Housing security is generally considered to be any variety of circumstances which make finding and/or maintaining a place to live difficult. Sometimes, students may have difficulty finding or maintaining housing because of high costs or poor housing quality. Campus, church, and community resources are available to address BYU students' basic needs.
There are many resources both on and off-campus available to students in need. Students experiencing housing insecurity may contact the Dean of Students Office and their local Bishop to learn about available resources. Walk-ins, phone calls, and emails are all welcome.
If you are experiencing housing insecurity, please contact the Dean of Students Office.
Any student can meet with their local Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to discuss their individual situations. Students of other faiths may meet with a local Bishop or the BYU Chaplain (801-422-2293). The Bishop will assess basic needs and help students create a plan to become self-reliant. Students may also request assistance through their ward's Elder's Quorum President or Relief Society President.
Bishops and other ecclesiastical leaders never share information with BYU or the Dean of Students Office.
Contact your local Bishop through your ward's Executive Secretary, the "Member Tools" app, or visit comeuntochrist.org
