and post the contract within 7 working days of the sale request. Additional fees may be associated with the sell, depending on when the contract is posted for sale. See below for more information.

    Processing and Late Termination Fees


    Sale Submitted Date Termination Fees
    More than 60 days before the start of the contract (as of the first day of that month) $25 Processing Fee
    As of the date above and the contract is replaced before the start of the contract $25 Processing Fee + $250 Late Termination Fee
    As of the date above and the contract is replaced after the start of the contract $25 Processing Fee + $250 Late Termination Fee + Rent prorated to the date of replacement
    As of the date above and the contract is NOT replaced $25 Processing Fee + Full terms of the contract

    If the contract cannot be replaced, the residents will remain financially responsible for the full terms of the contract. The resident will be responsible to pay the full amount for the room and meals even if he/she may not physically reside there or use the meals. Transcripts will be held for non-payment.
  • A replacement occurs when an eligible student buys a contract that is being sold by a resident. If a contract is replaced, the seller of the contract will be charged the associated processing and late termination fees.
  • An eligible buyer is an admitted Full-time BYUH Student (with at least 1 face-to-face class) not in contract with BYUH On or Off-Campus Housing.
  • Before the first day of the semester (or first housing day for summer break) contracts are room assignment specific. The contract is considered replaced if the resident’s specific room assignment is taken over by another student.

    Accessible Rooms: If the university wishes to place another resident into a room that is being sold, the university must buy the contract from the resident, and the new resident will assume responsibility for the contract. If the room being sold is an accessible room and the university needs the room to accommodate another resident due to need, the university is not required to buy the contract. The resident selling the contract will be reassigned to a comparable room and will assume responsibility to sell the new specific room assignment instead.

    If you do not have a suggested eligible buyer, the Residential Life Office will post your room online for other students to book within 7 working days of the sale request.

    You cannot suggest a buyer after the sale is processed because the room is already posted online for others to book. If you do find a buyer after, please have them contact our office with your specific bed space and we can help them secure housing if there are rooms available.

    If you suggest an eligible buyer at the time of the sale request, your contract will be made available to the Buyer and they will have 2 working days to buy the contract. If the Buyer does not buy the contract within the 2 working days, the bed space will be posted online for others to book.

    We advise students to advertise their contract by word of mouth or on social media. You may post on the Official Residential Life Facebook Page or other unofficial pages, such as BYUH Off-Campus Housing (Unofficial) or Buy/Sell @ North Shore Community and BYUH.

    REMEMBER TO ADVERTISE THE SPECIFIC BEDSPACE, because before the first day of the semester (or first housing day for summer break) contracts are room assignment specific and your contract will not be considered replaced until the specific bed space is booked.

    A resident who is unable to sell their contract should expect to check-out if he/she will not reside there, as it will terminate their responsibility for the physical condition of the room for the duration of the contract.
  • Contracts are no longer room assignment specific. The university reserves the right to use the room as needed. If the university reallocates your room after the first day of the semester or break, the contract is not considered replaced by the university.

    A replacement will be handled on a first-requested-first-replaced basis. For example: If all rooms in the residence halls were filled except one, the resident who requested to sell their contract last will not have their contract replaced. Contracts are gender specific.

    If you suggest an eligible buyer, your contract will be made available to the Buyer and they will have 2 working days to buy the contract.

    A resident who is unable to sell their contract should expect to check-out if he/she will not reside there, as it will terminate their responsibility for the physical condition of the room for the duration of the contract. The resident will have 7 days to vacate the bed space. The resident may not occupy the bed space past the 7 days once the request to sell has been submitted.

Temporary Housing

  • BYUH Housing has arranged for a limited amount of temporary spaces in our Hales for students unable to secure a permanent bed space. Temporary housing contracts will be available to sign via the Housing Portal through the Reserve a Room process.

    Students 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 at the lowest advertised rate on-campus. However, once the student receives a permanent assignment, the rate will be adjusted accordingly.
  • Temporary rooms are located throughout the Hales. Depending on the number of students needing temporary housing, students in temporary housing will be placed in a room with 5-7 other residents.

    These rooms have 3-4 bunk beds each or a mattress pad for floor sleeping. There is very limited storage in temporary rooms and students are expected to live out of their suitcases.

    All students will have access to a bathroom facility. A Silver or Gold Meal Plan is required.
  • Students in temporary rooms are given permanent rooms following housing cancellations. Rooms become available at varying times. Students may be assigned a permanent bed space before arrival or may stay in the temporary room until Winter Break. Students assigned to temporary spaces will be eligible to book a room for the next semester.

    Conditions for Temporary Overflow Housing:


    • The temporary room rate will be at the lowest advertised rate on-campus. 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.
    • Students in temporary 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.
