New Jersey City University serves the communities where it is based as well as any university in the country. This week, that community got a little larger.
The school officially opened its new location, NJCU @ Fort Monmouth, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier this week at the historic former Army base.
As the educational partner in the revitalization of Fort Monmouth, NJCU’s new location will expand bachelor’s and master’s degree offerings along the Jersey Shore, giving the university the only four-year public higher education program in the area.
The new location in Squier Hall — formerly the home of the Signal Corps — is renovated from its origins as a 1935-era administrative building and is now a state-of-the-art facility featuring 15 classrooms, a nursing education center, a cybersecurity computer lab and offices for faculty and staff in a 72,000-square-foot building located on more than 22 acres. Additionally, the facility includes a flexible event space that will host organizations and community events as a partner to the Monmouth County community.
