This office serves as a liaison between the event planner and the offices that provide support services for events.

The campus also offers a variety of athletic and recreational facilities as well as on-campus overnight accommodations during the summer months.

The office also manages building operations for the Campus Center including a lost and found depository, student event ticketing service, the Game Room and a variety of Campus Center sponsored programs.

Wellness Center 
The goal of the Wellness Center at Stockton is to assist students, faculty, and staff in reaching an optimal level of health and wellness and to respect the connection between physical, emotional and mental health and the process of changing behaviors that contribute to poor health choices. The following offices comprise the Wellness Center:


Transitions and Retention

Collaborate with  Enrollment Management and Academic Affairs to support students’ transition to the university, graduation and post-graduate success, involving the following divisional offices:

Career Center
The Career Center guides and assists students and alumni through the process of developing and implementing comprehensive career and educational plans that will prepare them for success. The center offers a variety of services including career counseling, graduate school advising, resume critiques, interview preparation and assistance with internship and job searching. In addition, the Career Center helps students and graduates connect with employers by offering employer and networking opportunities including career fairs, on-campus interviewing and alumni career panels.

Educational Opportunity and Success Programs  
- EOF is designed to meet the educational and financial needs of students whose potential for college may not be reflected in their academic grades and whose economic background makes it extremely difficult for them to pursue a college education without financial aid. Information on the Program and eligibility requirements are available on the EOF Web page.
- The CARE Program (Coordinated Actions to Retain and Educate) is a program designed to assist students with their overall experience here at Stockton University. The Program aims to help students navigate and maximize the benefits of various academic and student life resources available at Stockton and includes individualized mentoring by Stockton faculty and staff and trained peer mentors.

 Military and Veteran Services
The Office of Military and Veteran Services was created for the purpose of outreach to student veterans, active service members and reservists. A primary mission of the veteran’s program is to guide Stockton veterans and active service members to a variety of services that may benefit them and help them to connect with one another. With the anticipated return of our troops from overseas, Stockton will further the development of these programs and services.

New Student and Family Programs 
The Office of New Student and Family Programs (NSFP) strives to provide excellent programing in the areas of orientation, transition and retention to serve all new undergraduate students at Stockton University.  NSFP is committed to providing an environment for inclusion while welcoming and acclimating new students to our institution in collaboration with Academic Affairs and other campus partners. NSFP also provides programming for parents and family members to ensure student success from enrollment through commencement.
