Stockton University Atlantic City is poised to begin construction on a 416-bed residence hall in Atlantic City, N.J.
The Press of Atlantic City reports that the 135,000-square-foot facility will be built across from O'Donnell Memorial Park and near the Atlantic City campus.
The groundbreaking was initially scheduled for March, but was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The student housing will feature apartment-style living as well as a lounge, meeting room and laundry facilities. Residents will have access to parking in an existing parking garage.
The anticipated completion date is fall 2023.
The construction will be a public/private partnership with the Atlantic City Development Corporation, which developed the first phase of the Gateway Initiative that includes the Stockton Atlantic City campus.
The Stockton Atlantic City campus opened in fall 2018 with an academic building, a 533-bed residential complex and a parking garage.
