In order to login to the housing application, you must have already paid your Enrollment Deposit to Baylor. It can sometimes take 24 hours for this to process. You need to use your Bear ID, which is also used to sign into your Baylor email. Contact the Help Desk at 254-710-4357 if you are locked out. You also must establish your DUO two-factor authentication. If you are still having trouble, try a different web browser or try to sign in directly from our website on the “My Housing” tab.
Be sure you are using your Baylor ID number and not your Admissions Reference number. The Baylor ID number starts with “89” and is nine digits long. If you cannot find your Baylor ID number, check goBAYLOR or contact Admissions.
Yes. Students can modify their Housing Application until May 1 by simply logging into My Housing.
Students will have the opportunity to select the community of their choice using the Choose Your Own Room feature in the application when that week opens. For now, simply select First-Year Community as one of the four preferences.
Information about the eight Living-Learning Centers and three Residential Colleges can be found on our website www.baylor.edu/CLL. This information is also found within the Housing Application on the Community Information page.
Campus Living & Learning will send housing assignments to students’ Baylor email accounts starting the second week of June.
If you complete your Housing Application later in the spring or summer, there is a possibility that you will be assigned to a temporary Expanded Occupancy space until a permanent room becomes available. These spaces will be assigned late in the summer and students will see an Estimated Housing Charge on their account until the permanent housing rate is applied.
If you no longer plan to attend Baylor, cancel your admission through goBAYLOR and your Housing Application will automatically be cancelled.
Both students who wish to live together must complete their Housing Application prior to May 1 to access Roommate Matching and select each other as roommates. If one roommate does not complete their Housing Application prior to May 1, their name will not appear in the Roommate Matching system.
Yes. You can still use the Roommate Matching system to find a compatible roommate; however, if you do not wish to use Roommate Matching, you may select any available room/bed space in the community of your choice and learn about the other student who chooses that room by clicking on their profile.
We recommend that you inform your current assigned roommate that you wish to choose a different roommate. You can then decline the roommate request you previously accepted and search for a new roommate within the Roommate Matching section of the Housing Application. You cannot search for a new roommate before declining the previously accepted request. All roommate requests and confirmations must be complete by the posted end date on the housing application.
Simply return to the Roommate Matching page in the Housing Application to search for a different roommate. All roommate requests and confirmations must be complete by the posted end date on the housing application.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept roommate requests from students who complete their Housing Application after May 1.
If you have a medical or psychological need for a specific type of accommodation, please contact the Office of Access and Learning Accommodation. This office will receive all the necessary documentation and make the request with our office.
The rate for each style room can be found on our Room Types & Rates page. You can also see the rate for the room when you choose it in the housing portal.
The roommate with the earliest timeslot should choose the room for the group. When you pick your room, you will also see a drop down box allowing you to assign your confirmed roommates. All students in the roommate group should check their housing portal to be sure they were assigned by their confirmed roommate before Choose Your Own Room week ends.
The most common on-campus room type is a double room with community style bath.
If there are singles available in the community of your choice when you access Choose Your Own Room, then you may select that space. Please note that there are very few single rooms on campus.
If you do not see the specific room or room type you desire, it is because another student has booked it. Certain residence halls/room types are chosen fast, so you should begin the Choose Your Own Room process with a few ideas of what type of room you would like.
We recommend that you look for a Double Room/Suite with a Shared Bath or Apartment Double Gold where multiple students can be suitemates.
Yes. After all students are assigned in June, we will open Room Swap in the housing portal for all students to see any open rooms in their approved community. You may move yourself as many times as you desire in that allotted time. Please remember that you must also reassign your confirmed roommate (if you have one) if space is available. Notification of the beginning of Room Swap will go to your Baylor email.
Once students are assigned their residence hall, they will be able to learn their move-in day. This information is posted on our Move In page.
Baylor loves to welcome our new students! We have over 1000 volunteers on campus waiting for you to arrive at your residence hall. You will be issued a Hang-Tag through your housing portal in July which will get you access to campus on your move-in day and time. Our volunteers will be ready to receive you when you pull up to your residence hall and we will do all the heavy lifting, toting your boxes and belongings to your room. Be sure to label everything with your full name, residence hall, and room number so nothing gets lost.
Students may visit their housing portal in July to print off their Hang-Tag. All students moving to Baylor will need to display this Hang-Tag on their dashboard so that our traffic controllers on-campus can guide you to your residence hall on move-in day. You will need one for each vehicle travelling to campus.
Students will receive their move-in timeslot on their housing portal. You also have the opportunity to change it on the portal. The only times available are from 8:00 am to noon as this is when our move-in volunteers will be on-campus ready to help you move-in.
