COMMUNITYDallas Christian College offers student an intimate, personal setting where you can gain not only a top education, but life-long mentoring relationships that will last way after college. "People here are family!" You'll hear this phrase over an over again. From working together on an inner city project, to traveling on mission trips together, the DCC community is just that - family.

Each air-conditioned room is designed for two or three students, with two-room suites sharing private bath and toilet facilities. The student furnishes linens, is responsible for the appearance and care of the room, and shares in the general housekeeping of the residence hall.
Televisions, microwaves, and refrigerators are allowed. If available, private rooms require permission of the Residence Director and will be at added expense.
A residence hall reservation and damage deposit of $150 is required to reserve a room. This deposit is used to defray the cost of unusual damage caused by improper care of the residence hall. A student can expect a full refund of the housing deposit following their final exit from the dorm if no damage has been incurred.

Christian Service happens when Biblical truths leave the classroom and enter the world. When DCC’s students “use” their faiths, they truly understand the essence of Christian spiritual growth. Therefore, DCC’s Christian Service programs are designed to teach our students the discipline and the joy of serving in Christ’s name. DCC’s Christian Service requirements are as follows:
- Chapel attendance (Traditional and Quest students)
- Christian service reports
- Church attendance
- Day of Service participation (Traditional students)
- Illuminate! attendance (Traditional students)
