Adjacent to the Newark campus of Rutgers is New Jersey Institute
of Technology (NJIT), which has a student enrollment of approximately
8,300. Rutgers-Newark and NJIT enjoy an exceptionally close and
productive consortial relationship within the thriving University
Heights section of Newark. Each year the two universities cosponsor a
common season of theatrical productions, a joint program of honors
colloquia, and a variety of other cultural and social activities.
Rutgers-Newark students have library privileges at the Robert W. Van
Houten Library of NJIT. They also may enrich their educational
experiences by enrolling in NJIT courses in areas not offered at
Rutgers-Newark. NJIT courses are cross-linked to the Rutgers-Newark
online schedule in order to facilitate the cross-registration process.
Joint or cooperative degree programs now exist in several graduate and
undergraduate fields, including the bachelor's programs in applied
physics, biology, computer science, environmental science, geoscience
engineering, history, and information systems. As a result
of this consortial relationship, the opportunities available to
students at both schools are greatly enhanced.
