Brooks Residential College
Samuel Palmer Brooks is the namesake of Brooks College and Brooks Flats. Brooks was the seventh president of Baylor University, serving from 1902 until his death in 1931. President Brooks had a tremendous impact on Baylor University. In 1907, S.P. Brooks Hall on Fifth Street opened and fifteen years later the female dormitory was renamed the Burleson Annex, only to be later renamed Harrington Hall. The name change was due to the new men's dormitory being named after S.P. Brooks in 1923. S.P. Brooks Hall on Dutton Avenue bore that name and purpose until it was razed eighty-five years later in 2006.
Replacing the old S.P. Brooks Hall, Brooks Residential College houses a wide variety of students who have committed to living in the interactive community for a minimum of two years. Residents share a private and formal Sunday dinner together weekly with their Faculty Master and guests.

Entrepreneurship Living-Learning Center (ENT-LLC)
The Entrepreneurship Living-Learning Center (ENT-LLC) is an exciting opportunity created to provide housing and academic support for entrepreneurially-minded students from all fields of study. All majors are invited and encouraged to become a part of this program.
This is the first housing option specifically dedicated to those students with a common interest in innovation and entrepreneurship, including space and tools needed for developing student-led businesses. The ENT-LLC seeks to assist students to more fully develop their entrepreneurial capabilities by offering mentoring between upperclassmen and freshmen, accessibility of faculty, discussion groups, lab support and opportunities to work with practicing entrepreneurs and other leaders.
The goal of the ENT-LLC is not to teach entrepreneurship, but to allow students to imagine and embrace their individual abilities and inspire each other to develop and enhance their own core skills, emerging from Baylor and the ENT-LLC with the confidence and focus necessary to implement their own entrepreneurial life-plan.
