One Community, Five Campuses

Think of Rutgers University–New Brunswick, with more than 41,000 students, as something like a lively and vibrant city. And just as the best small cities have a fun mix of neighborhoods, each with its own identity—some quiet and bucolic, others with a bustling, urban ambience—so do the five smaller campuses of Rutgers–New Brunswick. At each campus, you’ll find everything you need—student centers, dining options, residence halls, computer labs, classrooms, libraries, student lounges, and lots more.

2,688 acres, 22 libraries, 670 buildings, 6 student centers

A hub of innovation, science, and medicine, the Busch Campus is where you’ll find the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, the School of Engineering, the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, and other high-tech and health schools and research centers. It's where you hear roaring football crowds at High Point Solutions Stadium and enjoy the Werblin Recreation Center's Olympic-size pool. It is also home to the Visitor Center, a starting point for campus tours.

With a spectacular new building for Rutgers Business School opening in fall 2013, a new first-run movie theater, and a new dining commons, new residence halls, and new student center, the Livingston Campus is a community with a forward-looking vision. The campus is home to one of the nation’s largest campus solar arrays as well as the Louis Brown Athletic Center (the “RAC”), where Rutgers cheers its basketball teams.

The heart of the university, the College Avenue Campus is where it all began for Rutgers, with historic and architectural milestones dating back to the American Revolution. Based here are the School of Arts and Sciences—the largest school at Rutgers—other schools and departments, and the Rutgers Student Center. Downtown New Brunswick, with its shops, eateries—and urban vibe—includes Mason Gross School of the Arts, the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, and more.

With its Georgian Colonial architecture and sprawling lawns, the Douglass Campus is where you’ll find Douglass Residential College, the university’s women’s residential college. The campus is home to the Eagleton Institute of Politics and to the social and intellectual ferment of the Global Village, a group of living-learning communities, such as the East Asian House and the Human Rights House.

Home to the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences, the G.H. Cook Campus is a bucolic setting for quiet contemplation and innovative research, with high-tech labs, a working organic farm, open green spaces, and athletic fields. A pastoral pond (known as “Passion Puddle”) is shared with the adjacent Douglass Campus.
