Living in Camden

The City of Camden has a vibrant housing sector with both new, homes, as well as historic, rehabilitated residences. The Cooper Plaza and Lanning Square neighborhoods are directly adjacent to Camden’s Central Business District, Cooper University Health Care and Cooper Medical School of Rowan University. Many students choose to live in these historic neighborhoods due to the proximity to the school, hospital, and public transportation. The neighborhood also includes a park, community garden, and the KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy charter school.
