Arriving Early

If your conference or camp begins on a Monday, you may request to check in after 7:00 p.m. on Saturday or after 3:00 p.m. on Sunday. There is an early arrival fee of $25 per night. Because of a strict maintenance schedule, there are no accommodations available after your conference check-out date. All participants must leave their rooms and turn in their keys by 9:00 a.m. on the morning of check-out.

We are not able to accommodate anyone who is not registered for and attending a conference or camp.

Please send an email to housing@byu.edu to request an early arrival. Be sure to include your anticipated arrival date, conference/camp name, parent's name, and phone number. Once received, we will send you an email confirmation that we received your request and whether or not it is possible.


You should feel comfortable in your room and residence hall, and so should your neighbors. Excessive noise, disturbing the peace, and disruptive behavior are all inappropriate conduct. Examples of disruptive behavior include pranks; snowball, water, pillow, paint ball or food fights; and in-line skating, roller-skating, skateboarding, and long boarding.

Guests who persist in such behavior could be asked to change rooms, transfer to another housing area, or leave On-Campus Housing. They may also be referred to the Honor Code office. Guests may be requested to leave the university if their behavior could result in injury to themselves or others.

Dress and Grooming Standards

The dress and grooming of both men and women should always be modest, neat, and clean, consistent with the dignity adherent to representing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and any of its institutions of higher education. Modesty and cleanliness are important values that reflect personal dignity and integrity, through which students, staff, and faculty represent the principles and standards of the Church. Members of the BYU community commit themselves to observe the following standards, which reflect the direction of the Board of Trustees and the Church publication For the Strength of Youth. The Dress and Grooming Standards are as follows:



For more information, please refer to the Honor Code.

Use of Facilities

Community areas in the residence halls are for residents to enjoy. Please make sure you clean up after yourself and leave the facility ready for someone else. You will be charged for any repairs or cleaning due to damage or littering. Please leave the furniture, including cushions and microwaves, in the lounges.

Fire Safety

Fire regulations prohibit more people occupying a room than there are beds. The housing fee is for the bed only, not for the room. We reserve the right to maximize housing space by filling all available beds in a room.

Fire regulations are designed to protect people and facilities. Rooms will be checked periodically to make sure there are no hazards. Any violators will be disciplined on the first offense, and could be asked to leave housing. Those responsible for setting off false alarms or vandalizing fire equipment will be referred to the University Police and could be asked to leave the university.

The rooms at Helaman Halls are equipped with a sprinkler for the purpose of fire suppression. The sprinkler is triggered when a heat sensitive chemical expands and breaks a glass tube in the sprinkler head. It will not activate from the presence of smoke alone. It could however, activate if tampered with. Do not hit, hang, or fasten items to any part of the sprinkler. You could be held responsible for damage resulting from tampering or inappropriate use of the fire sprinkler suppression system. The University is not responsible for any damages or losses which occur because a sprinkler is activated for any reason.

Smoke detectors should not be covered or blocked. Do not remove the smoke detector or take the batteries out. If your smoke detector "chirps," call maintenance at 422-4411. They cannot replace batteries.

Small appliances and space heaters are not allowed in the bedrooms, with the exception of personal refrigerators provided by the university. We recommend that UL approved irons and popcorn poppers be used in designated areas.

If you need to use extension cords, please keep the number to a minimum, and use only those in good condition. Frayed or worn cords are dangerous.

Incense, candles, or any open flames are not allowed in the residence halls. Please don't store excess paper or other flammable products.

Do not prop doors open, and keep exits and corridors clear. Residence hall staff members automatically close any main access door that is propped open.

Honor Code

Brigham Young University has instituted the Honor Code to create a learning environment consistent with the principles of the Church. All guests staying in BYU housing are expected to follow the Residential Living Standards as outlined in the Honor Code.

Helaman Halls

Heritage Halls

Violations of these standards may be reported to the Honor Code Office, 4440 WSC, (801) 422-2847, or the On-Campus Housing Office, (801) 422-2611. Failure to follow these standards will result in dismissal from the program.

Please review the Honor Code before your stay with us.


The outer doors at Helaman Halls can be opened by card access (except for youth), and room doors are opened with a key. At Heritage Halls, your room key opens your bedroom door, your apartment front door, and the building front doors.

If you lose your key, you will be assessed a $30 key replacement charge. If you do not have your key at the time you check out, but find it later, you will still be charged this fee as the locks are changed within a few hours of checking out.

Meal and Signature Card

If your camp or conference includes meals during your stay with us, you will be given a meal card when you check in. This card will give you access to either the Commons or the Morris Center for the designated meals which are printed on the card. If the card is lost, you may go to one of the area central buildings and get a replacement card. There will be a $2.00 fee due at that time.

The Signature Card, available only to participants of adult conferences, acts as a debit account and is accepted at nearly all dining and retail locations around campus. An initial $25 deposit is required and additional deposits or balance inquiries can be made at most registers and vending machines on campus. Signature Cards are only valid during the duration of the camp and any remaining balances will be forfeited.


Pets and animals of any kind (including fish) are not allowed in the residence halls. The only exception is special assistance animals for residents with disabilities. Please email our office at housing@byu.edu if you need to make accommodations to bring an animal.
