BYU–Hawaii Housing Subsidy Benefit
Brigham Young University–Hawaii offers full-time faculty and administrative employees, at grade level 27 and above, additional compensation in salary and a taxable housing subsidy benefit. This housing subsidy is intended to offset the employee’s monthly housing costs and may be used for either BYU–Hawaii owned and maintained housing or privately-owned housing. The housing subsidy amounts to an additional $18,000 taxable benefit per year included in the employee’s twice-monthly paycheck.

The housing waitlists are available for homes according to the number of bedrooms desired. Employees can only be on one list at a time. Current employees can add their names to the waitlist at any time. New employees can add their name on the date they accept the job offer. Waitlists are prioritized by request and acceptance dates. When an employee is offered a home and chooses to reject the offer, the employee will need to reapply and will be added to the bottom of the waitlist.
