Welcome to East Texas Baptist University's Residence Life: Home on the Hill! ETBU is primarily a residential campus with approximately 85% of our students living in our residential facilities. For this reason, Residence Life has an opportunity to greatly impact your time at ETBU. We value the idea of community which promotes real relationships, deep conversations, and a safe and welcoming living-learning environment. Each of our residence halls is staffed with a professional staff member (Resident Director) and a para-professional Resident Assistant staff (varying between 4-12 RA’s per residence hall).
Residence Life at ETBU has a lot to offer – we encourage you to get involved! Each hall provides a variety of community building events and sponsors one all-campus event each year. Aside from the structured events, we encourage you to get to know your neighbors and hall-mates. ETBU is a tight-knit community and we encourage you not to let this opportunity to build relationships pass you by. Residence Life is the place to build friendships and to create long-lasting memories.
