Ensign College’s approved housing program differs from those offered by other schools affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Although landlords of approved housing agree to promote the Ensign College Housing Policy and Residential Living Standards in housing units leased to students, Ensign College does not:
- Oversee landlords’ enforcement or compliance with the Housing Policy and Residential Living Standards
- Inspect or monitor the condition or cleanliness of units (c) review or approve lease terms or
- Mediate or become involved in disputes between landlords and students.
Students are encouraged to carefully read leases and inspect and evaluate any apartment before signing a lease.
"Living near the Ensign College campus allows students to immerse themselves in the spirit and sense of community found in nearby Temple Square."
The Ensign College does not own, operate or control any student housing facilities. As an informal service to its students, Ensign College provides a list of off-campus property owners. Students are free to make other housing arrangements, and are under no obligation to choose from the facilities listed.
The Ensign 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 Ensign College, including determining the suitability of a particular facility and for inspecting and otherwise evaluating the facility before entering into a lease agreement.
Commuter students will find that the city bus lines (UTA) and light rail (TRAX) serve the campus well. City transit passes, subsidized by the College for its students, are available for a modest amount and include all bus and TRAX routes except ski busses, paratransit and special services. There is a light rail (TRAX) terminal adjacent to the campus, and the FrontRunner commuter rail stop is also within walking distance.
