Is your student planning to live on campus next year? If so, these next few weeks are an important stretch for re-applying and choosing which of Baylor’s many residential communities are right for him or her.
On November 6, the re-application process will open. While the 2019-20 school year may seem far off, now is the time for students to consider where they’ll be living next year. Soon, your students will receive an email from Campus Living & Learning
(CLL) informing them of important upcoming dates and options, and how they can apply.
The options for on-campus living are far more varied (and exciting) than many parents realize. Baylor offers a wide array of living options, from traditional residence halls, to living-learning centers, residential colleges and apartment-style upper-division communities. It can be a lot to consider. Here’s what you need to know about your student’s options.

Tours of residence halls happen every day, Monday-Friday, at 10:30 and 3:30. Tour groups meet inside Penland Dining Hall for a short presentation. Two residence halls are toured, including a double room in North Russell and an apartment in Heritage House. There is no RSVP required to attend a tour. Upper-division students with questions about potential rooms for next year are also encourages to attend.
