Under Construction at Atlantic Cape
- Beginning Wednesday, March 6, pedestrian traffic will be re-routed at the Mays Landing Campus as construction fence is installed at the site of the future STEM building. The fencing will define the area of construction and will eliminate the pathway between D-building and F-building from Parking Lot 2 to the Quad. Pedestrians must access the Quad by walking through D-building or along the pathway between D-building and M-building.
- Pedestrian traffic between Parking Lot 1 and A-building remains unaffected at this time.
- Effective Tuesday, March 5, handicapped accessible parking spots in the small parking lot in front of D-building will be relocated to Parking Lot 2.

Several major projects are in the works at Atlantic Cape Community College and its campuses in Mays Landing and Atlantic City. Some construction work will impact access to the campuses and various buildings and parking lots. Information will be updated as projects progress.
Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) Building
Mays Landing Campus
Estimated Project Timeline: Spring 2013-Fall 2014
This construction marks the first new college building at the Mays Landing Campus in more than two decades. The 32,475-square-foot, two-story facility will feature science labs, computer labs, office space and a partially vegetated roof with walkways. The building will also be home to the Air Traffic Control and Aviation Studies degree programs and the Technology Studies Institute.
Following input from students, faculty, staff and external stakeholders through focus group sessions, and guidance from the Atlantic Cape STEM Core Team, architects prepared a design that incorporates a palette of materials and colors that complement the colors, textures and scale of current campus buildings, while maintaining the natural quality of the campus landscape. Exterior building materials will feature brick cavity wall construction on the first floor, insulated metal panel walls on the second floor and penthouse, and glass window walls in the two-story atrium/lobby.
It is a $16 million project designed by Stantec and will receive LEED Silver certification for its “green” design.
The building will be located on the south side of the main campus quadrangle between the library, D-building, and the Central Plant, F-building.
Caesars Entertainment Wing for Hospitality and Gaming Studies
Worthington Atlantic City Campus
Estimated Project Timeline: Fall 2012-Spring 2014
Because the job growth in the Atlantic City hospitality industry is outpacing the growth of the local skilled workforce, especially in the vocation of culinary arts, Atlantic Cape intends to build new continuing education technical training facilities to fulfill these needs as an addition to the existing Atlantic City Campus. Customized training services for the Atlantic City regional hospitality industry, especially related to ESL, supervisory skills, will also be provided.
This new 20,000-square-foot addition will train workers for the hospitality and culinary arts industries within the region. It will include two teaching kitchens, classrooms, offices and a greenhouse.
This $10 million project is jointly funded by Atlantic County and the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority through a donation by Caesars Entertainment. CRDA awarded the college a $5 million grant to construct the center and Atlantic County matched that sum as part of its pledge to support capital improvements at Atlantic Cape.
