Located in the city of Camden, the campus is in the transportation hub of southern New Jersey, directly across the Delaware River from center-city Philadelphia. Numerous highways and the PATCO High-Speed Line provide quick, dependable access to the urban campus. Approximately 90 percent of the students, most of whom are from the Delaware Valley region, commute daily. Car pools are common and practical.
The major buildings on campus, most of them newly constructed, include the Campus Center with a bookstore and student health center; the Business and Science Building; the Science Building; two residence halls; Paul Robeson Library; Armitage Hall, a classroom/office building with a wing for administrative services; a gymnasium with squash courts, racquetball courts, a swimming pool, and weight room; and the Fine Arts Building, which houses the 663-seat Walter K. Gordon Theater, the Stedman Art Gallery, and classrooms.
The Rutgers-Camden Tower houses 252 undergraduate students in 42 suites. (Another residence hall houses graduate and law students.) In addition, many students reside nearby in private apartments.
