The Stevens Summer Residential Experience
Housing and Dining
Housing is included in the program costs for all residential summer programs. Life on campus at Stevens Institute of Technology is comfortable and convenient. You will be paired with a roommate and stay in double-occupancy rooms in our residence halls, only steps away from your classes and labs, the Pierce Dining Room, the Health Service Center, and the Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. Athletic and Recreation Center. Then, of course, there's downtown Hoboken, recently named a Top 10 College Town by the Princeton Review! With restaurants and shops, Hoboken is a vibrant community with excitement that's just an easy walk down to Washington Street, two blocks off campus.
Meals are included in the program costs either at our on-campus dining hall, weekend catered meals, or through Ducks Bills at our on- and off-campus local merchants. Students will need money for their lunch on the weekend; we suggest approximately $15/day. Stevens is proud to offer a dining program complete with signature brands and menu selections that include just about every item you can imagine.
Resident Advisors and Counselors
The residential experience is much more than just living in a residence hall on campus. It's about careful supervision, a strong and supportive social network, numerous on-campus activities, and excursions all over New York City. Students are supervised by carefully selected Stevens students who have completed an intensive training program. These couselors and resident advisers are focused on the well-being of the students; the counselors do not have other jobs and are not taking classes. Staff and students get to know each other well. Resident advisers and counselors look after the safety of the students with the utmost care. Curfews and other safety measures are strictly enforced by the RAs during the evening hours; whereas, counselors take over the responsibility during the daytime. Resident advisers and counselors do everything possible to ensure that students have a productive and enjoyable summer. The first-day orientation is also an ice-breaking and getting-to-know-you session.
From lasting friendships to numerous on-campus activities and excursions throughout NYC, The Stevens Summer offers many opportunities to make the most of your summer both inside and outside the classroom. Enjoy a night out on a New York City dinner cruise. Take excursions to the South Street Seaport, Times Square, Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge. Watch movies under the stars in Hoboken’s Sinatra Park with breathtaking views of the New York City skyline. Break a sweat at our bowling alley, swimming pool and sand volleyball court or relax and play pool and watch tv in the Jacobus Center, all on the Stevens campus! During your free time, explore the city of Hoboken, one of the top 15 college towns in the country according to The Princeton Review.
