Stephenson Complex

Students hanging out and playing pool in Stephenson Recreation Area

Stephenson Complex consists of three prominent high-rise towers known as Stephenson North, South and East. This timeless, strong and rustic community welcomes residents of all majors but has a first-year focus on science, mathematics and engineering.

The outgoing and expressive atmosphere within Stephenson encourages students to become well acquainted and gain friendships that will last throughout their four years at WSU. With this energetic dynamic, the hall culture is similar to that of a family.  There is a friendly rivalry between the North, South and East halls while maintaining tremendous respect and admiration for one another within Stephenson.

Key Events:
• Hall government holds special events for mom’s and dad’s weekend

  • Move In Information

    General Move-In Information

    Official WSU move-in begins on Wednesday, August 15. While residence hall contracts begin on Saturday, August 11, WSU highly encourages students to arrive for move-in on August 15 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. Please keep in mind that pets are not allowed in the residence halls when moving in.

    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

    Specific Instructions for Stephenson Complex

    Drive to Stephenson Complex-from Stadium Way you will turn onto Nevada Street. Look for the parking staff and temporary parking signage directing you to your assigned hall. Stephenson East and South residents will be directed to active unloading zones in the gray parking lot while Stephenson North residents will be directed to active unloading zones in the green parking lot.

    To check-in, you will need to go to the main entrance located in the center of the complex. Stephenson South and Stephenson East will check in at the Conference Room. Stephenson North check in at the piano lounge. There will be signage and volunteers who can direct you. Check in with your Cougar Card or photo ID. If you need a moving cart look for move-in volunteers.

    As parking is at a premium, once your car is unloaded, it must be relocated to a parking lot. Parking staff will be on site to assist you with directions on best parking lot options.

    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 Stephenson Complex 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. Do not use double-sided mounting products, permanent mounting products, blue mounting putty, tacks or push pins, masking tape, or duct tape. Stephenson has several walls with wall carpeting; please use tacks and pins on these walls, never use 3M Command strips.

    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.
