Housing Community

“Christian brotherhood is not an ideal which we must realize; it is rather a reality created by God in Christ in which we may participate.” These words from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Life Together exemplify our goal for the community of Criswell Housing. We believe Christian community is neither a perfect ideal for which to strive, nor simply a place to sleep. Rather, it is an environment in which we actively participate in our faith by growing personally, intellectually, socially, and spiritually in order to be a light to our city and culture.


Year total: $5,900

Dallas is the 9th largest urban center in the US, covering 343 square miles with a population of over 1.2 million. This beautiful southern city also boasts a large international population, providing many opportunities for cross-cultural ministry. Although the city’s size may seem a bit intimidating at first, realizing the DFW area is made up of many different cities and suburbs next door to each other makes getting around much more manageable. Students find they are soon navigating like locals.

Restaurants and Coffee Houses

Dallas is populated with great restaurants and coffee shops, many of which are open late (which is a huge advantage around mid-terms and finals!). Authentic and unique restaurants that serve Vietnamese, Thai, and Mexican food, as well as chain restaurants like Schlotzsky’s, Starbucks, and Jimmy Johns, are within walking distance of the campus. Local favorites such as Twisted Root Burger Co., Two Sisters, Stackhouse Burgers, Sammy’s BBQ, the food trucks at Klyde Warren Park, and Houndstooth Coffee are just a short drive away.

Area Attractions

Students don’t have to go far to find weekend attractions when they need a study break. Criswell is located just blocks from Downtown and Uptown, which is home to the Dallas Museum of Art, American Airlines Center (home of the Dallas Mavericks, the Dallas Stars, and regular concerts), the Majestic TheaterNorthPark Center, and more. From shopping to entertainment, sporting events to family-friendly activities, our neighborhood offers something for everyone.


Student Housing Handbook 

Criswell College admits students who are Christians of good character, without regard or reference to race, national or ethnic origin, color, age, disability, or sex (except where regard to sex is required by the College’s religious tenets regarding gender and sexuality) to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of these classifications in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and other school-administered programs.
