Room Types

There are a wide variety of room types available to students.  Some room types are only available in certain locations and to certain academic classifications, and some are limited in numbers.

Please note: Students must have at least 30 credit hours at the University of Utah to live in apartments spaces; AP or CLEP credits do not count toward these hours.
