College in the nation, named by Cappex in its 2015 review of more than 2,000 U.S. colleges and universities.
The safety and welfare of our students is a top priority and Stevens helps to ensure this with a tight-knit community and strong team effort. From our caring staff members to campus police to fellow students, Stevens works hard to keep our campus safe. The result? The Stevens campus has been recognized as the safest campus in New Jersey and one of the safest colleges in the nation.
Our highly experienced Stevens Police Department, a 24/7 operation stationed right on campus, keeps our students safe by regularly patrolling the campus, as well as off-campus housing. The Stevens Police Department maintains a very close relationship with the Hoboken Police Department. In fact, several Stevens police officers formerly worked with the HPD or worked closely with them in prior law enforcement positions.
Additionally, the department offers safety training and crime prevention programs for students that begin at freshman orientation and are held throughout the year. Topics have included “Do’s and Don’ts” of campus safety; preventing sexual assault; cyber harassment and crime; combating bicycle thefts; even how to change a tire. Stevens makes a true community effort, with the Offices of Student Life and Residence Life and trained resident assistants (RAs), to get to know students and form strong relationships and trust.
