Rutgers Newark Community

Community at the heart

Though we are at the center of the city and have diverse faculty and students, you’ll never get lost in the crowd because people really do care here.

Community that’s committed to your success

We welcome you to visit and experience the sense of community that is at the heart of the Rutgers University-Newark spirit. Though our campus is at the center of a large city and comprises a diverse population of faculty and students, you’ll never get lost in the crowd here.

Learn with a faculty

Learn with a faculty that takes the time to get to know you in small class sizes that give you the chance to get to know other students.

A learning experience centered around you

You matter here—and you’ll feel that in the individual learning path you choose. You’ll make valuable connections with a faculty that cares and connect to students that are eager to learn together, share and explore together--and of course, have fun together.

What kind of study are you looking for?

You’ll find a place to fit on campus and in class

Inside the classroom, around campus, and in the city that surrounds us, you will get to know people on a personal level. And with so many sports, clubs, and organizations, there’s always a place to fit in. There’s a real warmth and excitement here that you can feel.


Get to know the faculty

Getting to know the faculty and faculty getting to know you—they are an important part of learning. You’ll pursue your education with a faculty that is as committed to your success as they are passionate about the subjects they teach. You find Fulbright Scholars and Pulitzer Prize winners, as well as recipients of the Carnegie Fellows and Guggenheim awards, who care passionately about your education.
