You’ve applied, been accepted, and now you’re enrolled at Southern Utah University. The next step is to find student housing in Cedar City.

With only a few hundred beds available in on-campus housing, the majority of students at SUU live off-campus. Here is information to help you find housing at SUU.

Off-campus Housing Options

Off-campus housing is a great alternative for students unable to receive on-campus housing. Instead of a Resident Assistant (RA) most apartment complexes have an on-site property manager. Most student housing apartments are near SUU or within a few miles.

Off-campus Housing Costs

Costs vary depending on each property. Some apartments allow students to pay per semester while others pay per month. Some student apartments require tenants to pay for utilities - gas, power, water - while others include those expenses in the monthly rent. Other amenities such as furniture, free internet and on-site laundry facilities all affect the price.

Cedar City Property Management Companies

SUU maintains a list of available off-campus housing and property management companies. The list is updated in real-time with the most accurate information. (If you want to list an apartment for rent, please submit an Off-Campus Housing Option form.)
