Campus Resources and Facilities
Thirty-one buildings, 38 acres of beautifully landscaped open spaces with an urban vibe, and nearly 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students, in the heart of the downtown of New Jersey's largest city. Rutgers-Newark is all that as well as computer and science labs, smart classrooms, moot courtrooms, libraries, recreational facilities, residence halls, dining rooms, snack bars, and more. Thirty-one buildings seem like a lot; here’s a guide to what’s where.
Blumenthal Hall (249 University Ave.) student services building is located on the corner of University Avenue and Raymond Boulevard. It is home to Admissions, Health and Pharmacy Services, the Counseling Center, Commuter Transit and Parking Services, the Office of Communications, the Office of Summer and Winter Sessions, the Office of Financial Aid, the Registrar, and Human Resources.
For an email account, wireless connections, a NetID, PC repairs and a host of other technology needs, Newark Computing Services in Hill Hall, Room 109 (360 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.) is the place. Students also can get free or discounted software and computers through NCS .
Our libraries are multimedia information centers, with rich resources for graduate, undergraduate and professional students, and the general public. The main campus library honors John Cotton Dana, one of the most famous librarians in American history. We also boast the premiere resource of criminal justice materials, the largest law library in NJ, and the largest jazz archive in the world.
Rutgers-Newark offers students a traditional campus-life experience with undergraduate and graduate housing options in Woodward Hall (91 Bleeker St.), Talbott Apartments (101 Bleeker St.) and University Square (155 University Ave., as well as family housing on Bleeker and James streets.

University Square houses a Subway sandwich store, a food court, a convenience store and a coffee shop. Also available are One Park Bistro in the Business School (1 Washington Park) and the Law & Justice Café, in the Center for Law and Justice (123 Washington St.).
The Paul Robeson Campus Center is the heart of student life at R-N, providing cultural, social, developmental, recreational and learning environments through its many student organizations and boards, venues for performances and conferences, free public art galleries, and the Office of Student Life and Leadership. And we couldn't call it a student center if it didn't have a lounge, game room, the Raider Mart convenience store, and the eateries listed in Places to Eat.
Bradley Hall (110 Warren Street) is the place to shop for books, school supplies, and Rutgers apparel, in the campus Barnes & Noble. The building is also home to two academic departments: Arts, Media & Culture and Urban Education; the Learning Center; Academic Foundations Center; Bradley Theatre, and the campus post office.

Housed in Parking Deck I (200 University Ave.), the Department of Public Safety oversees the campus police and security forces, community service officers, shuttle bus and transportation services, and card access systems. Public Safety personnel are responsible for life safety responses and provide security at campus events; through its units, students can arrange for police escorts, and take shuttles around campus, to train stations and to neighboring Newark colleges.
The School of Law – Newark and the School of Criminal Justice share a single building, the Center for Law and Justice (CLJ)(123 Washington Street), which also is home to the law library and the criminal justice library. Also located in CLJ are the Police Institute, the Division of Global Affairs, the Office of the Chancellor. On the lower level you'll also find the Center for Law and Justice Cafe, which serves a variety of hot and cold beverages, sandwiches, salads and homemade soups.

The school’s new and expanded facilities include state-of-the-art classrooms and meeting spaces as well as a full-service, 130 seat cafe (1 Park Bistro).
