Rutgers–New Brunswick has various types of residences depending on students’ preferred living situation.
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. Research shows that living on campus has a positive impact on students’ academic success and that students are likely to build deeper connections with their peers and faculty members. Once students get a better feel for the area, they will be more knowledgeable about finding a suitable place for them to live.
