Located in the city of Camden, the campus is in the
hub of southern New Jersey, directly across the Delaware River from
Center City Philadelphia. Numerous highways, the River LINE light-rail system, 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.
The major buildings on campus include the Campus Center with a student health center; the Business and Science Building; the Science Building; three residence halls; Paul Robeson Library; Armitage Hall, a classroom/office building with a wing for
administrative services; the Athletic and Fitness Center; and the Fine Arts Building, which houses the 663-seat Walter K. Gordon Theater, the Stedman Art Gallery,
and classrooms. Two blocks from the main campus, Rutgers University-Camden also includes a state-of-the-art Nursing and Science Building, and, as of 2020, will include space in the Joint Health Sciences Center.
The Rutgers-Camden Tower houses 252
undergraduate students in 42 suites. The Apartments residence hall houses upper-class undergraduates. Construction on a new graduate residence facility was completed in 2012. In addition, many students reside nearby in private apartments.
