Residence Life

General Information

Residence Life is a vibrant community aimed to serve students in their academic journey as they transition to Dallas Baptist University. The Residence Halls are filled with a variety of students including new freshman, transfer students, returning upperclassmen, and even international students. Each Resident Hall is overseen by a Resident Director and additionally, each individual wing is overseen by a Resident Assistant. These individuals help foster relationships with new and returning students as well as aid in the adjusting to university life.
