Pomona is a census-designated place and unincorporated community located within Galloway Township, in Atlantic County, New Jersey, United States.[9][10][11] As of the 2010 United States Census, the CDP's population was 7,124.[4] The area is served as United States Postal Service ZIP code 08240.[5]

Locally, the name "Pomona" is loosely used also to refer to areas adjacent to Pomona proper, including adjoining portions of Hamilton Township and Egg Harbor Township in the vicinity of the Atlantic City International Airport.

Pomona is often thought to be the home to the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, since the mailing address for the college was a PO Box located in the Pomona Post Office. To correct this, the College changed their mailing address in 2011 to their main campus (using the street Vera King Farris Drive, Galloway Township, New Jersey).


Pomona is located at 39°28′07″N 74°33′00″W / 39.468722°N 74.550112°W / 39.468722; -74.550112 (39.468722,-74.550112). According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP had a total area of 2.797 square miles (7.244 km2), all of which was land.[1][2]
