We're eager to help prospective students, their parents, and visitors discover all that Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, has to offer. So we're delighted to welcome you to our Visitor Center, your gateway to Rutgers and an official New Jersey Visitor Information Center. The center is the starting point for tours of the Rutgers University–New Brunswick and a place to interact with exhibits that illustrate the university’s unique history and the many contributions Rutgers faculty, students, and alumni have made to New Jersey, the United States, and the world.
Fostering a healthy community on campus is core to the mission of Rutgers University–New Brunswick. While the university closely tracks the spread of COVID-19 across our region, we have taken action to ensure the well-being of our students and their families.
The Rutgers Visitor Center is currently closed. We are unable to meet with students and their families in person during this time. Please feel free to email us or call 848-445-4636 (Campus Information Services).
All tours through May 1 are postponed. Students/families affected by tour cancellations will be contacted by our office to reschedule their campus visit.
The Visitor Center is a 12,000-square-foot facility located on Sutphen Road, near SHI Stadium on the Busch Campus in Piscataway. Here, Rutgers’ history is etched in the walls: exhibits include a timeline of events from the founding of Queen’s College in 1766 through the birth of intercollegiate American football to the present day.

The campus tour was just what a parent needed to feel OK about sending an only child off to college. The tour guide was excellent. I would feel great sending my daughter here.
