There are many resources available to our commuter students as they make the adjustment to life at Stevens. The Commuter Student Association is an active student organization that represents the interests of commuting students, helps orient new commuters, arranges social activities and makes sure commuters are represented in all aspects of student life. For commuters who opt to use public transportation, the Hoboken Terminal is well-served by NJ Transit trains and buses, the PATH train and NY Waterway. NJ Transit offers discounts for commuter students. For more information, visit stevens.edu/visit/public-transportation.

Stevens is located in the City of Hoboken, a walkable, urban center that is one mile square and has many options for public transportation and ride shares (including the Stevens Shuttle). Students are encouraged to commute to campus by foot, bicycle, public transit or carpool, in lieu of driving alone. Student parking at Stevens is restricted to commuter students who reside outside of Hoboken, students with disabilities related to mobility, students participating in co-op positions that are inaccessible by public transportation and qualifying AFROTC/ROTC students.

Stevens has been recognized as the safest campus in New Jersey and one of the safest colleges in the nation. The safety and welfare of our students are a top priority, and Stevens helps to ensure this with a tight-knit community and strong team effort. Safety measures on campus include an accessible and skilled Campus Police team, a broad security camera system, a safe ride system through the Stevens Shuttle, student training and education, an Emergency Management Team and an emergency text and email alert system. Information regarding signing up for the emergency text alert system will be shared with students closer to their arrival on campus.
Stevens Guardian is a mobile app that turns any cell phone into a personalized protection network. It connects you directly with Stevens Campus Police during an emergency and provides important information instantly. Through this app, students are able to make fast-response panic calls, have police locate you in an emergency through GPS, set safety networks and timers to notify trusted friends of your whereabouts, and send anonymous crime tips to Stevens Campus Police.
Stevens Laptop Program
All students need to bring a laptop to campus for use in Stevens courses. The laptop you bring must meet minimum technical standards in order to run the software applications used at Stevens and to be compatible with our network and core systems. Stevens has established a partnership with Dell and Apple that allows you to purchase high-quality, commercial-grade laptops and accessories at discounted prices. University students carry their laptops to classes in backpacks, use them in the library and in student dining, and generally count on them to last for at least four to five years of heavy use. Commercial-grade laptops are much more durable and resistant to breakage. Their components are better as well. For all the above reasons, you will find that the laptops offered through this program are commercial grade and hence may cost a little more than discounted, consumer-class computers you find online or in-store. Please visit stevens.edu/laptopprogram or call 201.380.6599 for more information and specifications by program of study.
