Stevens Building

Beginning in the fall of 2019, UMA is excited to offer affordable housing to full-time students attending the Augusta campus. Located in Hallowell, just over the Augusta city line, the historic Stevens Commons is a renovated and preserved mixed-use campus, set high on a hill facing the Kennebec River.

Thirty-plus beds will be available in furnished rooms, with additional amenities on site for residential students such as a lounge, laundry, cafe (opening January 2020), and a fitness center. This modern and affordable housing is located within a short 10-minute drive of UMA’s Augusta campus, and within walking distance of local retailers and restaurants.
