Atlantic Union College, a Seventh-day Adventist college in Lancaster, Massachusetts, has brought student living to the small New England town since its founding as a preparatory school in 1882. Originally named "That New England School," Atlantic Union aimed to serve Adventist constituents in the northeastern U.S. and in Bermuda. Lancaster, a town of about 8,000 residents, is located in central Massachusetts, where plentiful student housing has been available. Students at Atlantic Union College have had the option to live in dormitories on campus or in a college apartment in the community. Off campus housing places students in an environment that offers convenience and flexibility in its proximity to campus and position within the quaint town.
Student living at Atlantic Union College reached its final year operation in 2011. However, the school has been absorbed by Washington Adventist University, which has announced plans to operate a satellite campus at the site of Atlantic Union in South Lancaster. The move requires approval from the Massachusetts Board of Education and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
