Note: Based on current public health guidance, COVID-19 tests are not required at the start of the spring 2023 semester. For more information please visit our recently updated Covid-19 webpage.



A parking permit is required to park your vehicle on campus. Visit Commuter Services to purchase a parking permit and for all parking-related questions.


Your UCard is your student ID, but also lets you access your building, use your meal plan or Flex Dollars, and ride UTA public transit. UCards will be distributed for new students via orientation sessions and at move-in – please follow any provided instructions to ensure a smooth pick-up. For more information about UCards, visit ucard.utah.edu. 

Mail Services

Residents are automatically given a mailing address. You may begin receiving mail for the fall semester on August 9, 2022. To view your mailing address and to learn more, visit our Desk & Mail Services page.

Housing Bill

All housing & meal plan charges will be included in the student's tuition statement. This bill will be paid through University Income Accounting & Student Loan Services. The deadlines for semester tuition, housing, and meal plan bill can be found on Income Accounting. To spread out these costs, students may elect to sign up and enroll in a payment plan.  Students are legally responsible for their accounts. Visit ourRates & Housing Account Page for more details on paying for your housing. 

Financial Aid & Scholarship Information

Any scholarship or financial aid that exceeds the cost of tuition will automatically be applied to a student's housing and meal plan charges. This will be reflected in the student's tuition bill via University Income Accounting. 

Lockout Help

If you are locked out of your room, please go to your area front desk to sign out a lock-out key. You can check out a loaner key for free for 30 minutes. If you need a loaner key longer than 30 minutes you can check out a loaner key for up to seven days for $10. If you still can’t find your key, we will change your locks ($125) so your room is secure. 

If you are locked out of your building you can borrow a temporary access card from the PHC, MHC, Kahlert Village, or Lassonde front desk. You can check out a temporary access card for free for 30 minutes. If you need to keep the card for longer than 30 minutes, you can check one out for up to seven days for a $10 fee. 

Staff will always verify your identity when letting you into your room or issuing a lockout key. Billing for all fees will be to your Housing U account. 

Canceling Your Room

If your plans have changed and you will not be attending the University of Utah or no longer plan to live on campus, please cancel your room reservation in Housing U. Additional information about terminating your contract may be foundhere.
