North Village Residential Village

Baylor University broke ground in May 2003 on the 212,000-square-foot North Village Residential Community, the first residential facility to be constructed on campus since 1967. Scheduled to open in July 2004, the $33-million North Village addresses the second imperative of Baylor 2012, the university's 10-year vision - "to create a truly residential campus." The complex also represents the first partnership between Campus Living and Learning and an academic unit - the School of Engineering and Computer Science.
