TOMS RIVER – A brand new, 16,000-square-foot Student Enrollment Building is set to open on June 24 at Ocean County College.
The new building will house Enrollment Services, Student Advising, Registration and Records, and Financial Aid, being the ultimate one-stop-shop for students in need of services.
Students can expect new self-service technology, easy access to the Larson Student Center, staff offices, private interview rooms, and outdoor and overflow space with the newly renovated Conference Center.
The concept of the new building is to make it easier for both new students to learn about OCC, and active students by having these departments centralized to one place.
“While our beautiful campus closed during the pandemic in accordance with state health and safety mandates, construction continued on the new Student Enrollment Building at Ocean County College,” OCC President Dr. Jon H. Larson said. “In the very near future, its doors will open wide, admitting new and returning students. Inside, they will find a wide array of services to help them on their educational path here and beyond. It will be our pleasure to greet and serve them!”
The energy-efficient and ADA compliant building was designed by Design Resources Group Architects, AIA, Inc., and built by Catel, Inc. contractors.
