NJIT’s number of residential student housing capacity will then top 2,200 beds, an increase of some 35 percent. To accommodate student demand, NJIT’s housing has been filled to capacity using housing triples in double rooms and leasing off-campus space. These new residences and amenities are timely additions as the university’s enrollment is expected to exceed 10,000 students by fall of 2013.
Warren Street Village will be a unique, 3-acre mixed-use residential housing complex. When completed in fall of 2013, the 214,000-square-foot complex, bounded by Colden Street to the east, Warren Street to the north and Raymond Boulevard to the southwest, will add 600 beds to NJIT’s existing inventory of residential housing. In addition, the $80-million project will feature dining services, a convenience store and fitness center for the University community.
