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.

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, during weekdays in the mornings and late afternoons. The shuttle service will not run during weekends. 

The cost for the Spring 2018 Temporary Housing program is $45 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.
