Only single students who are matriculating, or assigned to a track, can live in Approved Housing. When a student's address does not match an address corresponding with an Approved Housing unit, a hold is placed on that student's account restriction that needs to be resolved before that restriction can be lifted.
Below is a list of common reasons a restriction is placed on a student's account with a brief explanation of the first steps to take to resolve the restriction:
If you are living in a BYU-Idaho Approved Housing complex, please contact your manager to ensure that they have registered you as living at that complex with the university. You can also update your address in my.byui.edu under the profile tab. Once your address is updated, please contact the Housing & Student Living Office to have the restriction removed.
The computer system automatically flags addresses that do not match an Approved Housing address. Living at home is considered Approved Housing but if a student's school address and parent address do not match exactly, the computer will still flag it as a violation.
If the parent address is correct, you can update your address to match the parent address in my.byui.edu under the profile tab. Once your address is updated, please contact the Housing & Student Living Office to have the restriction removed (each restriction needs to be manually lifted).
If the parent address is no longer correct, a parent must contact Records & Registration. Once the different addresses are resolved, contact the Housing & Student Living Office (each restriction needs to be manually lifted).
Did you recently get married?
Once your marital status is updated with Student Records & Registration, please contact the Housing & Student Living Office so we can lift the hold (each restriction must be manually lifted).
Are you living with family?
Living with family other than parents is not automatically approved. Please complete an exception-to-policy form to be reviewed by the Housing Exceptions Committee. If you are living with your parents, please see #2 above.
Please contact the Housing & Student Living Office to discuss your situation.
