Residential Life

Welcome to Stevenson College Residential Life!

The Cowell and Stevenson Residential Life and Housing Office 

The Cowell and Stevenson Residential Life and Housing Office is open Monday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.



The college experience isn’t only about what you learn in the classroom, but it’s also about the learning that goes on outside of the classroom. Residential Life is about the experiences you have in your residential houses with your roommates and hallmates, in your rooms, and in the residential lounges and quads. Learning happens at the social, educational, and multicultural programs that are specially designed for you by residential and programming staff and can just as easily happen over a cup of coffee in the Stevenson Coffee House with other students, staff or faculty.
