Live Stockton - The Freshmen Experience 

Research has shown that students who attend liberal arts institutions, LiveStocktonwho live on campus also have significantly higher G.P.A.'s than comparable students at institutions who live off campus (Turley & Wodtke, 2010).  Stockton University's freshmen housing offers a shared experience in traditional residence hall living.  As a residential student you have the campus at your fingertips when going to class, or eating at one of the many dining locations on campus.  Students will also have the opportunity to take advantage of academic resources, programs, and events that contribute to your success, which helps you make the most of your first year as an Osprey.  

Stockton University guarantees four years to those students who live on campus consecutive years (exceptions are made to those students who study abroad and participate with internships.)  To apply to live on campus please log into the GoStockton Portal. Accepted students will find instructions in their admissions application.
