May 23 Update: Women's Housing and Family Housing are full. The waiting lists are also full to the point that individuals adding their names now are unlikely to get to the top of the list (judging from past year's withdrawals). You may still add yourself, or a group, to the Waiting List and we will contact you if space becomes available, but we recommend making other arrangements. As the person adding a group, you must include the names of the other group members and they will also be added to the list. Note: Family Housing groups are restricted to related individuals and must include four to six family members. A weekly email update will be sent to the individual who submitted the request.
Campus housing is $103 per person; this price provides housing for up to six nights, Sunday night through Friday night.
Again in 2018: Add Saturday night, August 18, to your housing package for an additional $15. Payment for this check-in option must be made by August 10 at 5:00 p.m. MDT (no at-the-door payments accepted). Check-in for Saturday, August 18, is from 7:00 p.m. to midnight. (Note: BYU Dining Service locations will not open on Sunday, August 19, other than the Cannon Commons cafeteria opening from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. for dinner.)
Campus housing registration is open from March 28 to August 10 on a space-available basis for particpants who select either a Monday–Friday or Tuesday–Friday program registration option.
Please note that no cooking facilities, private rooms, or rooms with private baths are available. If your situation requires one of these amenities, please make other lodging arrangements (perhaps with friends, family, or a local hotel or motel). No one under age 14 is permitted in campus housing. Students who are age 14 to 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Individuals who register for campus housing by 5:00 p.m. mountain time on July 27 receive the housing assignment by email, or letter, the second week of August.
- Sunday, August 19, from 3:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
- Monday–Friday, August 20–24, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.

- Again in 2018! Pre-payment required for Saturday evening check-in. Check-in on Saturday, August 18, from 7:00 p.m. to midnight, is available only to those who pre-pay $15 per person by August 10 at 5:00 p.m. for the additional night. Payment will not be accepted at the check-in locations. (Note: BYU Dining Service locations will not open on Sunday, August 19, other than the Cannon Commons cafeteria opening from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. for dinner.)
- By Saturday, August 25, at 9:00 a.m. Checkout time is mandatory due to a strict University maintenance schedule.
A parent or legal guardian must accompany youth ages 14 through 17. No one under age 14 is permitted in Education Week housing.
To register multiple people in a single transaction, please call 801-422-8925 or 1-877-221-6716 (toll-free). The online registration system permits single registrations only.
Individuals or groups (up to six women per group) may register. Individuals who register singly who do not request a roommate will have one assigned.
Individuals or groups (up to six men per group) may register. Individuals who register singly who do not request a roommate will have one assigned.
Four to six family members may register as a group for family housing (a parent or legal guardian must accompany youth). Please note that family housing is limited to six family members per apartment, and youth must be fourteen or older. No cooking facilities or refrigerators are available. Please see the Family Housing Registration Procedures under the "Registration Procedures" section below.
Unfortunately, couples' housing is not available. The facilities at Helaman Halls cannot house both genders in the same building since they have only one restroom per wing or have shared bathrooms between rooms. Except for participants who qualify and register for family housing in Heritage Halls, men and women are housed in separate buildings and should apply for either men's or women's housing. If campus facilities do not work for your situation, please make other lodging arrangements (perhaps with friends, family, or a local hotel or motel).
Housing may be purchased, subject to availability, when you register for a Monday-to-Friday or Tuesday-to-Friday program option. Registration is available by telephone, online, or in person. Please note that registration for family housing is only available by telephone at 801-422-8925 (or toll-free at 1-877-221-6716). To register multiple people in a single transaction for either men's or women's housing, please call one of the numbers listed above.
Dates to Remember:
- From March 28 at 8:00 a.m. to July 27 at 5:00 p.m. mountain time, individuals and groups (including roommates) may register for campus housing by telephone, online, or in person on a space-available basis. Note that a family group must register by telephone. As of May 15, women's housing is filled. See the instructions at the top of this page to add your name to a waiting list.
- From July 30 to August 10, individual housing registrations (no roommate or group requests) are accepted by telephone only, on a space-available basis.
Roommates and Groups (Roommate Selection Procedure)
To request a roommate or to be part of a group (up to six people per group), you must enter a ten-digit group link number during the housing registration process. This group link number should be a telephone number (including area code) of one of the group members, and each group member must provide the same link number during registration.
When you register as part of a group, you will see a list of names of those from the group who have already registered. At that time, you may select one of them as a roommate. Of course, the first person in a group, or in a roommate pairing, will not see their desired roommate listed since that person has not yet registered. It will always be the second person of a roommate pairing who creates a link between the two. When one person selects a roommate it is noted on both individuals' records.
We try to honor group housing requests for all housing areas. The maximum group size is six individuals.
Family Housing Registration Procedures for 2018
- Family housing registration is available by telephone only.
- Each family group requires four to six registered family members.
- The first person to register in a family group must register at least four family members for Education Week and for campus housing during the initial call to our registration office. If you do not fill all six spots in your family housing unit, you may add a fifth or sixth family member through July 27. Please provide the name, address, birth date, email address, and telephone number of each family member for whom you are registering.
- If the number of members in your family group falls below four, the remaining family members will be moved to men's or women's housing (as appropriate).
- Waiting List Information—If you call our registration number, 801-422-8925, and find that your preferred housing type is filled, you can add yourself or a group to a Waiting List. We will send a weekly email update to those on the list.
Campus housing accommodations include two twin beds per room, bed and bath linen (twin bed sheets, pillow, pillow case, blanket, bath towel, washcloth, and bar of soap), and central bath facilities on each floor. Please note that refrigerators are not available in Heritage Halls (used for family housing and some women's group housing). Refrigerators are standard in the rooms at Helaman Halls (used for men's housing and the majority of women's housing).
Students who do not request a roommate will have one assigned in men's and women's housing. If you register for campus housing and are in need of accommodation for a qualified disability, please inform the Education Week Office in writing immediately after receiving your housing notification, but no later than July 20. Please be specific in your request. BYU is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for participants with qualified disabilities.
No cooking facilities, private rooms, or rooms with private baths are available. If your situation requires one of these amenities, please make other lodging arrangements (perhaps with friends, family, or a local hotel or motel).
Students who are age 14 to 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. No one under age 14 is permitted in campus housing.
Many Education Week students stay with family or friends. You might consider purchasing a program registration for your host and/or hostess to show appreciation for their hospitality.
Check area Hotels and Motels from the Utah Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau.
If you are bringing an RV, we encourage you to stay in local RV campgrounds. While it is not encouraged, RVs are allowed in lot 37 north of the Indoor Practice Facility (see map in the class schedule booklet published in July). Recreational vehicle parking is restricted (both day and night) to this lot. RV parking on campus is available ONLY for completely self-contained RVs. RV parking is permitted beginning Saturday, August 18, on a first-come, first-served basis. This area is a parking lot for RVs and cars only; there are no restrooms, showers, hookups, or dump sites. Restrooms and showers in the Richards Building, Smith Fieldhouse, and student housing areas may not be used by participants staying in RVs. Please do not bring pets onto campus property. In using the RV area, keep it free of litter; assure that your vehicle does not leak; keep awnings contained so traffic is not impeded; make sure not to attach anything to structures, fixtures, or surfaces; and keep RVs in stalls as much as possible. Courtesy shuttle vans run between this parking area and the main campus during Education Week.
If you live within daily driving distance, please consider returning home in the evenings, leaving open the limited housing space for students who come from areas outside the Wasatch Front.
