Life at Pre-College

College Town Life. Big City Access.

Stevens gives you a taste of everything, starting with our location: a scenic campus, in a vibrant town, next to a world-class metropolis.

With just enough freedom for when you want to feel independent and just enough social life and guidance for when you don’t, we’ve designed a college experience for you that will only heighten your excitement for the real thing. Discover why our stunning, 55-acre campus overlooking the Hudson River and New York City skyline is the perfect place to give college life a try.

Your Stay at Stevens

You will share a room in one of our residence halls with a roommate(s), who will be specially selected for you based on your application.
