22 Things to Love About the University Center Complex

In late August, Castle Point was buzzing with excitement and activity as Stevens faculty and staff welcomed students back to campus to begin the Fall 2022 semester. About 1,000 of these students are truly “lucky ducks” — they are the first occupants of Stevens’ soaring new residential towers, part of the dazzling University Center Complex. This state-of-the-art facility boasts unobstructed views of Manhattan’s skyline, a brand-new fitness center, myriad dining options, conference and meeting spaces, recreation areas and so much more.

The opening of the University Center Complex has fostered a renewed feeling of community at Stevens, allowing more students than ever to live on campus, and creating a hub where students, faculty, staff and alumni can better engage with each other on Castle Point.

“Whether you’re a student looking to recharge between classes, a faculty member connecting with peers over lunch, a staff member grabbing a coffee between meetings or an alum stopping by on a visit back to campus, the University Center Complex is for you,” says Sara Klein, Stevens’ vice president for Student Affairs. “This is a home for every one of us.”

On every floor and around every corner of the 395,000-square-foot facility, there are spaces, amenities and views to delight residents and visitors alike. Here, The Stevens Indicator highlights 22 Things to Love — big and small — about the University Center Complex.
