Apply to live on campus

Once you are admitted to Stockton University and have submitted your enrollment deposit, housing options will be presented to you based upon your status as a first-year student. You should closely review your options and complete your housing application as soon as possible which will improve your chances of living in the style of room and your requested roommate.

Through the housing application you can access the roommate finder tool and self-select the style of room you would like to live in. Requests can never be guaranteed, however Residential Life prioritizes roommate matches over the style of room based upon student feedback. Students who sign the contract agree to live on campus for the entire academic year. Please read the document carefully prior to signing it.
