Brigham Young University Student Housing Now Accepts Bitcoin via @Reddit

I'm more familiar with the BYU Provo (Utah) campus, but I believe this is the same deal. Unmarried students not living with family are required to live in "approved housing", which is contracted with the university in some way. If you're OK with being one of 4 or 6 students in a 3-bedroom apartment (and following a bunch of rules you have to agree to as part of the school honor code), it gets down to ~$100/month in the summer, $250-350 during the school year. Private rooms cost more, but still pretty good deal. Anyway, it's not like the official on-campus dorms are accepting bitcoin. Still, as others have noted, the "Mormon network effect" could snowball, other property managers in the area might get interested, it's offered to college kids who are early adopters, etc.
