TEMPORARY HOUSING THROUGH STEVENS

Stevens and OGSA offer temporary housing for new, incoming Stevens graduate students at very affordable rates. This housing is offered to allow students a short amount of time to find permanent housing in the area for the school year. Temporary housing is offered at a hotel located approximately 1.5 miles from campus. You must register in advance for temporary housing. Stevens is unable to house students who have not made the necessary arrangements ahead of time. 

Students registering for Temporary Housing must fill out the registration form. Registration is available below. 


Room Details and Rates

The hotel is located approximately one mile north of the Stevens Institute of Technology campus. There will be a shuttle service that runs between the hotel and Stevens, at certain times in the day (approximately one hour of service each morning, and one hour of service each afternoon/evening).

The cost for the Fall 2016 Temporary Housing program will be finalized soon. The cost is $35 per person per night for a double occupancy room (normal cost at the hotel is $250 per night). The cost is per person with two people per room. All rooms at the hotel have 2 full-sized beds, one couch, one television, and attached full bathroom. Bedding and bath towels are provided. Hotel gym and WiFi is available. Meals are not included. 


Dates and Deadlines

Temporary housing availability begins the evening of Monday, August 1. The last evening is Sunday, August 28, with a checkout date/time of no later than Monday, August 29 at 12:00 PM noon. Students must check out of the hotel and vacate the room by 12:00 p.m. on their last day.


Cancellation/No-Show Policy

Last day of cancellation for a 100% refund is July 29, at 8:00 AM (Eastern time). If you cancel after this date and time, there will be a $200 cancellation charge assessed, the rest will be refunded. No refunds will be given for nights reserved but not used (for example, if you reserve a room for 10 nights but only stay for 8 nights, you will still be charged for all 10 nights).
