Coming in 2018: Stockton in Atlantic City

One of the biggest New Jersey stories for 2018 is coming out of Atlantic City, but it isn’t about a casino.

Stockton University will open its residential campus in the fall, bringing beachfront living and learning to students at a brand new Atlantic City campus.

The site features housing on the Boardwalk for more than 500 students, an academic building that can serve as many as 2,000 students, and a parking garage topped by a new headquarters for South Jersey Gas.

The $220 million Atlantic City Gateway project is a public/private partnership developed by the Atlantic City Development Corporation, or ACDevco. It represents the first major non-casino investment in the city, and demonstrates a statewide commitment to diversifying the local and regional economy, and serving the needs New Jersey’s college-bound students.

The excitement has been building. In fall 2017 Stockton welcomed its largest freshman class ever, more than 1,500 students, a 32 percent increase. Total enrollment now exceeds 9,200 students.

To meet demand, Stockton will also complete new science and allied health buildings as part of the Academic Quad project at the main Galloway Township campus.  In January, Stockton will open an expanded site in Manahawkin, Ocean County, offering more opportunities for allied health and nursing students.
