You'll love living at Stephens College. Our residential halls are conveniently located just minutes away from academic buildings, where you'll not only attend classes and meet with instructors but also where you'll find yourself using computer, design, fashion and science labs between classes.
We offer a variety of housing options to make sure Stephens is comfortable and affordable. You may choose to live in a community-style hall, where you'll share a large bathroom (that our custodial crews will keep clean for you!) or suite-style rooms, where two rooms share a private bathroom.
All of our rooms include two beds with standard twin-sized mattresses, desks, chairs and dressers. And there are options to customize your room, including a chance to paint with permission and for a fee.
Every hall has a full kitchen and vending machines if you want to grab a snack while enjoying TV, complete with VCR and DVD players, in the lounges. Each hall has a computer lab with a laser-quality printer open 24 hours, as well as wireless Internet access.
And in our residential halls, students can use our washers and dryers to do laundry for free!
All residential halls are locked 24 hours and have 24-hour access to campus security and residential life employees.
By living on campus, you will be among a community of Stephens women who can be great friends and study partners. You'll also be close to the numerous social programs and activities we host on campus all year.
Take a look at our housing options. Remember that our rooms are unique.*
