Housing to close early following state-wide COVID-10 spikes

On November 17, President Harvey Kesselman and Vice President for Student Affairs Christopher C. Catching sent campus-wide emails regarding the university’s operations following the Thanksgiving holiday.

The plan for students who currently live on-campus without extenuating circumstances will move off-campus for the remainder of the Fall 2020 semester no later than Wednesday, November 25th at 5 p.m.

Students moving off campus who expect to return for the Spring 2021 semester with classes tentatively set to start January 19 do not have to completely remove all belongings from the residence hall.

The messages also detail Stockton’s shift to completely online learning for the rest of this semester due to recent spikes of COVID-19. Beginning Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 11 all courses that were in-person or hybrid will be fully online with the exception for some approved laboratory, clinical, studio, or internship classes.

All of the details and exceptions to Stockton University’s post-Thanksgiving transition plan are on the main website in addition to a live list of the plan according to Gov. Phil Murphy’s NJ state mandates (which are subject to change at any given time.)

For Stockton students: finals week will be fully remote from Monday, December 14 through Friday, December 18

Stockton’s post-Thanksgiving plan is one of many new mandates within the state of New Jersey. Governor Phil Murphy, along with new restrictions on indoor and outdoor gatherings, placed a self-quarantine request after traveling from almost all states in the U.S.

President Kesselman encourages students to look back on what we have already accomplished within the past two and a half months, and urges the community to follow Stockton’s “Mask Up, Back Up, and Wash Up” campaign in order to keep the campus safe moving forward.
