Stevens

Stevens is the oldest residence hall on campus, built in 1895, and is located on the Hillside of campus. Conveniently located to the center of campus, it is a short walk to most academic buildings, the CUB, and the music school. This classic women-only hall offers its students an environment steeped in tradition which helps them grow into thriving women. Due to the hall’s small community, the residents form close bonds with each other and many choose to live in Stevens all four years while attending WSU.

Key Events:
• The black cat story, told during Halloween season
• Holiday party
• Sunday afternoon tea which is open to all of campus
• Stevens Squire Week
• It is tradition for graduating students to gift a tea cup to the hall – rumor has it there is a cup from Helen Keller in one of the display cases.

Should I get renter's insurance when I live in University Housing?

Yes! While you may be covered under your parent’s homeowner’s insurance, claims against homeowner’s insurance can be expensive, especially compared to renter’s insurance. Personal property insurance is recommended by WSU. This insurance will cover your belongings if they are accidentally damaged, stolen, vandalized or suffer a loss from water, fire, smoke, etc. It’s very important to purchase coverage (starting at $65 for the year for $2,000 worth of coverage) so that in the event an emergency arises, you will have the funds to replace your items. If a loss occurs, WSU is not responsible. We strongly encourage all students to purchase this insurance as unfortunate situations can and do happen. Here are some common situations that can occur:

1. Water damage from sprinklers going off
2. Fire, smoke, explosion, windstorm
3. Theft
4. Accidental damage
5. Vandalism

To purchase this coverage, please visit www.studentinsuranceprograms.com/pp . You can also reach our broker that handles this plan (Haylor, Freyer, & Coon, Inc), at 866-535-0456 or student@haylor.com and they’d be happy to answer any questions that you have and help you enroll.

What can I use to hang posters and pictures on the walls in this hall?  What can I not use?

Please use blue painters tape for posters, and 3M Command strips to hang pictures.  If you use 3M Command strips, please do not remove the strips; our staff will remove them over the summer if the room needs to be painted.  Please do not use double-sided mounting products, permanent mounting products, blue mounting putty, tacks or push pins, masking tape, or duct tape.

Can I bring my own microwave?

No, because the electrical capacity of the hall cannot handle individual microwaves.  You can rent a Microfridge from us at check-in, first come, first serve.

Move In Information

General Move-In Information

Official WSU move-in begins on Wednesday, August 16. While residence hall contracts begin on Saturday, August 12, WSU highly encourages students to arrive for move-in on August 16 to begin their successful college experience with Week Of Welcome events beginning that night. 

This year, the WSU community and departments across campus collaborate to develop to best possible options to facilitate the thousands of students and cars that arrive on move-in day. Your arrival time, the hall you’re moving into, and the particular day you arrive, all play a factor in your experience. Those moving in will need to sign up and indicate their planned arrival time. Please complete the form located at https://movein.wsu.edu/signup 

Please plan to come with patience and know that there will probably be some wait times to get into your unloading zone. Hundreds of volunteers, Housing & Residence Life staff, and Parking & Transportation Services staff want your move-in to be smooth and low stress. They are easily identifiable and happy to help.

You can find more information about move-in at https://movein.wsu.edu/  Information will also be shared and live tweeted on move-in day, please follow us @reslifewsu and use #WSUWOW

Extra recycling containers are brought in specifically for move-in. Please pay attention to where you are disposing of garbage versus recycling.

For hanging items on your walls in Stevens Hall please use blue painters tape for posters, and 3M Command strips to hang pictures. If you use 3M Command strips, please do not remove the strips; our staff will remove them over the summer if the room needs to be painted.

Words of Wisdom from past students and parents

Rooms are smaller than you think. Spend some time looking at the photos and room dimensions and be realistic with what will fit. 

Review what you can’t bring – the list is specific for each hall.
