Stockton University’s Main Campus Walkway was significantly enhanced through the design and inclusion of the following unifying site elements: shade trees and plantings, decorative pavement, ornamental lighting, signage and site furniture. These features not only contribute to the beauty of the promenade, but create a sense of home for the campus. The enhancements to the walkway function as a fundamental connection between the various architectural styles of the campus buildings. The Main Campus Walkway is a linear pedestrian corridor (a strong way-finding element) that links all buildings, existing and proposed courtyards, alcoves, seating areas, and green areas throughout the core campus.

The walkway was designed to become a safe pedestrian street with a strong landscape element. Not only is the generous Campus Walkway amply lit at night, but it also offers a distant line of sight for its entire length. Its design allows for accessibility and functionality for students, staff, visitors, and community. In order to limit maintenance and ensure that the University’s investment in the “living landscape” is preserved, bioretention rain gardens and infiltration swales have been carefully landscaped and integrated into the site.
