Have You Met Rutgers-Newark?
Freshmen are assigned to Woodward Hall (91 Bleeker St.), which introduces them to traditional campus life with six-person suites with private baths. Residents use their meal plans to eat in Stonsby Commons, which is attached to Woodward.
Woodward takes its name from Herbert P. Woodward, who first taught in the New Jersey Law School, one of the schools that evolved into the University of Newark. When the University of Newark merged with Rutgers in 1946, he became dean of the Newark College of Arts and Sciences.
