About Abilene Christian University

Our mission is to educate students for Christian service and leadership throughout the world. We do so by providing a Christian environment in which we foster academic excellence through progressive education, real-world learning opportunities, and faculty-guided research. Along with on-campus learning environments such as the Maker Lab and the Learning Studio, we also provide practical application opportunities and study abroad programs in several countries.

Almost 100 campus organizations give students various venues for involvement and leadership. Aside from the important social aspect, these organizations also often provide service opportunities for students.

We believe in the overall development of our students, including physical health, along with spiritual and intellectual development. The $21 million Royce and Pam Money Student Recreation and Wellness Center encourages wellness of the whole individual - body, mind and spirit.

Campus information

Here at ACU we strive to work in partnership with Academic Affairs to integrate living, learning, and faith, whereby students learn to live lives of Christian service and leadership throughout the world. Our goal is to combine what our students learn in the classroom with practical application that will prepare them for real-world experiences. This website is divided into four different sections: Student Involvement, Student Services, Residence Life Education & Housing, and our Policies and Procedures.

The defining city of West Texas, Abilene was founded in 1881 and is a place where the frontier spirit is still applied to discovery, development and creativity. As a regional center, Abilene offers social, religious, athletic and cultural activities associated with cities twice its size.


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.In short, residential living is an integral part of the ACU undergraduate experience. 

Residence Life Education and Housing at ACU demands that each member of its residential community be treated with respect, dignity, integrity, and compassion, reflective of Christ's love. It is our mission that students will leave their residential community as developed individuals, confident in their relationship with God, their leadership call to the world, and able to mediate and solve conflict in a complex and diverse global community. 

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. It is here that students are pushed, stretched, moved, inspired, and called to the transformative life of following Christ in community. 

We take residential living and learning seriously: learning to respond to conflict with humility and maturity, developing integrity and taking responsibility for ones actions, balancing the strenuous demands of university life with inherent responsibilities from God, family, friends, and life, and through faith, overcoming adversity.
