Stockton University’s Atlantic City campus has received city council approval designating it as a university district.
The designation, which supports Stockton’s role as a state-recognized anchor institution in the city, is intended to promote investment and development in academic and related uses within the boundaries of the district.
The district extends from Sovereign Avenue to Dover Avenue, and from the Boardwalk to the Inside Thoroughfare. It crosses over the Albany Avenue Bridge to include the area between Albany Avenue and Trenton Avenue to West End Avenue, and almost 50 acres within Bader Field. The area connects the Tourism District and Bader Field District.
Stockton is in the process of developing signage that will help identify the district and will also participate in promoting it for private investment.
