With its museums, ecological preserve, and astronomy observatory plus a packed schedule of film festivals, lectures, concerts, and sporting events, there are many reasons to visit Rutgers University, located in New Jersey and the heart of the East Coast.
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, SHI Stadium on the Busch Campus, the Mason Gross Performing Arts Center on the Douglass Campus, or the Entomological Museum, with more than 200,000 bugs, butterflies, and other specimens, on the George H. Cook Campus.
