New Brunswick, with a population of about 42,000, is located in central New Jersey at Exit 9 of the New Jersey Turnpike and along the New York-Philadelphia railroad line. It is approximately 33 miles from New York City, and frequent express bus and train services are available from a station near the College Avenue campus to central Manhattan. Princeton is 16 miles to the south, Philadelphia about 60 miles to the southwest, and Washington, D.C., fewer than 200 miles to the southwest. The libraries, theaters, concert halls, museums, galleries, research institutes, clubs, and other educational, cultural, and recreational resources of the New York-Philadelphia region are easily accessible to students. In addition, Rutgers attracts many distinguished visitors, lecturers, and performing artists not always available to less favorably situated institutions. Newark, the state`s largest city, and Camden, which faces Philadelphia across the Delaware River, are characteristic northeastern American metropolitan centers. The university`s Newark campus is about 20 miles from its New Brunswick/Piscataway campuses, and a few faculty members are engaged in activities at both locations. The distance between New Brunswick and Camden is about 55 miles, making interchanges between these campuses less frequent. Nevertheless, the faculty participating in New Brunswick/ Piscataway programs does include members from Camden and Newark.
