As per New Jersey regulations, some housing will be for isolation or quarantine housing.  Chris Gaupp will be not be occupied for the Fall 2020 semester and will be the isolation/quarantine housing.  Additionally, as per the State of New Jersey we will be reducing our occupancy of housing.  The areas that will be most impacted are Housing 1 (5-person apartments), Housing 2 (triples), Housing 3 (reduced rate doubles), and a small number of apartments in Housing 4 and and Atlantic City.

  • Housing 3, - reduced rate doubles are being reduced to singles
  • Housing 4 - most of Housing 4 will remain two students in each bedroom.  A small number of housing four apartments will have 2 people per apartment

Lounges may also be closed or reconfigured based upon guidance from the State of New Jersey.  Information will be placed in the lounges instructing the students whether they are opened or closed.  

Our team is currently working to determine what exact days and times check-in will occur.  Check-in will be more days that it traditionally has been in the past and the hours of check-in will be extended to promote social distancing and allow everyone to have a safe experience.  Students will only be permitted to bring two guests with them for check-in, and to promote social distancing, we will ask that the students guests remain outside of the check-in building.  Students will receive move-in instructions on August 3, 2020 by 5:00 PM with all the detailed information they may need.  

Freshmen, transfer, and renewal students will have the opportunity to chose a time slot to move in.  Students should check their email for specific instructions regarding move-in.

We take the safety of our students and the residential community very seriously and are committed to providing a safe environment for our residential students.  No guests will be permitted for the Fall 2020 semester.  A guest is defined as anyone who does not live in that room or apartment.  New Jersey COVID-19 guidance has mandated that students are discouraged from visiting one another on campus to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  

Students who host parties, or other activities with students who live outside of their room or apartment will be held accountable through the campus code of conduct, and may lose their housing.

Students who cancel for the Fall 2020 semester may not be able to be placed in the same location for the Spring 2021 semester.  If a student cancels in the Fall 2020 semester, their housing assignment will be filled by another student.  Residential Life will work individually with students regarding any special questions they may have.  Students may call 609-652-4332 or email housing@stockton.edu.

No, if a student cancels, it will not have an impact on the residents in that room or apartment.  Students will receive a new roommate, if a vacancy exists.
