New Brunswick Tips to Plan Your Day

Pick a Campus
Browse program offerings by campus or experience and view our program booklet to find a destination that most appeals to you and your family.

Get the Details
Our website and program booklet provide maps, activity schedules, and program details for events happening from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Pick up a booklet at an information tent when you arrive (or print it out before you leave home).

Arrive on Campus
All campus parking lots are open and free on Rutgers Day. Jot down the campus location and parking lot number found on lot entrance signs, or take a quick photo, to remember your car's location. Handicap parking is available in all open lots on each campus.

Ride the Rutgers Day Bus Loop
You'll find a whole day's worth of great things to do at each location, but if you are going to travel across campuses in New Brunswick, take a free Rutgers Day bus. Consult our bus route maps, look for signs, or ask an Information Tent representative to point you to our special bus stops. No pets are permitted on the buses, with the exception of service dogs.

Check Out the Essentials

Each campus offers food vendors, dining halls, and student center food courts. Or, you can bring your own treats and have a picnic.

Found in all open buildings.

First-aid stations
Located at each location.

Rutgers Day buses are wheelchair accessible. Most buildings—other than historic buildings—are also accessible by wheelchair.

Finding help
Look for staff in Rutgers Day T-shirts. For emergencies, dial 911.

Use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones
Rutgers University has restricted the recreational use of unmanned aerial vehicles, remotely operated model airplanes and helicopters, and other remotely operated flying vehicles on university property, and the recreational use of any university-owned UAV equipment under any circumstances in any location. Failure to comply with this restriction may result in confiscation of the UAV, imposition of disciplinary measures, and possible state and/or federal penalties.
