A Campus Rising, For a University on the Rise
Investment in the expansion and modernization of Stevens' infrastructure have been an integral part of President Nariman Farvardin's vision for the university since he assumed office in 2011. Continual campus upgrades and additions signify Stevens' concomitant growth in size, impact and national reputation.
Over the last five years, the university had added a host of new facilities and upgraded existing structures, including the ABS Engineering Center, the Hanlon Financial Systems Center, the North Building, the Ruesterholz Admissions Center, the expansion of the Babbio Garage, the Student Wellness Center and Stevens Student Center.
In fall 2019, Stevens opened one of the showpieces of its expansion efforts, the Gateway Academic Center: a $68 million, 89,500-square-foot, premier teaching and research facility featuring ten smart classrooms, 13 labs, 45 faculty offices and numerous student study spaces.
Another major addition to Castle Point is currently under construction: the Student Housing and University Center, scheduled to open during the 2021-22 academic year. The three-story, 70,000-square-foot university center will become the heart of campus life, featuring flexible spaces for student organizations, academic conferences, fitness, recreation, dining and more. Two residential towers rising above the university center will provide on-campus accommodations for nearly 1,000 students in single, double and suite-style apartments.
