East Arbors Building Details

East Arbors apartments houses upper-division female students 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 upperclass 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 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 hall office and maintenance personnel handle building repairs. Baylor DPS patrol the complex to ensure safety for the residents.
