Blue and gold were everywhere as The College of New Jersey’s (TCNJ) Campus Town celebrated the opening of the Barnes & Noble at The College of New Jersey bookstore, the first of many retail stores to open at the mixed-use complex in Ewing Township, N.J.

Campus Town will provide housing for nearly 450 TCNJ students as well as a variety of retail stores and restaurants for the College and the local Ewing Township community. “Campus Town enhances the living-learning environment at TCNJ, provides much needed student housing, and offers amenities to our neighbors in Ewing,” said TCNJ President R. Barbara Gitenstein. “Thanks to our public-private partnership with The PRC Group, it was built without any tuition or public dollars.”

The 14,000-square-foot bookstore will serve TCNJ students and faculty, as well as the local community and will offer textbooks, general reading books, a children’s section, dorm and tech supplies and an array TCNJ branded apparel and merchandise. The store also includes a Barnes & Noble Café, serving Starbucks beverages, and looks out onto the Campus Town complex. “It’s a nice bridge between the community and the school,” said TCNJ senior Danielle Stepien, 21. “It’s a nice addition to what’s probably going to be a great Campus Town.”
