Housing & Dining

Sure, you need a place to eat and sleep. But on-campus living and dining at Baylor is about much more. We're committed to helping each student develop a deep-seated sense of community, grow spiritually and thrive academically.

Living On Campus

Living on-campus at Baylor, you will experience a supportive Christian environment with people and services in place to help you achieve personal growth and academic success. You will have the opportunity to build relationships that will transform your life forever, and you will experience what it means to be a part of something much bigger than yourself - a community.

First-year students are required to live on-campus for their first two semesters in one of three community options for first-year students: First-Year Communities, Living-Learning Centers, and Residential Colleges. Many students choose to continue their on-campus experience by living in an Upper-Division Community or renewing their membership in a Living-Learning Center or Residential College.
