Living-Learning Centers are communities that are organized around an academic program or discipline. Students of all classifications with the same major or similar interests can live and learn together in one of Baylor's many Living-Learning Centers. These communities offer specialized programming, cohort classes, and a Faculty in Residence to help enrich the community. Living-Learning Center Housing Contracts are for one academic year and may be renewed.
Residential Colleges are faculty-led communities that foster academic excellence, intensive faculty-student interaction, and rich culture steeped in Baylor tradition. The three Residential Colleges at Baylor offer a special sense of community through community dinners, morning and evening prayer, and Master's Teas hosted by the Faculty Master of the community. Residential College Housing Contracts are for two consecutive academic years and may be renewed.
