The Fairmont Apartments houses upper-division students. Community Leaders are upperclassmen that live among the students 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.
