The school year is coming to an end and another semester is around the corner, which means students are searching for the best student housing.

Students look for aspects such as good management, price, location, room style and number of people.

Campus View Suites

Campus View Suites is an on-campus student housing option located at 974 E. 100 S. It is the most requested on-campus housing for two reasons: location, because it’s right on campus versus being across the street, and the fact that it has a newer, updated design, said Seth Gubler, director of housing & resident life.

Olivia Koziatek, a freshman general education major from Salt Lake City and resident of Campus View Suites, said the convenient thing about living right on campus is “you can just hop out of bed and go to class.”

Koziatek said she also likes the set up. Although it isn’t considered a dorm style, it isn’t quite like a normal apartment complex either, she said; it is the perfect set up that makes it easy to get to know your classmates.

“In general, I think the [housing department] does a good job making sure everyone is safe,” Koziatek said.

Campus View Suites offers community washers and dryers, a balcony, a kitchen, hang out areas, and a basketball and volleyball court outside the building, Gubler said. Each apartment holds six people and is fully furnished with couches, beds and desks. The price ranges from $1,599-$2,299 per semester.

The Stay

The Stay is off-campus housing located at 175 S. 1000 E., right across the street from campus, which makes it an easy commute to class.

Ashlee McKell, a freshman criminal justice major from Syracuse who currently lives at The Stay, said the management is great and is quick to respond to issues, which she said is the most valuable thing about this place.

McKell said she likes that there are four girls in one place rather than six like other student housing because it’s easier to get to know everyone and it doesn’t feel as crowded.

The Stay offers a pool that is open year-round. Each apartment is fully furnished with a kitchen table and chairs, a washer and dryer, couches and a T.V. The price ranges from $1,750-$2,750 per semester.

Red Rock Ridge

Red Rock Ridge is off-campus housing that is perfect if you want more space, said Madi Brown, a freshman general education major from Kaysville and current resident at Red Rock Ridge. It’s a bigger apartment that holds six people, all in private bedrooms.

“I like that it’s spacey and the management is really kind, cool, helpful and understanding,” Brown said.

Red Rock Ridge provides community washers and dryers, a pool and hot tub, and free parking. Each apartment is fully furnished with couches, a kitchen table and chairs, two fridges, a T.V., and each room has a bed, desk and dresser. It is located at 344 S. 1990 E.
