Living on Campus


There's no better way to experience all Utah State offers than by making it your home. Students who live on campus are just minutes from class and are the first to learn about activities and events. Studies have shown that students who live on campus typically have better grades, are more likely to graduate, and are more satisfied with their college experience.

On-Campus Housing

On-campus housing is convenient. All our facilities include utilities, cable TV, Internet and free laundry. We also provide a variety of other amenities, such as computer labs, lounge areas with TVs and game tables, parking, and more. Some areas also feature private exercise facilities, volleyball courts, fire pits and a courtyard hot tub.

Living on campus makes it easy to walk home after late-night study sessions, grab a no-prep meal, work out before class, or find something to do during a break.

USU's on-campus housing options include apartments, suites and traditional styles. Theme housing options are available for students who want to live with people who share their interests and participate in related activities. Themes range from outdoor adventures and leadership to major-related themes, such as engineering. We also offer areas dedicated to graduate students and married students.

Where to Eat

Meal plans aren't just for students who live on campus. Anyone can buy a meal plan with anywhere from seven to an unlimited number of meals each week.

In addition to the two buffet-style eateries, USU has a variety of dining options across campus, including a food court in the student center, a full-service restaurant overlooking campus, and, of course, famous Aggie Ice Cream, which also sells sandwiches, cheese, and milk from USU's dairy.

Student Center

A daily walk through the Taggart Student Center lets students know what activities are approaching. It's also a one-stop-shop for getting involved on campus. Students come here to learn about clubs, organizations, service opportunities, and student government.

This is also where the biggest campus parties are held, including Mardi Gras, the Homecoming dance, and the Howl, the state's largest Halloween party.

The Taggart Student Center is the community center of the university for all the members of the university family.
