12: Student Residences

As undergraduate enrollment has grown throughout the past decade, so has the need for undergraduate housing. In recent years, Stevens has only had space to house first-year students in on-campus residence halls (returning students could either secure off-campus housing through the university or make other living arrangements independently). The UCC’s residence towers have made it possible for almost 1,000 returning students to continue their on-campus experience, keeping them close to friends, minimizing the commute to classes and club meetings, and creating round-the-clock opportunities for community building.

Rooms are available in a variety of configurations, accommodating one to four students. All are equipped with large windows, a private bathroom and a kitchenette. Some larger rooms also have a central living area. At the east end of each hallway on every floor is a lounge area with floor-to-ceiling windows and incredible views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline.

The Stevens Indicator asks:

“What’s the best thing about living in the University Center towers?”

“…The expansive glass panes throughout the building provide an astonishing view of the New York City skyline, Stevens campus and City of Hoboken.” — Rai Bindra, Class of 2025

“…Being able to study in my room with a beautiful view of the city in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of working there one day.” — Caroline Koniarski, Class of 2025

“…Knowing that my friends are all right down the hall from me.” — Suraj Bose, Class of 2025

“…The architecture and the way the whole building is lit up on a sunny day. Being in the dorms looking out at the New York skyline makes me feel like I'm on top of the world. It's like getting a glimpse at my future!” — Lillian Haebler, Class of 2025

…I’m living on campus and am so close to all my Stevens resources, yet I also feel like I’m at my second home.” — Faith Avila, Class of 2024

…The proximity to campus. Last year, I didn't go to many clubs or activities because they were too far away and too late. This is my first year on campus, since [classes were] virtual my freshman year. I just love walking outside and seeing friendly faces that I recognize right away!” — Josie Cerino, Class of 2024
