ATLANTIC CITY — Do you want to live in a beachfront apartment this summer while taking college courses? Stockton University may have space for you.
The college is opening up its Atlantic City dorms this summer to those taking summer courses or doing an internship in or around Atlantic City.
“We already have a 12-month housing option available for our students. We always offered summer housing here in Galloway, but now we have the extra benefit of being able to live on the beach,” said Stockton spokeswoman Diane D’Amico.
Stockton’s Atlantic City campus, which includes a residential building and an academic building along Albany Avenue, opened in August. The dorms have capacity for more than 500 students.
Stockton student Breanna Betts is one of many planning to spend her summer in an apartment with a beach view.
“I was on board from the beginning,” said Betts, who also lives in Atlantic City during the academic year. “I’m so excited for the summer. I can roll out of bed onto the beach. And I don’t have to worry about parking. It’s so simple to walk or hop a jitney.”
The housing is open to all students taking classes at Stockton this year, regardless of whether they are enrolled at another institution, according to the college. In addition, businesses in the area providing summer internships can work with Stockton to provide housing for their interns.
Available housing options range from private studios to six-person shared bedroom apartments. All units have kitchens, and the rates include free laundry and free parking in the adjacent garage.
Rates for Stockton students are $22 to $40 per day based on housing type. Rates for non-Stockton students are $32 to $40 per day. Units are also available to faculty and staff for $42 to $50 per day. A minimum four-day stay is required.
