A Great Place to Visit
Take a campus tour. It’s the best way to get a feel for life at Rutgers University–New Brunswick. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable student guides share information about landmarks, facilities, and student life. Tours begin at the Visitor Center and reservations are required.
While there’s no substitute for visiting in person, you can still get a sense of our campus on a Virtual Tour. "Walk" around with student guides and you’ll see that our facilities are as diverse and multifaceted as our students.
Rutgers University is a community of five interconnected campuses, each with attractions to enlighten and entertain you. Check out the Rutgers Cinema on the Livingston Campus, the Zimmerli Art Museum on the College Avenue Campus, High Point Solutions Stadium on the Busch Campus, the Mason Gross Performing Arts Center on the Douglass Campus, or the Entomology Museum, with more than 200,000 bugs, butterflies, and other specimens, on the George H. Cook Campus.

We’re elite but not elitist. As part of our mission of service, we welcome everyone. And if you stroll our campuses you’ll see it looks like everyone accepted the invitation. Students often cite this broad diversity as one of the things they love about Rutgers. They appreciate the contribution of different perspectives and the support of others like themselves.
