Housing and 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 over 4,500 students in different buildings.

Close proximity to the main campus, public transportation, and downtown Salt Lake City are just a few reasons our location is ideal. Living on campus puts you at the base of the beautiful Red Butte Canyon, home to hiking, biking, and running trails. Whether you are seeking an apartment or residence hall-style space, HRE has a variety of spaces for you to 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 Residential Learning Model centers on four main goals: collegiate success, a culture of belonging, civic engagement, and personal development. HRE spaces are furnished, and utilities, cable television, and high-speed internet are included in the rental rates. Learn how to apply, rates, and housing eligibility on
