I'm interning in a city where I've never lived and where I have no connections. How do I find housing? How do I know which ward I attend?

  • The university has acquired housing in the following locations and has affordable, semester-by-semester contracts available to students completing internships or student teaching: 
    • Arizona: Mesa
    • California: Davis
    • Idaho: Moscow, Nampa
    • Nevada: Las Vegas
    • Utah: Ogden, Taylorsville
    Additionally, BYU-Idaho has some leads and connections with housing complexes in other areas, which may be of interest to both single and married students. For more information about either scenario, please contact Brother Marc Sunderland in Student Housing at 208.496.9222. 
  • Many students have found it helpful to contact the director of the local Institute as they search for housing or other information about their new location. The director may connect students with other young adults or local priesthood leaders for additional assistance. Visit institute.lds.org to find an institute in the area where you'll be living.
  • The Church's meetinghouse locator will help you identify your local ward or branch and provide contact information for priesthood leaders. From LDS.org, select "Maps," which can be found under "Sign-in/Tools" at the top of the page. You can also use this tool to find the nearest temple and family history center.
