Temporary Housing for Graduate Students

Graduate Student Life offers temporary housing at a reduced rate for new, incoming Stevens graduate students. This housing is offered specifically to new graduates to allow students a short amount of time to find permanent housing in the area for the school year.

Advance registration is REQUIRED. Stevens is unable to house students who have not made the necessary arrangements ahead of time. Information regarding registration for this service will be sent directly to the email address you provided when initially applying to Stevens Institute of Technology. Registration information will be emailed to all new graduate students.

Dates for Temporary Housing for Fall 2024: August 12 through September 3

Room Details and Rates

Temporary Housing costs are $75 per person per night for single occupancy (the typical cost at the hotel is $250 per night). Rooms that are found with more than one occupant will be charged the full amount per night. 

All rooms at the hotel have full-sized beds, one couch, one television, and an attached full bathroom. Bedding and bath towels are provided. WiFi is available. Meals are not included.
