UMA Housing at Stevens Commons

UMA Students at Stevens Hall

UMA offers affordable housing to full-time undergraduate 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.

Seventy-five+ beds will be available in furnished suites, with additional amenities on-site for residential students such as a mail service, lounge, laundry, cafe, 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.

The newly renovated student suites feature open layouts with sun-filled rooms, single and double bedrooms, and kitchen, dining, and bath spaces. One-, two-, and three-bedroom suites are available.

  • be a matriculated (enrolled) undergraduate student in a UMA academic degree program.
  • be enrolled as a full-time student (defined as taking a minimum of 12 academic credits per semester in both the fall and spring semesters, and a minimum of 3 academic credits in each summer term of residence) in any academic program and making satisfactory progress toward a degree. Students carrying less than 12 credits per semester or less than 3 credits during a summer term may appeal to live in UMA Stevens Commons Housing.

  • ensure there are no academic, financial or heath requirement holds on their accounts. In the case of a financial hold, students must work with Student Financial Services to complete payment or make an appropriate payment plan.
