About University
Baylor University
Baylor University
Baylor University, a private christian university and a nationally ranked research institution, provides a vibrant campus community for more than 15,000 students by blending interdisciplinary research with an international reputation for educational excellence and a faculty commitment to teaching and scholarship.


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.

ICT services

Baylor supports online communications and web efforts through a hybrid organization that inlcudes Electronic Marketing, Electronic Communications (which are part of Baylor's Marketing and Communications division), and Internet Services (which is part of Information Technology Services). Despite the multiple budgetary organizations, the various departments function as one team.

Medical services

Baylor University Health Services provides comprehensive health services to Baylor University Undergraduate, Graduate, Law, and Seminary Students. Baylor faculty and staff are welcome to come to the Health Center to receive immunizations.

Student Life

Campus life

We cultivate a rich campus life that will help you grow intellectually, spiritually and emotionally. Whether you're enjoying Diadeloso (our campus-wide "Day of the Bear" celebration).

The Baylor campus is a beautiful place to be. But it's also a first-rate learning environment with excellent academic resources. From the East Village Complex, including Teal Residential College and Earle Hall, to our magnificent historic buildings, each space has been designed with students in mind.

In addition, Baylor's innovative Living-Learning Centers blend residence hall life with classrooms and faculty offices to create a place where students can collaborate with each other and with faculty on a daily basis.
