What Are the Benefits of Living on Campus at Baylor?


Being housed by the University will help you to settle in, meet other students, and become an active member of the community. 


Within walking distance you'll have access to all the on-site facilities - such as events, support services, and dining halls - making it easy to get involved.


By being near the faculty you'll build relationships with your teachers and other staff so you always have someone you can go to for support: academic, spiritual or emotional.


Being on campus also means you will be surrounded by other students who are also adjusting to their new environment, so you'll be able to make friends easily and learn about your new space together.

There Are Plenty of Choices

There are 11 residence halls on campus, split into single, double, triple rooms and apartments so there is plenty of choice depending on what you’re looking for. Whichever you choose you will have your own bed, desk, chair and wardrobe and you can make your room your own by bringing decorations from home or photos of friends and family.
