About the Community


Hi everyone! If you are looking for a great place to live on the water with excellent proximity to campus and great people, Baker is the place for you! A diverse community, with many athletes and scholars from around the world, Baker is a place where everyone becomes comfortable with everyone. The social spaces are always used to hang out and study, and the rooms are nice and open to everyone. Baker also has a great dining hall right downstairs that attracts students from other dorms to come and eat. Every room has a sink, which proves incredibly useful, and comes with nice furniture and often times couches. The Baker residents are known for being very social and friendly, and so Baker tends to become a place to congregate on the weekends to hang out, or on weekdays to work in the lounges! Overall, Baker is a great community where you can meet great people, make great friends, and have a ton of fun while making your way through an awesome time here at MIT!
