The North Village Residential Community joined the rich heritage of Baylor University when the doors open for students, faculty and staff in Fall, 2004.
University House orients the Baylor community to the layout of the three North Village residential buildings, as it is closest to University Parks Drive. University House is home to 175 residents, including the North Village Resident Chaplain, a faculty member in residence, and Graduate Residence Hall Director. It also houses students participating in the Outdoor Adventure Living-Learning Center, the Entrepreneurship Living-Learning Center, Fine Arts Living-Learning Center, and athletes.
The words "Pro Texana" or "For Texas" are inscribed on the Baylor University seal which was adopted by the The University's trustees in 1851. "Pro Texana" represents Baylor's commitment to society. Texana House is home to 169 residents, including a faculty member in residence and Graduate Apprentice Residence Hall Director. It also houses students participating in the Outdoor Adventure Living-Learning Center, the Entrepreneurship Living-Learning Center, Fine Arts Living-Learning Center, and athletes.
The specific location of the Heritage House strives to continue the work of Christian spiritual formation and community building that took place from 1924 to 2003 when the land was occupied by Second Baptist Missionary Church. Heritage House is home to 254 residents including the North Village's Resident Director. It also houses students participating in the Engineering and Computer Science Living-Learning Center.
