The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex

Pursuing your education at DBU is smart not only because of the outstanding faculty and programs but also because of the university's excellent location.

Big Opportunity

The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is a great place to live and learn. Its high-tech industry, central location, cost of living, and position in the international marketplace make Dallas/Fort Worth one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the United States.

Small Town Feel

Although DBU is located in the thriving, urban area of Dallas/Fort Worth, its 368-acre campus seems secluded in its picturesque, hill-country location. The campus provides an opportunity to be a part of a small community while taking advantage of tremendous opportunities. Read more about our campus.
