Welcome to Residence Life at DBU! As the Director of Residence Life, I want to thank you for considering joining the DBU community as a student. The information below is designed to give you a brief overview of life as a resident at DBU and highlight the important aspects of on-campus living. The Office of Residence Life is designed to be an extension of classroom learning and to provide valuable life experience in the educational process.
These living and learning environments provide students with opportunities to develop interpersonal skills, to increase their understanding of different cultures, and to learn self-discipline in organizing their time for study, work, and social activities.
Living among other students also enhances personal growth through relationships with roommates and other residents. Many of these relationships will continue long after your time at DBU has concluded, developing into lifelong friendships.
I am excited that you are considering Dallas Baptist University to continue your education and look forward to meeting you in the near future.
Williams Hall - Male Residence Hall
Williams Hall is set up as a suite-style residence hall with five students sharing a bathroom. There are five Resident Assistants who are here to help out with anything you need. From the annual Williams vs. Lange football game, to eating out at various places, to service and concerts around the metroplex, we strive to keep things fun while allowing you to grow.
Lange Hall - Male Residence Hall
Lange Hall is identical to Williams Hall. Rooms are set up as suites with no more than five residents sharing a bathroom. Lange Hall also has five Resident Assistants who actively serve and engage in the lives of the residents. RAs are one of the primary advantages of life in the residence halls and they ensure each student is personally welcomed and provide a social atmosphere that makes adjusting to college easy. While each residence hall is unique in its own culture and traditions, each is similar in its attempt to build community and support students throughout their living experience.
Crowley Complex - Female Residence Hall
Crowley Hall is one of the two female residence halls here at DBU. Crowley is a community oriented living environment. You will only have one roommate, the girls on your hall will share a community bathroom, and one big perk is that the DBU Dining Hall is located in the building. The RAs make living in Crowley very exciting and home-like.
Spence Hall - Female Residence Hall
Spence Hall is one of the female residence halls at DBU. In Spence there are six RAs, one on each hall. The RAs are responsible for planning hall events each month, conducting meetings, and just being available for their girls. The rooms are set up suite style, where two rooms of girls share one bathroom.
Jewel House - for Women
The Jewel House is located on the first floor of Spence Hall and houses 18 freshman females and 4 upperclassman mentors.The purpose of Jewel House is to encourage and support each other to become the virtuous women God has called you to be.

The Jewel House is designed with four apartment-style units. Each unit has two or four bedroom clusters, a living and dining space, bathroom(s), washer and dryer, and kitchenette with sink, microwave, and refrigerator.
