Residence Halls | Lifelong Friendships Begin Here

More than just a place to sleep, your residence hall is your home away from home.

A Positive & Enriching Environment

Area coordinators and resident assistants provide advice and counsel as you adjust to residence hall life. Each member of the staff plans and coordinates educational and social activities throughout the academic year.

The Social Center of Your College Experience

Living on campus completes your college experience by allowing you to connect with friends, get involved and interact with faculty and staff. For this reason, full-time students must live on campus unless they qualify for a residency exemption.

After you are accepted for admission to Baker and decide to officially enroll, submit both the enrollment agreement and housing application. The enrollment agreement requires a $100 advance deposit, which reserves your place in the class as well as priority order in the residence hall room assignment process. Please return to the Office of Admission, Baker University, PO Box 65, Baldwin City, KS 66006.
