Live where you learn.
At Baker, you'll feel at home.
Residence life at Baker College is your home away from home. Accommodations include spacious residence hall suites, apartments, or townhouses. Some residence living facilities are located on campus within easy walking distance of your classes, labs, library, and other campus facilities. Others are located within the community and some campuses offer free public transportation. Because Baker doesn't have curfews or mandatory schedules to follow, you can experience increased independence and responsibility in a comfortable, safe living environment.
When living on campus, you will be surrounded by people who share your interests and will have more free time to spend with other students and instructors. You can participate in study groups, clubs, and intramural teams, and enjoy all kinds of social, educational, and recreational activities. It's a wonderful opportunity to broaden your experiences, expand your social circles, and make friendships that can last a lifetime. It's the ultimate in freedom, friendship, and education.
