Stever House

Stever House, is located on Morewood Avenue, opened in April 2003. It was named New House until May 2008 when the building was renamed in honor of H. Guyford Stever, the university's fifth president from 1965-1972.

The five-story, traditional first-year residence was the first building on campus to be designed "green". Design and construction practices aimed to significantly reduce or eliminate the negative impact of buildings on the environment and occupants. It received a Silver rating for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) from the U.S. Green Building Council on September 12, 2003.

Stever House has individually controlled, year-around heating and cooling options in all rooms with enhanced air exchange and ventilation systems. All public spaces and community baths have automatic lighting and flow controls. In addition to student rooms and community baths on each level, each floor has several gathering spaces, a study lounge, and trash/recycling and storage areas. The building's main floor includes large reading and study rooms, a recreation area, a fitness room, a kitchen and private dining room, vending and laundry.

The Facility Coordinator for Stever House is Tom Brooks.
