The LEED Gold-certified Gateway Academic Center is the first major project completed as part of a new campus master plan for Stevens Institute of Technology. Situated at 6th and Hudson streets, the center serves as the western campus entrance on one of the most beautiful and architecturally significant streets in Hoboken and offers dramatic views of the Manhattan skyline. The Gateway Academic Center helps position Stevens as a premier, student-centric technology research university.
The building was conceived as an informal studio that blends the university’s focus on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and cybersecurity; data science and information systems; complex systems and networks; financial systems and technologies; biomedical engineering, healthcare, and life sciences; and resilience and sustainability. The facility houses classrooms, laboratories, student displays, a café, and formal and informal public collaboration and meeting spaces.
The design brings these areas together and offers places for chance encounters. The goal is to create positive development in these disciplines. Stevens is focused on outcomes and impact, and the center provides the flexible, active learning spaces the Stevens community needs.
