Edwin A. Stevens Hall
Named in honor of the university’s founder, the Edwin A. Stevens Hall (EAS) serves as the home of the Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering & Science (SES), the largest school at Stevens comprising eight academic departments that span engineering and science. In addition to administrative offices and classrooms, EAS also houses DeBaun Auditorium, the site of theatrical, musical and dance performances, as well as special events and university lectures.
EAS has a rich historical and architectural pedigree. Dating back to when the university first opened its doors in 1870 as the first school of mechanical engineering in the nation, EAS has been the cornerstone building on the Stevens campus. Built in the high Victorian Gothic style, the 80,000-square-foot, five-story masonry building was designed by Civil War architect Richard Upjohn, famous for the design of Trinity Church in New York City.
