Welcome to Baker House

Living in Baker House is more than having a place to sleep. It is also about connecting with others, building friendships, getting involved with the community, and expanding your learning beyond the classroom.

Our goal is to provide connection and support that helps make your university experience enriching, rewarding and fun.

Get ready to live in a campus community by reviewing our Residence Handbook. The Handbook serves as a guide for living in Baker House and includes information about: 

  • Baker House services
  • Policies
  • Administrative procedures
  • Community standards

Please familiarize yourself with them before moving in.
