In response to the growing number of COVID-19 cases, NJCU will suspend all in-person instruction for the remainder of the spring semester. All classes will be taught online. All events scheduled through the end of April are also canceled or postponed.
The university experience goes way beyond the classroom. Here are a few reasons to consider living on campus:
You’re at the heart of everything. You’re never more than a few minutes away from classes. Activities. Dining. Athletic and fitness facilities. Common areas. And everything else NJCU has to offer.
It’s so much easier to schedule the classes you want without having to worry about transit schedules and commuting hours. Use newfound time for activities. Extra study. Maybe even a few extra winks of sleep!
Sense of Community
Being a resident provides added opportunity to be involved in NJCU’s uniquely diverse social and educational community. You’ll build lifetime friendships, and you’ll grow both personally and socially.
Statistics show that resident students get better grades, are almost twice as likely to make the Dean’s List and are more likely to graduate on time. And on-time graduation means less college debt!
When you add up the cost of off-campus housing (rent, utilities, food, commuting), you might be surprised that an NJCU residence and meal plan might be the way to go. Housing grants are available for qualified students.
24-Hour Security and More
All residence halls offer 24-hour security, laundry rooms, kitchen facilities, study lounges, computer labs and a variety of educational, community service, and recreational programs.
