Rutgers–New Brunswick has various types of residences depending on your preferred living situation.
Please be advised that not all on-campus residence options are open during the school breaks such as Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring breaks. This means that you won’t be able to stay in those residences during breaks, but you will be able to leave your belongings there. If you are not interested in this option, you will want to look for buildings that have nine-month contracts. We advise looking into the New Gibbons residence on the Cook/Douglass campus or any apartment-style housing options as they are on 9-month contracts and are open during the breaks.
For Undergraduate Students
We highly encourage our new students to live on campus for a minimum of one semester in order to become familiar with the campus and the surroundings. Once you get a better feel for the area, you will be more knowledgeable about finding a suitable place for you to live. Please visit Residence Life’s information page for international students to learn more about housing for international students.
FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS
Rutgers’ Residence Life is a great resource for more information about housing. Please see their Graduate and Family Students Frequently Asked Questions page to learn more about housing for graduate students and families, information on moving in and amenities, and other questions you may have along the way.
- Traditional residence halls and apartment-style living for single graduate students: Most single graduate students live on the Busch Campus or Cook/Douglass Campus. There are also roughly 100 spaces available in the Livingston apartments. It is your choice where you wish to live, but housing on the Cook/Douglass Campus would be your closest option for studying at SEBS.
- Two-bedroom apartments for graduate students living with their families: All graduate family housing is on the Busch Campus.
Housing assignments will be sent out by Residence Life in early August.
Off-campus housing is an option for all students, regardless of their situation. However, if you are a new student, we highly recommend that you live on campus at least for one semester.
Rutgers University Off-Campus Living and Community Partnerships provides an online database where you can find housing suitable to your needs. These are rental properties submitted by local, private landlords and apartment complexes. You can also find listings for roommates and post your own listing on this database.
Off-Campus Living and Community Partnerships also works with you if you are having issues with your landlord or co-tenants.
