Foreign Language Student Residence FLSR ForeignLanguageHousing.JPG 1992 The on-campus complex consists of 25 apartments for men and women, learning nine different languages: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. Residents of these apartments agree to speak only their apartment's assigned language during the school year while in the apartment. This immersion experience is available in nine languages, and students are accompanied by a native resident throughout the year to enhance the experience. [1][2][3]

Helaman Halls[edit]

Construction of Helaman Halls followed soon after the completion of Heritage Halls, with the first five buildings completed in 1958, three more added by 1970, and the ninth hall in 2010.[4][5]

Helaman Halls was originally an all-men complex, but now consists of five buildings for women, and four buildings for men. Although there are basic kitchen facilities in the basement lobby of each hall, residents are required to have a meal plan, and the majority of their meals are eaten in the area central building: The Cannon Center. Because of its close proximity to the athletic facilities and all-you-can-eat dining, many Freshman athletes choose to live in Helaman Halls.[5]

Helaman Halls is located on the northwest corner of campus. Living style consists of two people per room, with 22 rooms on each floor, with six floors (in three stories) per building. Helaman Halls currently has housing for just over 2,100 students. The Halls recently underwent a 12 year renovation spanning from 1991 through 2003.[6] A new men's hall, which has not been officially named but is referred to as "Building 9", was built between Merrill and May halls in 2010.[5]

There are nine individual living buildings. They are all named after a well-known Latter-day Saint man or woman and assigned a letter. The buildings in the Helaman Halls complex include:

Helaman Halls (J) "Building 9" HLJ BYU HLJ 2.jpg 2010 [1][2]

The current Cannon Center is the second building of this name. It was built while the old Cannon Center was still in operation and so is located slightly north and east of the old building. The old Cannon center in general filled the same function and role as the current building.

Heritage Halls[edit]

40°15′5″N 111°38′40″W / 40.25139°N 111.64444°W / 40.25139; -111.64444
Heritage Halls is a complex of dorms that consists of 24 buildings; however, four more are currently under construction, with two of them scheduled to open for the Fall 2012 Semester.[14] Built in 1953, Heritage Halls are the oldest dorms on campus. It is located on the East side of campus. Students that live in the Heritage Halls attend church in the Provo Utah YSA 4th Stake on Brigham Young University campus. The living arrangements in Heritage are similar to those of an apartment. Heritage Halls is communal-style living, and was originally for unmarried female students. Now, however, 11 dorms are for men and 13 for women. Students share a kitchen and a common area.

Heritage Halls is a twenty-four-building housing complex on campus which offers apartment-style living. Six of the buildings were built in 1952, and another six in 1954. The complex was dedicated on May 26, 1954.[15] The halls received their collective name through a contest among residents. Twenty-two of the separate buildings are named after notable Latter-day Saint women. Originally, these halls housed only female residents. Today, however, the halls house both male and female students, divided by gender into separate buildings. Each of the original buildings has ten units capable of housing six people each.[16][17] Halls HR17 through HR24 were constructed with a third floor that added another four six-person apartments. In 2011, building HR01 was demolished to allow the utility tunnels to be extended. HR20 was also taken out of service. Two new, much larger buildings (HR25 and HR28) were completed and first occupied in August 2011. These new buildings each have four floors. HR25 has 186 beds and HR28 has 234 beds. HR26 and HR27 are under construction as of September 2011 with an anticipated occupancy in January 2012.

There are 24 individual living buildings as well as a main building (Central Building.) They each are named after a well-known Latter-day Saint woman and assigned a number. The buildings in the Heritage Halls complex include:

Wyview Park[edit]

In 1971, Brigham Young University purchased a group of 150 mobile home units and set them up on a tract of land between University Avenue and 200 West from 1800 North to 2230 North to provide housing for married students. This project included 36 one-bedroom units, 78 two-bedroom units, and 36 three-bedroom units. There was a central building of 5,514 square feet (512.3 m2) which housed laundry facilities, and administrative offices, etc. This trailer park was demolished in 1997 to accommodate replacement married student apartments.[25]

The current complex includes 30 buildings which originally housed married student families, until the end of the summer of 2006, when the southern half of the residential park was converted into housing for singles and eventually the entire complex.[26] In 2013 after the winter semester of school concluded, the northern portion of Wyview was converted into a makeshift Missionary Training Center (MTC) to help alleviate the overburdened Provo MTC just up the hill. As part of this temporary MTC complex, the LDS church also obtained a lease for the Raintree Apartments across the street to the west and both facilities are used together to house missionaries and their training activities.

The buildings are arranged in quads with playgrounds and courts enclosed. The complex contains a laundromat, a convenience store, a BYU Creamery store, and a multipurpose building which houses the Wyview office and a chapel for LDS wards.[27] The buildings in the Wyview Park complex include:

Previous Residential facilities[edit]

Allen Hall[edit]

One of the earliest student dormitories at BYU, Allen Hall, named for Ray Eugene Allen and his wife Inez Knight, was built in 1938. Originally it was a men's dormitory, but during World War II, a large influx of female students caused the university to make it a women's dorm. In 1962, the building ceased to be a student dormitory altogether, and was used as temporary housing for missionaries while the Church's Language Training Mission was under construction.[28] The success of Allen Hall led to immediate plans for another dormitory, Amanda Knight Hall, named for the wife of Jesse Knight. This served as a home for female students until it was also turned over to the Language Training Mission.[29]

BYA Boarding House[edit]

The BYA Boarding House was established in 1885 with Joseph B. Keeler as steward and Willard Done as presiding tutor. It had 24 residents in May 1886 but there is no record of it after that date.[30]

Co-op Housing[edit]

In the years immediately after World War II BYU purchased several houses in Provo that it operated as co-operative residents before it was able to build resident halls on a large scale. Most of these houses were for female students.[31]

Deseret Towers[edit]

In 1965, BYU completed construction of Deseret Towers. "DT", as it is called by students, originally consisted of five towers, with a sixth (V Hall) added in 1969, and a seventh (W Hall) in the late seventies. The Towers were capable of housing over 2000 students. In December 2006, V and W Hall were torn down. The others followed in 2008 with demolition being completed in May 2008.[32][33][34]

Wymount Village[edit]

In 1946, during the postwar BYU growth, President McDonald purchased forty-eight buildings from a nearby Air Force station in order to house students. These buildings were called Wymount Village, and housed both married and single students until 1962.[35] Wymount Village was replaced by Wymount Terrace in that year, intended solely for students with young families. The 24 building complex contains a total of 462 apartments of varying sizes.[36] Wymont Village was located in the general vicinity of where the J. Reuben Clark Law School is today.

Wyview Village[edit]

This was another set of housing units purchased from the Federal Government. It was 150 pre-fabricated homes intended for Mountain Home Air Force Base. The units were practically new, with new appliances and many had never been lived in. They were sold as surplus by the government in Ocrtober of 1956, moved to Provo early in 1957 and ready for occupation by August 1957. They were located north-east of the present site of the Marriot Center.[37]
