Employee Housing

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.
