Residence Life Education & Housing


The heart and life-blood of Abilene Christian University is community.  Here, community exists in many forms: a diverse community of faith, an extraordinary academic community and a vibrant residential community.  ACU is steadfast in our commitment to a residential, co-curricular environment that enhances and deepens the academic and faith communities. 

Welcome to Residence Life

Students arrive at ACU from every state and from over 60 nations world-wide, providing a diverse and radical life-altering experience. At its best, living in community encourages the collision of new ideas, student development, dialogues, and personal growth. Each ACU student is challenged daily to balance their personal heritages, life stories, experiences, and beliefs with those of other individuals and the greater community.
