Housing Policy

LDS Business College’s approved housing program differs from the housing program offered by other schools affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Although landlords of approved housing agree to promote the LDS Business College Housing Policy and Residential Living Standards in housing units leased to students, LDS Business College does not (a) oversee landlords’ enforcement or compliance with the Housing Policy and Residential Living Standards, (b) inspect or monitor the condition or cleanliness of units, (c) review or approve lease terms or (d) mediate or become involved in disputes between landlords and students. Students are strongly encouraged to carefully read any lease and inspect and evaluate any apartment before the student signs any lease.

Housing facilities are available to LDS Business College students through a variety of off-campus property owners, including Property Reserve, Inc. (PRI), the commercial real-estate arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The LDS Business College does not own, operate or control any student housing facilities. As an informal service to its students, the LDS Business College provides a list of possible housing opportunities on its website. Students are free to make housing arrangements wherever they like and are under no obligation to choose from the facilities listed.

Two of the rental properties listed on the College’s website, the Plaza and the Lodge, are owned by and are under the control of PRI. PRI has contracted with Horne Lodging Properties to manage the Plaza and the Lodge on a day-to-day basis. Generally speaking, the managers of these two properties are able to exercise a greater degree of control in requiring adherence to the Honor Code standards than the management of other facilities.

The LDS Business College makes no representation or warranty as to the suitability, quality, safety, living conditions, tenant satisfaction, value, or any other factor or condition with respect to any of the housing facilities listed on its website. The student and his or her family are solely responsible for making all housing arrangements while attending the LDS Business College, including determining the suitability of a particular facility and for inspecting and otherwise evaluating the facility before entering into a lease agreement.

 

Plaza/Lodge Meal Plan

Because dormitory-style housing includes no personal food preparation facilities, all applicants to the Lodge and the Plaza are required to make a $500 dining services payment to LDS Business College as a condition of being eligible to reside in either of those two facilities. The student resident then receives an electronic card with the $500 balance that is usable at the LDS Business College BC Café.

  • The cards are picked up at the BC Café

  • The $500 non-refundable dining services payment is required in full before housing reservations can be made for The Lodge or The Plaza.

  • Residents use this convenient electronic card to purchase meals or snacks at the LDS Business College BC Café which is located adjacent to the main campus building.

  • The balance on the card may be carried from semester to semester until is it used up.

  • Residents have the option of replenishing the card balance at any time.

  • Any balance remaining on the card is forfeited if the student fails to register for classes at the College for two consecutive semesters, including spring session.

  • Participation in the LDS Business College pre-paid food service subsequent to the initial $500 dining services payment is encouraged but is optional.
