The College of Engineering and Architecture and the College of Sciences strongly encourage incoming freshmen to sign up for the Stephenson Towers, which offers a living/learning community for students interested in science, engineering and math. Why? Because students who share a living/learning experience, like that offered in the Stephenson Towers, consistently do better academically than students who go it alone. Exposing you and your fellow science, engineering and math students to culture, concepts and careers in these fields tends to sustain motivation in your classes. Additionally, the living/learning experience at the Stephenson Towers creates a community of students sharing a major who will become your foundation for support during your years here at WSU and beyond.

Benefits of living in the Stephenson Complex include:

  • The opportunity to come together with students who share a common academic purpose, encouraging the strong development of college-level study and learning skills. It's a close-knit and empowering community to help you achieve your academic goals.
  • Free, tutor-assisted study halls in science and math, offered Sunday through Thursday evenings.
  • Out-of-class programming specific to science and engineering, including lectures from successful alumni, student professional club demonstrations and career information in science and technology.
  • Opportunity to earn merit-based scholarships, specifically for students living in the Stephenson Towers.
  • Close proximity to engineering and science classroom buildings. The Stephenson Towers are located near the mathematics and physical science buildings and also near the College of Engineering and Architecture.
  • The Stephenson Towers offer recently remodeled rooms.

Stephenson Complex consists of three high-rise towers, Stephenson East, Stephenson North and Stephenson South, all connected by Stephenson Center. Each hall is co-ed by house (alternating floors). Known as "The Towers," they have a convenience store and a large "down under" where many dances and activities are held. 

The Stephenson Towers also houses the Towers Convenience Store where you'll find a variety of items from sundries to snacks and sodas. For regular meals though, Southside Café is the nearest dining facility.
