Modern Urban Campus

In the late 1960s, the college moved to a new campus. Located in the downtown business district of Newark, the college is part of an active, urban community that gives students access to Newark's arts and cultural institutions, experiential learning, and exceptional internship opportunities in both Newark and New York City. The college shares a growing campus with several other divisions of Rutgers, including the Rutgers Business School (both undergraduate and graduate programs), the Graduate School-Newark, College of Nursing, the School of Law-Newark, and the School of Criminal Justice. The college is also within walking distance of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and the New Jersey Institute of Technology with the resources of both institutions available to qualified students through an exchange registration program. The campus continues to experience unprecedented growth with the recent construction of a new, $18 million Life Sciences Building that will serve to enhance and expand the university's life sciences education and research programs. In addition, the university is building the 13-story University Square student dormitory complex that will help meet the increasing demand for on-campus student housing. Students will begin living in the new dormitory by the fall of 2006.
