Testing Center

The Testing Center on the Main Campus in Toms River is temporarily located in rooms 144 and 142 of the Russell Building, No. 7 while the Library building renovations are being completed. Once that construction is complete, we will move back to our original location on the ground floor of the Library Building No. 3, Room 014.
