Osprey Recovery Community

Stockton University is committed to a peer-driven recovery community.  Members of this community benefit from ongoing counseling services, prevention initiatives, social support, and quality programming to support our students in their journey. The community of students support, advocate, and enjoy all the opportunities of a collegiate career.

Recovery Housing

Recovery Housing is home to a voluntary community of students who wish to live with others committed to recovery and provide support to each other so that all can excel academically, sustain recovery, and build lifelong friendships. 

Stockton University is proud to offer on-campus housing dedicated to students in recovery from alcohol and/or drug dependence. Recovery House is an on-campus housing option that offers students the opportunity to have a fulfilling residential college experience living within a supportive community with other students in recovery. Residents receive recovery support from a licensed addiction counselor, as well as academic and career support. There are no signs identifying the Housing Unit in order to protect the anonymity and privacy of students who live there. 

Our goal is to champion lives of students in recovery, helping students achieve success and thrive in a living community of accountability and support. Recovery Housing is a place to make meaningful connections in a healthy, sober, social scene with the assistance of peer support and highly trained and licensed addiction counselors.
