Undergraduate Housing

There is so much more to the on-campus living experience than receiving a key and having a new address. Housing & Residential Education is here to support you as you explore all that it means to be a Utah student. By living on campus, you will be taking part in a program that will impact your life. Undergraduate students have the added benefit of being able to be part of a specific program where you will be able to dive deeper into an area of interest such as entrepreneurship, Honors program, social justice, community service, Engineering, Humanities, research, leadership, Fine Arts, Science, outdoor leadership, and global engagement. These opportunities set the U apart from other schools that you are looking at!
