Who We Are.

Built by Students for Students

Our Core Mission

Our mission is to make housing as convenient as it should be.

Why We Started. Hudson Dorms was started by Stevens’ graduates, who experienced living in all of the housing options available to them in their college years. When they decided to move off-campus, they recognized that the housing options did not meet their needs. As a result, they took the best aspect of each housing option they lived in and created a new opportunity for students looking to move off-campus. The goal is to make living off campus as positive of an experience as possible.

about us filler doodle 2_edited.png

Mike graduated from Stevens with a Bachelor’s in Engineering Management and a Master’s in Systems Engineering. At Hudson Dorms, he handles finance, logistics, internal forecasting, and strategy. Mike spends time with existing students to find ways to improve service, optimize maintenance, and ensure each student has an incredible experience. He also loves to give tips to students any chance he can get to help them with their academic schedules, resumes, job placement, or their starting line-up for fantasy football! In addition, Mike has experience in the leasing industry as a data scientist.
Mike earned the name “Mr. Spreadsheet” for his astounding excel knowledge and forecasting capabilities. Mike built Hudson Dorms’ internal software for inventory management and financials. At Stevens, Mike was the president of the Stevens Ultimate Frisbee team and competed in mid to long-distance events for the Varsity Track team. Mike was a professional fantasy football consultant in 2018 and brought all his clients to the playoffs. When not at his desk, Mike can be seen skateboarding throughout Hoboken!

Dennis graduated from Stevens with a Bachelor's in Business and Technology. He took an interest in fixing things from a very early age, never passing up the opportunity to help with a repair. This came in handy in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy when he spent his time off from high school assisting with post-flood renovations on homes all over his Long Island hometown. He used this disaster as an opportunity to learn considerable skills in general carpentry, plumbing, electrical work and finish carpentry.

When he isn't fixing things for others, Dennis enjoys working on his own projects (usually revolving around woodworking and boating), as well as fishing and cooking.

Ryan studied Business Administration and management at the State University of New York at Geneseo. While living off campus at Geneseo, he understood the struggle of dealing with spotty housing and found HD’s mission. During the summer of 2022, he interned at Hudson Dorms while living in one of their current apartments. He had a blast living in the Patrician and would recommend it to all. He later joined the team full-time in the winter. At HD, Ryan spends a lot of his time in the maintenance and operations department ensuring the safety and comfort of our students. Outside of Hoboken, you can find Ryan on a plethora of different mountains. He enjoys his time outdoors immersing himself in such activities, his favorite being skiing.
