Housing services

Living on-campus at Baylor, students will experience a supportive Christian environment with people and services in place to help them achieve personal growth and academic success.

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.

While committed to a focus on the British-born poets Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, the Armstrong Browning Library is a 19th-Century research center.
