Welcome to University Housing
Director of University Housing
Welcome to DBU Housing! My name is Jacob Winslager, and I serve as the Director of University Housing and I want to personally welcome you as you transition to DBU and consider living on campus. I hope that our website can be of assistance as you gather information about the on-campus apartments and consider the opportunity of joining the Apartment Life community. Our office is located in the Ebby Halliday Center on the southeast side of campus. Each of our staff is dedicated to serving you during this time of transition, and we hope to be of help during your educational experience. In conjunction with receiving a Christ-centered, quality education, University Housing hopes to extend the scholastic experience beyond the classroom and into the housing environment as you grow in community through fellowship. At DBU, we believe that true transformation takes place when you commit yourself to authentic, Christ-centered community.
"How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!" Psalm 133:1
This verse embodies the mission of the University Housing office as we seek to engage residents in community events, ministry, and service opportunities. To live together with other followers of Christ is a gift from God, and it is our prayer that lifelong friendships begin here on University Hill.
We are so thankful that you are a part of the Dallas Baptist University family, or are at least considering joining this wonderful university. Please let us know if there is any way we can assist you during this time. We hope to see you soon.
Assistant Director of Apartment Life
When I think of University Housing, I think of community. We all need one another at various times and in different ways. As part of DBU’s mission to integrate faith and learning, I have found that an integral part of student learning is in developing the much needed bonds of relationship that are a natural outflow of learning and doing life with one another. What better place to find these relationships taking shape then in University Housing.
Being an alumna of DBU myself and having served as the Assistant Director of Apartment Life for several years now, I have a front row seat to observe these deep bonds of friendship develop over time as our residents do life together. My most cherished times are when I have the opportunity to meet weekly with students to disciple and mentor them.
