Sweeney Lauds Expansion of Stockton University’s Atlantic City Campus
Trenton – Senate President Steve Sweeney today praised Stockton University’s expansion of its Atlantic City campus. The construction project will include a 140,000 square-foot building that will house 416 students in apartment-style living spaces.
“Three years ago, the State began funding this expansion knowing how important it would be for the university, the students, and the communities here in Atlantic County,” Senator Sweeney (D-Gloucester/Salem/Cumberland) said of the ground-breaking for Phase II of Stockton’s Atlantic City Campus.
“This project will continue the economic revitalization and increased access to higher education created through the opening of Stockton’s Atlantic City campus. Institutions like Stockton provide so much for our communities, and it is clear that the investments New Jersey has made here are already paying off,” the Senate President said.
The Stockton Atlantic City campus opened in fall 2018 with an academic building, a 533-bed residential complex and a parking garage. The ground-breaking for the site of the new residential building was initially scheduled to occur in March, but it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Construction of the building is anticipated to be completed by the fall of 2022.
The construction will be a public/private partnership with the Atlantic City Development Corporation.
