POMONA, NJ-Work has begun on a new 153,000-sf campus center at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey here. Site preparation has commenced, and construction will begin in November of this year.

When completed, the campus center, which is being designed by KSS Architects of Princeton and VMDO Architects of Charlottesville, VA will boast an event venue, student dining facility, retail and offices. “We were particularly intrigued by this project because this changes the characteristic of Stockton as an institution,” Andrew Tucker, the project manager, tells GlobeSt.com. “For the most part, students would leave campus over the weekend. Stockton’s desire was to really make the campus a place where students want to live and socialize and be there on the weekends.”

Tucker continues that “the project is a campus center that is proposed to be a cultural center and a social center for students, faculty and the community at large. It will have a recital hall-quality theater, an event room that could support a variety of activities from dance to performances to banquets to career days. It includes offices for admissions, the bursar and the registrar, a coffee house, game rooms and a bookstore. It’s meant to be a place where people can live and work and become a center for the institution.”
