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.
  • maintain a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0. Students who fall below the 2.0 cumulative GPA may appeal to live in UMA Housing at Stevens Commons. This appeal must be in writing and needs to contain a plan for future academic success.
  • 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.
