To visit or apply to
Stockton University and Stockton AC,

Absolutely! In fact, Stockton hopes that the Atlantic City campus will be the center of its summer programming. Summer scheduling will begin in 2019, so please check the University’s website closer to that date.

Stockton already offers both credit and non-credit bearing courses in Atlantic City, at the Noyes Art Garage, Carnegie Center, and Dante Hall Theater. The Office of Continuing Studies is planning to expand these offerings, and we encourage you to check their website.

Courses for credit through Stockton’s Dual Credit High School Program are already offered to Atlantic City High School (ACHS) students.  The School of Education offers the General Studies course “Pathways to Learning” at ACHS, which focuses on learning as it occurs in museums, the workplace, home, outdoors, as well as formal learning settings. Theories of learning from fields of sociology, psychology, and experimental learning are introduced through a series of different field experiences outside of the classroom setting.  

Several of Stockton’s majors already offer internships in Atlantic City, including Criminal Justice, Social Work, Education, Hospitality, Business, Physical Therapy, Health Sciences, Political Science, and Marine Science. As our presence in Atlantic City expands, these opportunities will also grow.

The Stockton Center for Community Engagement and the Office of Service-Learning have over 25 community partners in Atlantic City and dozens more in Atlantic County for students to access community engagement opportunities. Visit the Engagement page to see the many opportunities.

The Atlantic City Academic Center is equipped with more than 20 faculty offices. All faculty and staff are able to schedule space for course preparation and office hours. Contact to reserve available meeting room space. 

The academic building will not have a full library. However, students will find a variety of spaces and meeting rooms for study and collaboration. In addition, many of the resources found in Stockton’s Richard J. Bjork Library, including our Digital and EBook Central Collections, and other databases, will be accessible via computers in our labs. The Atlantic City Free Public Library also has a branch located within an 8-minute walk from the AC Campus. Located at 4115 Ventnor Ave., the Richmond Avenue Branch is adjacent to the Richmond Avenue Public School.  Additionally, the Library’s main branch is only 1.9 miles away from the campus (1 N. Tennessee Avenue) and only a short walk or ride by city bus or the Jitney shuttles.

Steps. With stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, you can leave your beachfront apartment, located on the boardwalk, and have sand between your toes in a short walk. Stockton AC is the closest to the beach of any New Jersey college or university.

Yes, summer housing will be available in Atlantic City to all Stockton students, faculty, staff and affiliates. Visit the AC Housing web page, or contact with specific summer housing related questions. 

Renewal students have the opportunity to self-select from available beds. A renewal student may choose Atlantic City as a choice. Transfer students may be assigned to that location even though it may not be their first choice depending upon the date of their application and the availability of housing. 
Residential Life is expanding the residential curriculum which will support enhanced programming so that the residential students in Atlantic City will have the opportunity to take advantage of the events and culture that Atlantic City has to offer. Traditional programming such as movie night and others will be offered. Stockton also has a vibrant campus life community, which includes hundreds of clubs and organizations for students to get involved. Meetings and events for these student groups will be offered in Atlantic City.
Atlantic City offers a rich city culture that will be significantly different from the Galloway campus experience.  Proximity to cultural centers, local schools, and Atlantic City entertainment will offer students more opportunities for service, involvement, and engagement outside of the traditional residence hall experience. 
Weekend activities will include student-life programming, and opportunities for students to interact with members of the community.  
Laundry facilities will be similar to facilities on the Galloway Campus. There will be laundry rooms on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors, free for residents, and viewable on the web. 
Residential students will have access to cable TV from their apartments in Atlantic City.  Additionally, residential students will also have the ability to stream live TV from Xfinity.  More information about this option can be found here.  

In addition to the food/dining options offered on campus, AtlantiCare opened its first Urgent Care Center in Atlantic City at the site of the new Stockton University Atlantic City campus.

New to Atlantic City, AtlantiCare Urgent Care will operate seven days a week, with hours Monday through Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and weekends from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

AtlantiCare Physician Group Primary Care Plus and Occupational Health offices also relocated to the new site.

Stockton students receive free clinic services through the Wellness Center on Stockton’s Galloway Campus, which is operated in partnership with AtlantiCare. Students can also access the new Urgent Care Center using private insurance.

AtlantiCare shares a common entrance to the building with South Jersey Gas and will also have direct street access.

AtlantiCare Urgent Care serves patients for diagnosis and treatment of minor illnesses and injuries. The most common injuries and illnesses the team has diagnosed and/or treated include sprains, strains and contusions. Staff includes board-certified physicians and advanced practice nurses, Registered Nurses, medical assistants, X-ray technologists and customer service associates.

Within the academic building, there will be three computer labs with printers. Within the residential building, there will be one computer lab with printers. Public access workstations with printing capabilities are located in common gallery spaces.
Wi-Fi connections are available within the Academic Center and Residential Complex for Stockton students, faculty, staff and guests of the University. 

The services and convenience of the Osprey Cash will be available for use in the retail/dining establishments on the Atlantic City campus as well as participating local businesses.

If your business is interested in participating in the Osprey Cash program, email or call 609-626-3613 for registration details. 

Like our main campus and other locations, the Atlantic City campus will be open to the public, with the exception of our residential buildings, which are secure facilities, accessible only to Stockton students residing in the building, registered guests, and staff with proper Stockton IDs. Special activities and events will be open to the public, as will the café/dining area in the academic building.

O'Donnell Memorial Park is one of the most beautiful and well-kept public spaces in southern New Jersey and will serve as a centerpiece for activities for our students and the community. 

As a New Jersey, nonprofit entity, the University is not required to pay real estate taxes on its property.  However, to demonstrate its support of Atlantic City, Stockton and the developer of the Atlantic City Gateway project, AC DEVCO, have reached an agreement to a Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) in the amount of $1.4 million a year, through 2021 to the City of Atlantic City. Appropriate sales tax will also be paid to the State for sales on food, merchandise and/or services located in our retail spaces in the residential building, parking garage, and academic building.

Although we are unable to set aside jobs for residents of Atlantic City, we will develop a plan to make Atlantic City residents aware of job openings, not only here in Atlantic City, but also our other campus and instructional sites. Stockton jobs listing can be found here.

Although it is too soon to release plans for future facilities in Atlantic City, Stockton does anticipate the opportunity for future growth in our academic programming and residential living.

Based on current crime statistics for the city, the Chelsea neighborhood where Stockton’s campus is located is one of the safest neighborhoods and sections within the city.  Moreover, the Atlantic City Police have advised us that crime in the city is typically concentrated is certain pockets of the city, which are not located near the campus. 

The residential building and other areas within the campus will be accessible only via swipe card.  Security will be located on the premises 24/7.  Stockton’s Police Department and Atlantic City Police Department are working together to develop best practices and other standard operating procedures in the event of emergencies, situations, etc.

We are committed to providing a safe environment to live and learn in Atlantic City. Stockton has an approved all-hazards Emergency Operations Plan which covers emergency notifications, evacuation, reception and sheltering.  Stockton also has a full-time Emergency Management Coordinator (EMC) to monitor all weather events. The EMC works closely with the Atlantic City and Atlantic County Offices of Emergency Management to coordinate the needs of students, faculty, staff and visitors.

Students taking classes in Atlantic City will have access to all of Stockton’s current 18 intercollegiate sports offered on the Galloway campus.  Of special note, however, will be our women’s intercollegiate crew program and our men’s varsity club crew program, both of which operate out of the boat house in Atlantic City located right near our Atlantic City campus.

We are currently exploring facility options in and around Atlantic City to offer intramural and/or recreational type activities, some similar to the Galloway campus and possibly some unique to Atlantic City and the beach location.

The residential building in Atlantic City will have a 1,500 square foot exercise facility available to any student housed in the building.
