Residence Halls

When you think about college residence halls, the first thing that probably comes to mind are the typical college dorms or dorm rooms. But Baker College offers housing options that aren't so typical. While housing options vary by campus, you can choose to live in a townhouse, apartment, or a residence hall suite. You can also choose from housing located either on, or directly adjacent to campus, or within the local community with free public transportation connecting you to the campus.

Convenient

For full-time Baker College students, campus living offers convenience and all the comforts of home. You'll be just a short walk or ride away from your classes, instructors, labs, the learning center, and other facilities. Some of the basic furnishings you'll find within your residence hall unit include a bed, dresser, desk, kitchen table, chairs and appliances such as a refrigerator and range. We provide all utilities, including cable TV and high-speed Internet, along with amenities such as laundry facilities, 24-hour security, free parking, and many other services.

Friendly

At Baker, you'll experience independence along with responsibility. There are no curfews or mandatory meal times. You decide how you want to spend your free time, whether it's studying, socializing, or just sleeping in. Campus living gives you the opportunity to participate in everything from intramural sports, to informal get-togethers or study groups.

Affordable

Baker residence halls operate on a not-for-profit basis, so they are likely to be the most affordable, quality housing you'll find on or near campus.
