University District

The development of Stockton’s campus at the end of Route 40 has been one of the most transformative decisions in Atlantic City’s recent history. The A.C. campus, which opened in Fall 2018, demonstrates the University’s and City’s commitment to diversify the local economy and welcome thousands of new residents and students to the area.

An extension of the City’s orientation to support higher education was the 2018 enactment of a University District Overlay Zoning District, which is a Special Purpose District supporting a variety of uses, including higher education, housing, art galleries, entertainment, and research laboratories. The University District extends from Chelsea Heights to the beachfront, and includes a significant portion of the Bader Field site.
