Apartment Set-Up


You are financially responsible for any damage to the premises, furnishings, and/or appliances. To avoid damage charges, please adhere to the guidelines while decorating your apartment.

Apartment Transfers

Change Billed Account


If married, you may choose which spouse's account gets billed each month; however, we will only bill the account of a tenant who is enrolled in classes at the University with a minimum of 9 Undergraduate credits or 2 Graduate credits. All rental payments must be made to the currently billed account.

Computers, Internet, Telephone, IPTV


Residents are welcome to bring their own computers, or they may rent one from the Office of Information Technology. Computers are leased on a first-come, first-served basis. For further information, visit the computer rental page on the Office of Information Technology website.

High-speed wireless BYU Internet connection is provided to each resident. Residents will have access to the Internet at large as well as to BYU's campus computing services, which include university library and registration databases, etc.

Telephone landlines are not available.

To view availability and descriptions of IPTV and other services, visit the Housing Technology Services page on the Office of IT website. If you have any technical problems or access questions call 801-422-4000 or visit the Office of IT website.

Family Housing Review Board


Residents may seek exceptions or alternatives to the established guidelines and contract terms (i.e. extension of move-out time, guests, etc.) by submitting a petition. The petition is found in My Housing Account under the Family Housing tab. Once the petition is filled out and submitted, the Board will review it and notification of their decision will be sent through the message board in My Housing Account.

Keys


Depending on where you have contracted to live, you may check in at that area's office after 10:00 a.m. on the effective date of your rental agreement. When you check in, you will be given the key to your apartment. A Community Aide in the area will give you a mail key. After you turn in the completed check-in form, you will be given a second apartment key. If you would like to check-in on a Saturday or a holiday, you must make arrangements beforehand with the area office.

If you are locked out of your apartment during office hours, you may check out a key from the area office with photo identification. If locked out after business hours but before 11:00 p.m., you can go to your Community Aide to be let in (the same identification process is required). If a checked-out key is not returned the same day, you will be charged $1.00 per day for each day you have the key.

Laundry Discount


The discount for the laundry facilities should be setup for you automatically. If you experience any problems with the laundry discount, please contact the Signature Card Office at 422-3866.

Mail

Your first month's prorated rent is due on the first day your agreement and must be paid before you can pick up your keys. After that, rental payments are due on the first day of each month. $30 late fees are assessed after the tenth of the month. Click here for more information.

Renter's Insurance


BYU Campus Accommodations suggests you purchase adequate renter's insurance. As a condition to the leasing of the premises, you agree to release BYU from any responsibility of liability for personal belongings that are damaged or stolen in Student Family Housing, even if the loss arises from the negligence of BYU.

Signs and Decals


Glue, tape, and other adhesives can damage surfaces in the apartment. Signs, decals, posters, and pictures may be hung with white Plastitack®. You must be able to easily remove items without damage to the surfaces.
