Getting Around Campus

Walking

BYU is a large campus and wearing appropriate footwear is important. High heels on ice may not be the best idea! Click here to view a fun video.

BYU Bike Sharing

You can sign up to rent a bike through BYU Bike Sharing! There are a limited number of bikes available, so click here to reserve yours now!

The Ryde Shuttle

Student Movement Inc., a private company, offers the Ryde shuttle from Wyview Park to the Museum of Art (MOA) in the core of campus. This shuttle runs during the day, M-F, and offers a Saturday grocery run. More information may be found here.

BYU Car Sharing

BYU has teamed up with Hertz-on-Demand to give students the ability to travel outside of Provo, take a last minute road trip, run errands, or visit friends without having their own car. More information may be found here.

Community Standards

How well do you get along with people?

Getting along with people who live differently from you can be a challenge. You might experience differences in cleanliness, bedtimes, noise levels, type of music listened to, food choices, clothing choices, movies to watch, friends, Sabbath-day worship, room decorations, etc. These differences can be experienced with your roommate, apartment members, floor members or the entire building community. However, the chance to interact with and learn from a diversity of people from all over the country and from around the world could prove to be the most rewarding and educational investment you have ever made.

In an effort to reduce the potential for conflict, it is important that residents discuss possible differences and set guidelines before conflict arises. You will have weekly meetings, during which your community members (residents in your hall or on your floor) will have the opportunity to talk about issues that may become problems. The purpose of these Community Standards meetings is to allow each community member the chance to express his or her expectations of others living in the community, and set guidelines for how they will treat and interact with each other. Differences in expectations will be discussed until everyone comes to consensus on appropriate guidelines. Residents are encouraged to have their own meetings with their roommate(s) on room or apartment concerns. Community members are obligated to uphold these standards and to hold each community member responsible for the standards.

Please come each week to your Community Standards meeting prepared to share your opinions, willing to listen to the opinions of others, and ready to work together to reach consensus. We hope to see you there!
