Have You Met Rutgers-Newark?
Designed for residents aged 21 and older, Talbott Apartments house graduate and transfer students as well as retuning upper-level students. The campus’s first residence hall, Talbott is at 101 Bleeker Street, adjacent to the freshman residence, Woodward Hall, and the main dining hall on campus, Stonsby Commons. It is just across the street from the John Cotton Dana Library and Paul Robeson Campus Center.
The building is named for Malcolm Talbott, vice president of Rutgers from 1963-74, who is largely credited with the modern development of the Newark campus. He was a dominant figure in forming the urban university center now known as University Heights, which includes Rutgers, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Essex County College and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
