Complexes in approved housing are under contract with the university to meet certain standards and conditions before they can offer contracts to single BYU-Idaho students. Because of this, approved housing provides significant benefits and flexibility to students.
|BYU-Idaho standards and compliance with the Honor Code are expected and maintained in approved housing.|
|The costs of utilities and amenities are covered in an all-inclusive rental price (utilities, furnishings, internet, tv, etc.).|
|Only BYU-Idaho students admitted to a track can live in approved housing.|
|All BYU-Idaho students living in approved housing must have an annual endorsement from their Bishop.|
|Complexes in approved housing are inspected annually by the Housing & Student Living Office to ensure they meet physical facility standards.|
|Over 90 percent (92.6%) of approved housing uits are within two blocks of campus.|
|Parking is much more abundant in approved housing compared to community housing.|
|Managers of approved housing complexes are required to be endorsed annually.|
|Managers receive monthly training and instruction from the Housing & Student Living Office. At these meetings, discussion centers on improving the experience of their student-tenants.|
|When students have complaints and concerns, the Housing & Student Living Office offers mediation and arbitration services to help resolve the concern.|
|Many complexes offer flexible contract length options taht correspond to the university academic calendar (for example, students can rent by the semester).|
While all the complexes are individually owned and operated, approved housing supports the university's mission to "maintain a wholesome, academic, cultural, social & spiritual environment."
