Busch Campus

Launched as a “daring move” during the Great Depression, the Busch Campus has a can-do, eye-on-tomorrow spirit that has been its hallmark from the get-go. Today, it’s where ahead-of-the-curve medicine, science, engineering, and high-tech happen, where the Visitor Center welcomes all, and where fervent fans flock to cheer the Scarlet Knights. On the expansive hilltop in Piscataway above the Raritan River that is Busch Campus, Rutgers people are ever looking to the future.
