NJIT’s residential student housing capacity now tops 2,200 beds, an increase of some 35 percent. The new complex accommodates pent-up student demand, which until now has filled NJIT’s housing to capacity using triples in double rooms and leasing off-campus space. Village residents are a combination of Albert Dorman Honors College students in the main building coupled with four new duplex homes for members of fraternities and sororities. The new residence and amenities are timely additions as the university’s enrollment reaches 10,000 students.
NJIT President Joel S. Bloom, the founder and former dean of NJIT’s 12-year-old Dorman Honors College, has been a fervent “Village” advocate to enable an expanded learning community for the 685 Honors College students, one of NJIT’s most vibrant and successful student learning communities. The new residential Honors College will include 360 beds, computer labs, project studios, a library, student lounges, government offices and more.
The new Greek homes will provide living, dining and chapter space on the first floor, and sleeping quarters on the upper two floors.
