As one of the chief components accompanying the educational experience, Dallas Baptist University aims to provide excellent on-campus living by offering several housing options to help students transition to life on their own. It has been proven that living on campus versus living off campus can drastically affect the college experience. While being surrounded by a supportive, encouraging staff and community, students can experience a variety of cultures and engage in Christ-centered service, events, and living-learning opportunities. DBU on-campus housing aims to cultivate the holistic development of the student academically, socially, physically, and spiritually. First-year students begin their academic journey in the Residence Halls and as they grow in their academics and independence, more housing options are made available to upperclassmen in the Colonial Village Apartments and Williamsburg Village Townhomes and Brownstones.
