Residence Life

At Stevenson, we believe that students do not live and learn in a vacuum – they experience college life as a whole and our office is committed to enhancing both their academic and personal success. To that end, the Office of Residence Life staff educates and empowers students to thrive in a culturally diverse, civically-engaged, holistic living-learning community while fostering student development and life-long learning.

Just like there is a curriculum or syllabus in the classroom, a Residential Curriculum guides the learning that takes place in the residential community. The Residence Life professional staff identified the key needs of Stevenson’s resident population and designed a curriculum to address those needs, as well as connect to the Four Core Stevenson Values. This curricular approach was created to provide intentional learning opportunities for Stevenson residents.

The educational priority of our Residential Curriculum is to complement the academic curriculum with a residential curriculum that encourages the pursuit of the Stevenson Way. This is done by providing experiences and opportunities that encourage student development.

The Office of Residence Life at Stevenson utilizes the curriculum as a way to unite and educate our residents. Additionally, the curriculum is a way to streamline our involvement and efforts within the halls, as well as to improve resident connections within the halls and the greater campus community. The Residence Life staff has developed a curriculum to ultimately bring more meaning and purpose to Stevenson students’ on-campus living experience.

Stevenson’s residence halls are located on the Owings Mills campus, just 6.5 miles from the Greenspring campus. Shuttle service is provided to and from each campus daily. In addition, the halls are located within walking distance of retail shops and services. Students who wish to apply for housing must be enrolled as a full-time Stevenson University student and must adhere to any and all policies and procedures regarding campus living and student behavioral expectations. Housing is not guaranteed, but is offered based on availability. Returning residential students have priority in securing housing for the next year. A student’s residency and student behavioral history will be taken into account when determining their campus residency eligibility. The University reserves the right to determine each student’s final residential assignment.

Full-time Resident Directors and student Resident Assistants live and work in the residential complex and help foster a community atmosphere, promote positive student behavior, provide educational opportunities and assist students with daily living issues and concerns. Residence Life staff members work with Stevenson University Campus Security and Wellness Center staff members to assist students in emergency situations. All residential students and their guests are expected to be familiar with any and all Residence Life policies and procedures. Additional information regarding campus residential living is available through the Residence Life website or by contacting the Office of Residence Life in the Ratcliffe Community Center.
