Housing & Residential Education
Housing & Residential Education (HRE) creates an engaging community where students live, learn, and thrive. We develop a sense of belonging, provide opportunities for personal growth, and foster a safe and supportive environment. Our team aims to make the University of Utah feel like home. Owned and operated by The University of Utah, this office serves single students and houses over 3,800 students in over 33 different buildings. HRE on-campus housing at the University of Utah is in one of the most beautiful areas in Salt Lake City. Close proximity to main campus, public transportation, and downtown Salt Lake City are just a few of the reasons why this location is ideal. Living on campus puts you at the base of beautiful Red Butte Canyon, home to a variety of hiking, biking, and running trails. Whether you are seeking an apartment or residence hall style space, HRE has a variety of spaces for you choose from both at the base of Red Butte Canyon, and the surrounding Salt Lake and Downtown areas. The student experience while living on campus with Housing & Residential Education is cultivated through a residential curriculum framework. The curriculum centers on four main goals: collegiate success, culture of belonging, civic engagement, and personal development. HRE spaces are furnished, and utilities and high-speed internet are included in the rental rates.

Additional Resources for Graduate Students
The current housing market in Salt Lake City is growing, but not as fast as the demand for housing. The growth in the market is in new apartments being built near the Salt Lake City downtown area. As there is a low vacancy rate, the apartments are rented quickly. Lower cost housing will be found in the adjacent neighborhoods of Salt Lake.
Students are encouraged to connect with their academic program and network with academic program cohort members and peer students to learn about housing locations where current grad families or individuals live.
