The famous Finnish architectAlvar Aaltodesigned this beautiful dormitory building. He described the building design as a mix between a ski lodge and a ship. His creative design promotes communication and interaction among all residents on six floors by having open study areas and lounges, as well as a luminous dining hall overlooking the Charles River. Whats more, because of the Wshaped design of the building, each room has a unique view of the river.

The ingenious wave-shaped building maximizes the number of rooms with a sunny southern exposure, orienting them at oblique angles to soften noise from Memorial Drive. Hanging staircases serve as the vertical access, providing an increasingly dramatic view of MIT as one ascends, and the dining pavilion with its moon garden lights affords wonderful views of the Charles River. Internationally recognized as a masterpiece of modernism, Baker was renovated several years ago for its fiftieth anniversary.

In part because of the residential experience it provides and its proximity to student life facilities including the Student Center and Athletic complexes, Baker House is popular among its residents. Year after year, Baker is thetop choice in the housing lottery. For the Class of 2013, almost twice as many freshmen chose Baker as their top choice (305) than the second most popular dorm (157; Simmons).

Although the architecture is magnificent, the students are what make Baker House an enjoyable and dynamic place to live! Baker House has students who are very active in house government, sports, leadership, performance, and about every activity on campus. At Baker House youll find a history of great traditions that make life in this dorm a social adventure.
