  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

4.14 Average Rating
I know I made the right choice,great location, people, and academics. with a somewhat low key atmosphere
Joseph from Brielle, NJ
Stevens is one of the best engineering schools in the country. The school's location is a perfect mix of urban and suburban environments. If you choose to attend this school you won't regret it.
DeAnna from MD
There are not many major choices outside of engineering however it offers a great education in all of the majors. As an athlete I enjoy the feeling of family in the team and the school. It is a large campus but still small enough to get to classes quickly.
April from Corona, CA
Stevens is the perfect way to experience a beautiful small college while being a 5 minute train ride from New York City. You receive personal attention in classes, and are part of a Division 3 athletics power house. It truly is the best of both worlds.
Sarah from Prince Frederick, MD
Don't be fooled by the small size of Stevens. Stevens is a great school. Both the faculty and the students who go there are incredibly supportive and want you to succeed.
Anna from Fountain Valley, CA
Stevens is a great small school. Teachers are very attentive to your individual needs and classes challenge you at every level. The best part of this school is the community, you have NYC right across the river, but there is so much to do in Hoboken you don't even have to go into New York.
Rebecca from Spencerport, NY
Stevens presents a great community. There are lots of opportunities when it comes to internships and job experience. The education is of great quality, and all students thrive for success.
