The building – the tallest in Ocean County – is a joint venture between Ocean County College and Kean University.
The 74,000-square foot, five-story building sits on OCC’s upper campus. The state-of-the-art facility features a 210 seat lecture hall, classrooms, labs, conference rooms, seminar rooms, student lounge, snack kiosk and office space for faculty and staff, college officials said.
The Gateway building will be utilized as part of the ever-expanding partnership between and Kean University. Between Gateway and other facilities, officials will be able to offer both undergraduate and even masters degrees to students within Ocean County.
The partnership has been called "unique" by OCC officials.
