The Arbors apartments houses upper-division men and women and is located near the McLane Student Life Center, the Baylor Science Building, and the Hankamer/Cashion buildings. A full-time professional Hall Director, assisted by a graduate assistant director, provides leadership to the apartment staff and residents. Community Leaders (CL's) are upper-division students who live among residents to help them build and maintain meaningful relationships within their communities, connect them to campus involvement opportunities, and lead them in a way that is mindful of Baylor's mission and values. A Resident Chaplain, a current Truett Seminary student, also lives and serves at the complex. The Resident Chaplain can be a resource and support for students as they explore God's call upon their lives. Office assistants provide informational services to the residents at the clubhouse and maintenance personnel handle building repairs. Baylor DPS patrols the complex to ensure safety for the residents.
