Residential Colleges

Baylor's Residential Colleges are designed to provide a culture that fosters academic excellence, intensive faculty-student interaction and rich culture steeped in Baylor tradition. Led by faculty members, these living-learning programs offer a special sense of community through community dinners, lectures and Master's Teas - informal gatherings where students talk with distinguished guests and faculty members. Leadership is also provided by students, who help lead through participation in governing councils and committees. Students wishing to reside in a Residential College must complete an online application process and are required to make a two-year on-campus housing commitment.
