Founded 1969, Galloway
Stockton University entered a new era in fall 2018 with the opening of a brand new residential campus in Atlantic City and the addition of new Unified Sciences and Health centers on the main campus in the Pinelands National Reserve.
The two diverse locations allow the university to expand its interdisciplinary approach to undergraduate and graduate education in business, hospitality and tourism studies, environmental science, arts and sciences, the health sciences and continuing studies.
The new $178.3 million Atlantic City site offers beachfront living and learning with housing for 533 students overlooking the beach and Boardwalk, a parking garage and a 14-classroom Academic Center.
Stockton’s main campus in Galloway sits on 1,600 wooded acres. A $33.2 million expansion of Stockton’s world-class science facilities along with a $15.2 million Health Sciences Center were dedicated in May 2018. The new Academic Quad transformed the main entrance to the university, providing a central outdoor location for students to study and meet between classes.
Stockton also has instructional sites in Manahawkin, Hammonton, and Woodbine. The almost 8,000-square-foot expansion of the Manahawkin instructional site in 2018 serves nursing students with a Foundations of Nursing lab featuring simulated patients and seven physical assessment examining rooms.
Stockton’s Kramer Hall Instructional Site in Hammonton hosts the university’s Master of Arts in Counseling and Master of Science in Data Science and Strategic Analytics programs.
