The Criswell House System goes far beyond providing convenient, affordable, and quality housing for students. Primarily it serves as a vital network to maximize the student life experience as well as provide a framework within which students grow relationally, academically, and spiritually.
Residents live with two to four other students in a unit, and they will face the challenges and triumphs of daily life together. Building lifelong relationships, students are also challenged academically as they participate in student study groups or in classroom inspired discussions which provide opportunities to think deeply and critically.
Twice a month, residents attend meetings specifically focused on spiritual growth, where they are challenged to pursue Christ and are held accountable by fellow students. As students share their testimonies, pray together, and encourage one another they experience true gospel community.
Living in the middle of a thriving urban setting allows students multiple opportunities to serve the homeless, the elderly, international refugees, and more! Each semester residents participate in a community service project to meet needs in either the apartment complex or surrounding neighborhoods. Students are encouraged to continue their service to the community, and will discover several organizations and ministries in Dallas where they can get involved.
Students live in either the Treymore at Cityplace apartments or The Marquis on Gaston. Both are located just minutes from the Criswell College campus. The complexes are nestled in downtown Dallas where residents will experience first-hand the hustle and bustle of life in the city. Highway 75 is just minutes away from a multitude of restaurants, grocery stores, fitness centers, and places to shop.
All apartments are conveniently furnished in order to provide a smooth transition and relieve any stress on students to provide their own furniture.

Living in an apartment complex under Criswell College feels like another part of training for ministry. I feel like a missionary. Putting students in apartments (as opposed to dorms) was pure genius. There is already a strong desire among us students to minister to the people we see every day, whether they're on the walk home after class, or in the apartment next door. - Josh Taylor
I love having a roommate (or roommates) who I can relate to, are all believers, all students, and all of us are dealing with similar issues that we can help each other out with. I look forward to next semester when more girls come live with us and more people can experience the community that we have experienced. - Bryn Birt
The time I've gotten to spend with the other guys in the housing program is priceless. We've supported each other, prayed for each other, and grown together in Christ. I feel like we are living up to the standard of the Acts 2 Church, it's an exciting thing. - James Hutton
