From Stevenson University

Stevenson is a small, private university located outside of Baltimore, MD. With an emphasis on career education, our students across 90+ majors, minors, and pre-professional tracks receive hands-on training and preparation, no matter their calling. We believe in the value of a Stevenson education, ensuring that students venture outside the classroom into the real world to build the skillset necessary for their career.

Our campus facilities include state-of-the-art nursing simulation labs, various dining locations, performance spaces, design studios, and our Owings Mills East Athletic Complex coming soon! SU's housing has been ranked #7 in the nation by Niche, with suite-style floor plans, free parking, an AC unit in each room, mini-fridge & microwave included, and single rooms available upon request for freshmen.
