Living on campus opens you to all of the experiences Stevenson University has to offer. Beyond our rigorous academic curriculum and career preparation programs, we have created a warm, welcoming environment for our students to develop through personal interaction and a variety of campus programs.
Located on the Owings Mills Campus, Stevenson's residence halls are comfortable and modern. Students are assigned to a community, based on their class year, and will have the opportunity to live in both suite style and apartment style housing shared by up to four students throughout their Stevenson career. Our students are active leaders in our community. Students and staff partner to plan engaging programs, promote responsible decision-making, and resolve conflict. We believe in supporting the complete student that grows both personally and academically in their time here at Stevenson.
Few colleges can compare to the residential living Stevenson provides. From day one, students move into suite-style residences with private bathrooms, closets and a kitchenette that includes a microwave and mini-fridge. With access to dining, activities and athletic events, students are never short on something to do. By living on campus, students get to experience all that Stevenson has to offer, including athletics events, arts programming and participation in a variety of student organizations.
Residence Halls are located on our Owings Mills Campus with close proximity to on-campus dining, campus-to-campus shuttle services, and security that is present 24/7. All students that live in the residence halls are permitted to have a car on campus and can even park in the lots next to their building. Shuttle service is provided between campuses to make getting to and from class easy.
We developed an Upperclass Suite community with multiple floor layout options to accommodate the needs of second year and higher students. And, if our suite style residence halls are among the best in the region, nobody can match our on-campus apartments. The apartment-style residences include private bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen including a stove, oven, dishwasher, full refrigerator and pantry.
A spacious, fully-furnished living room gives students space to stretch out and spend time with friends. Stevenson strives to give students the comfort of home as they grow and develop, socially and academically.
Before checking out any local apartment complexes, consider living on campus in our apartment-style residences. With private bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open living space with couches and tables, and a full pantry and refrigerator, our apartment-style residences rival or surpass any off-campus options.
All of our residence halls, both suites and apartments, were built within the last 15 years, assuring you the modern conveniences of home. Apartment-style residences on the Owings Mills Campus meet or exceed the offerings of off-campus apartment complexes while giving students better access to on-campus activities.
Apartments are based on space and availability.

Residential Curriculum provides an intentional framework to educate students outside of the classroom. Just like there is a curriculum or syllabus in the classroom, a Residential Curriculum guides the learning that takes place in the residential community. This curricular approach was created to provide intentional learning opportunities for Stevenson residents. This learning is centered around Stevenson’s Four Core Values (integrity, learning, community, and excellence) as these have become our learning goals. We utilize several strategies to foster these learning goals.
Intentional conversations are the foundation of Residential Curriculum. Mustang Meetups are one-on-one conversations between a Resident Assistant and a resident. They can occur anywhere on campus and should be around 20 minutes in length. RAs will be a given a lesson plan that contains suggested questions to help guide the conversation as well as a learning goal that the conversation should be centered around.
Bulletin boards are a great way to communicate our Residential Curriculum learning goals in a fun, creative way. RAs will be given a lesson plan with detailed instructions as to which learning goal the bulletin board should be focused on.
Monthly community builders are another way we have RAs build relationships and connections on their floor. These community builders can be a consistent activity or a new activity each month. These are activities that get residents connected to campus more and/or each other.
Roommate agreements are facilitated by every RA in each area. The roommate agreements should happen within the first two weeks of classes and updated whenever a new individual moves in or out of the room. These agreements hold residents accountable and make them discuss certain issues with their roommates.
These occur twice per semester and are one of the main responsibilities of the RAs. The events will follow the learning goal based off of what residents need or want to learn more about.
Of the Month Nominations
Of The Month nominations are a way to recognize a person, program or a group of people. They provide recognition to a person, group or program that might not be otherwise recognized. OTMs serve to congratulate and acknowledge the positive accomplishments of the campus community while also encouraging continued effort and even greater achievement. OTMs make people feel good! A short essay describing the outstanding achievements during the past month is what constitutes as a OTM submission. OTMs are always due at 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the month.
Overall, we believe the curricular approach both unites and educates our residents. Additionally, the curriculum is a way to streamline our involvement and efforts within the halls as well as improving resident connections within the halls and the greater campus community. We believed this approach will bring more meaning and purpose to Stevenson students’ on-campus living experience.
The Faculty in the Halls initiative began in the Fall of 2013 and has become an excellent way to engage residents and faculty outside of the classroom. Currently this initiative exists in the First Year Area and Upperclass Suites. Resident Directors will continue to work with faculty through this initiative to engage residents in faculty programming in the residence halls. Generally faculty hold evening hours once per week in their designated buildings and offer at least one program each month.
Resident students must be enrolled full-time, maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA, and adhere to the Stevenson code of behavior for student housing. Space is limited. Accepted students are encouraged to commit to living on campus as soon as possible.
