Housing and Dining

Your residential community at Stevens is your home away from home on your Stevens journey. Your residence hall is not just the place you will sleep; it’s the place where you connect and develop relationships with other students who have diverse backgrounds, perspectives and identities different from your own. Your residence hall is also the place where you further explore your own identities and beliefs. Living at Stevens provides you with the opportunity not only to be academically successful, but also to grow further into an engaged global citizen during your time at Stevens and beyond!

Congratulations on your acceptance to Stevens Institute of Technology! Please refer to the checklist below for helpful tips on what to do next!

Deferring Your Enrollment

First year applicants who have been offered admission to Stevens may submit a request to defer enrollment for one year. Requests must be submitted, in writing, to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions ([email protected]).  Deferment requests must be received prior to the first day of the fall semester for consideration. If approved, the following apply:

  • Deferred students must pay the required tuition deposit for the original term of entry.  The deposit will be credited to the new term of entry. 

  • Deferred students are expected to re-confirm their intention to enroll with the admissions office no later than January 15th.

The following guidelines apply when deferring enrollment:

  • Students may not defer their enrollment to attend another college or university.  If you choose to attend another college or university, your admission will be revoked and you will need to reapply as a transfer student.

  • Students may not defer their enrollment to apply to other colleges and universities during the period of deferment.  If it is discovered that you have attended or have applied to other institutions, your admissions may be revoked. 

  • Students who are granted approval to defer their enrollment should understand that their approval is contingent upon successful completion of any high school course work in progress at the time approval is granted. A final high school transcript indicating date of graduation must be forwarded to the Stevens Office of Undergraduate Admissions immediately upon graduation.

  • Though approval to defer one's enrollment is typically granted for one year, we may approve students to defer their enrollment for 2 or 3 years to complete compulsory military service or missionary work. Students will not be approved to defer their enrollment for 2 or 3 years in advance. Requests for a second or third year of deferred enrollment must be received no later than January 15th.
