Housing Options

Living on campus is far from a one-size-fits-all proposition. Whether you're a first-year, transfer, or continuing upper-division student, you'll find a home among the rich diversity of living environments Baylor offers. What kind of residential community will best meet your needs and preferences? Take a quick look at the three basic on-campus housing options at Baylor: First Year Experience Halls, Living-Learning Programs, and Upper-division Apartments.

First Year Experience Halls

Students living in a First Year Experience hall are provided with many opportunities to build a strong sense of community through various room options (double or triple) and shared spaces (study lounges, lobbies, and common hallways). Some First Year Experience living areas also include a residential restaurant on site. Every year, a handful of current students choose to stay in First Year Experience halls, provided space is available.


For current upper-division and transfer students who desire apartment-style living arrangements, Baylor features several choices spread across campus.

Living-Learning Programs

Living-Learning Programs are communities where students live together and participate in academic and/or co-curricular programming designed especially for them. Students share common academic courses or activities and have access to on-site services including faculty offices, classrooms and enhanced programming. Generally, Living-Learning Programs are open to students from all classifications (freshmen to seniors) and all majors. A few programs have restrictions.
