Living & Learning at Baylor - Designed for Your Success!

Baylor University’s Living-Learning Programs (LLPs) provide opportunities for students with similar educational interests to live together in residence halls offering structured learning environments. Campus Living & Learning sponsors many of these communities with the support of various academic departments and faculty members. In addition to the residential staff (professional Residence Hall Directors, Resident Chaplains, and student Community Leaders), Living-Learning Programs also have Program Directors who facilitate the admission process and oversee each program. There are ten Living-Learning Program options for you to consider:

Living-Learning Centers
Living-Learning Centers (LLCs) are residential communities organized by academic discipline or program. Baylor's LLCs range in size and are open to freshmen through seniors. In many programs, students may remain in an LLC throughout their time at Baylor.

Residential Colleges
Residential Colleges are designed to provide a culture that fosters academic excellence, intensive faculty-student interaction and rich culture steeped in Baylor tradition. Baylor's Residential Colleges are open to freshmen through seniors.

Research shows students who participate in a Living-Learning Program have higher retention rates, are more engaged with faculty members, and have greater satisfaction with the overall college experience. Living in one of these communities will provide a unique living-learning experience that connects you to the Baylor community, while achieving student success.

Application Process

All Living-Learning Programs (LLP) require their own application process. Admission decisions are made by the individuals sponsoring the program. Acceptance into an LLP will override any traditional hall preferences you provide, and you will be placed in the appropriate LLP if accepted.

To apply to live in a specific Living-Learning Program, you will need to have been accepted to Baylor and submitted deposit. Your Bear-ID (e.g. Bobby_Baylor) and password provide access to the LLP Joint Application which includes individual applications to our ten programs. Each LLP application consists of a few questions that help us understand your interest in the program and provides an opportunity for you to confirm your commitment to this LLP. Living-Learning Program applications are accepted until all spaces are filled, but each LLP has a limit on the number of residents that can join the community. As such, it is best to submit your LLP application as soon as possible as spaces are limited.

Applications for 2014-15 are no longer being accepted. Contact a LLP program director if interested in admission or for more information.
