New Baker College in Royal Oak delays opening for several months – The Oakland Press

Most of the construction work is completed on Baker College’s new location in Royal Oak, but classes expected to start this fall are being delayed until January 2023.

The $51 million, seven-story building houses 86,000 square feet on a site at 420 S. Lafayette, where the Kinsey-Garret Funeral Home used to be.

The college in a statement said the location will be at its new flagship campus.

Baker’s plan is to transfer all students from his Auburn Hills campus to Royal Oak. The college issued a statement when asked about the starting date for classes in the new location.

“Given the realities of the current timeline, Baker College has made the decision to continue classes at its Auburn Hills campus for the upcoming fall 2022 semester,” the statement said. “The new Royal Oak campus facility will be open to visitors beginning this fall, and classes will officially begin on-site in January 2023.”

Baker College said building a new campus is an ambitious undertaking even under ideal circumstances.
