Baker Hall

Built in 1968, Baker Hall was named after Edwin P. Baker, a long time professor and Dean at McKendree University. Though the hall was originally built as a male only residential facility, Baker is now a traditional style co-ed by floor residence hall with a laundry room and large community bathroom on each floor.  Baker Hall also has a lounge on the first floor that can be used for study groups, meetings, programs, individual studying, and socializing.  Baker is conveniently located on main campus next to Ames Dining Hall.
