The Rutgers Center for Global Education is happy to provide assistance to our incoming exchange students in need of on-campus housing; however housing assignments are ultimately up to the discretion of the Rutgers Housing Office. If you indicate on your application that you would like to live on-campus we will work with housing to place you in a university apartment/dormitory on the College Avenue Campus, Douglass/Cook Campus, Livingston, or Busch Campus.
Incoming exchange students will usually be housed in university apartments, common placements include: Easton Avenue, Silvers, Newell, and Starkey. In the university apartments, students will have access to shared kitchen facilities. Rutgers University offers bedding packages for purchase. You will need to bring your own bath towels.
* Please note that the majority of on-campus residences at Rutgers are shared rooms. We are not able to request a single room for incoming students, unless they have a documented disability. If this is the case, then please let us know early in the application process so that we can send you the necessary disability accommodation forms.
If housing is not included in your exchange agreement, you will be responsible for the cost of housing. Payment in full is due during the first two weeks of the semester; students also may have the option of paying online before they arrive. For a list of estimated prices as well as a description of some of the options, please visit the Rutgers University Housing and Residence Life web page.
We will provide you with current semester prices once your housing has been assigned and current year prices become available.
