Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology offers on-campus
living arrangements in residence halls for approximately
400 students. Students who plan to live in one of the
residence halls should bring their own pillows, blankets,
linens, bedspreads, mattress pad, fan, and towels. Radios,
televisions, and stereo systems are permitted provided they
are used in consideration of roommates and other residents
of the floor.
All Stevens Grant students are eligible to live on campus.
After Grant students are accommodated, any additional
rooms are made available on a rental basis to nonscholarship students.
Residence halls have similar amenities including laundry
facilities, cable TV hook-up, two computer jacks for internet
access, telephone access, and recreation rooms which
contain TVs, pool tables, and in some areas, ping-pong
tables. All rooms are air conditioned and have fire alarm and
Within the dorms, the College expects that students will
maintain their rooms in a clean and sanitary condition for the
purposes of good hygiene and appearance. Moreover, each
residence hall has professional supervision, but within the
governing framework, students are directly involved in the
operation of their respective halls via an elected Residence
Hall Council. As such, students have the opportunity to
establish activities; draft policies and procedures; enhance
conflict resolution and communication skills; and play an
integral role in making the residence halls a wholesome
living and learning environment.
Note: A student who requests housing accommodations due
to a disability must complete the housing accommodations
request form (which is available on the College website) and
provide the appropriate documentation to the special needs
coordinator for review and accommodations approval.
Housing away from the campus is all privately owned and is
separate and independent of the College. The College does
not own, operate, or supervise these properties. Information
regarding off-campus housing is available from the director
of residence life.
The Thaddeus Stevens College Branch Campus has allowed
the College to expand and provide student services in
multiple areas. In addition to residential space, there is a
recreation center, nursing station, and a computer/study
lab available for student use. Student peer tutors are also
available during posted hours for academic programs
located at the Branch Campus.
