BYU Contracted housing
Brigham Young University desires an environment for its single undergraduate students living on and off campus that is conducive to their moral and spiritual growth as well as their academic performance. Because the university relies on the community to provide accommodations for most of its students, BYU has established housing guidelines and policies to cultivate such an environment for single undergraduate students desiring to live off campus.
The university has contracted with more than 1,500 landlords and 5,500 living units for single undergraduate students to live in off campus. The owners of contracted rental units agree to: (1) adequately separate single men and women, (2) exercise reasonable efforts to maintain BYU Residential Living Standards, (3) maintain the facilities in good repair, and (4) not abuse basic tenant rights.
