BYU is a private university owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), whose general membership has committed to not using coffee or tea. Accordingly, no coffee or tea is permitted on the BYU campus, though other caffeinated beverages are allowed.

BYU students commit to an Honor Code that requires them to wear clothing that is neat, clean, and modest in fabric, fit, style and length. While on campus, those attending or participating in conferences are asked to wear modest clothing as well. We also ask our program attendees to keep their language free of obscenities and other vulgarity while on the BYU campus.

Thank you for helping us to maintain the standards that make BYU the exceptional university it is. We hope you enjoy your stay on campus.

Dress Standards

The following items of clothing are considered appropriate: blue jeans, cargo–style pants, tennis shoes, flip-flops, casual T-shirts, and brightly colored clothing. Skirts, dresses, or shorts must extend at least to the knee, and shirts and tops must cover the stomach, shoulders and back.

Please avoid being sloppy or inappropriately casual; no baggy or saggy pants; no visible underwear; pants must be worn at the waist.
