The Merwick Stanworth complex is a new community of 325 unfurnished townhouses and apartments. Fifty-six of the units are designated affordable housing.

Phase one, which opened in July 2014, is located on the site of the former Merwick Rehabilitation Center and includes 127 units in two-story townhouses, two-story multi-family stacked apartments, and three-story apartment buildings. 

Phase two of the project, which opened in the summer of 2016, is built on the former Stanworth complex site and includes 198 two-story townhouses and two-story multi-family stacked apartments.

American Campus Communities owns and operates Merwick Stanworth, and Princeton Community Housing Corporation will lease the affordable housing units. Merwick Stanworth is pet-friendly depending upon the location of the unit.

Applications are now being accepted for housing at Merwick Stanworth through My Housing for Faculty & Staff.
