As enrollment has increased over the years at Stockton University, it's become more and more difficult to find enough housing for students. Press of Atlantic City reported that the number of students has increased from 7,240 to 7,808 in the past five years with 3,043 students currently living in student housing and 2,683 living on the main campus. While searching for options in Atlantic City, the New Jersey university has had to lease spaces in motels for two years now on the White Horse Pike to find rooms for students. Currently, 223 students live in Seaview Resort and Golf Club, 123 students live in Clarion Inn on Route 30, and 14 students are housed at the Comfort Inn and Suites in Galloway. Showboat was expected to provide up to 400 rooms for students, but land use killed the deal, according to Press of Atlantic City. While Stockton guarantees four years of housing, only freshman are guaranteed to live on the main campus of the school.
