Housing + Dining
Stephens College is your home-away-from- home.
By living on campus, you’re just steps away from friends, professors, classrooms, labs, dining and free laundry facilities! You’ll also have access to facility crews when needed and 24-hour, 7-day security. Halls have WiFi throughout. Common spaces allow for studying and meeting together. Residence hall staff plan special events throughout the year.
We have traditional residential halls, special housing communities and apartment-style suites and options — all with residential advisers and programming. We also have pet-friendly housing and halls where pets are not allowed.
Our centrally located dining hall offers lots of choices for hot meals, including vegetarian and vegan entrees.
There’s a made-to-order grill, fresh salad, fresh fruit and dessert bar. Our in-house chefs pay close attention to dietary needs and are inclusive of everyone in our campus community. Frequent food forums give all students the opportunity to help shape future menus.
Stamper Commons Dining Hall
Our dining hall in Stamper Commons is open throughout the day and is a great place to meet up with friends. Or choose an eco-friendly to-go carton if you need to grab breakfast, lunch or dinner on the run.
Kaldi’s Coffee in Columbia Foyer
Need an extra cup of Joe? We have a Kaldi’s coffee shop in the Columbia Foyer right on campus! Stars Café offers all sorts of caffeinated and decaf treats from Kaldi’s — a popular Columbia coffee shop — as well as specialty sandwiches and wraps, bagged chips, snack bars, bagels and more.
