Not many schools have a campus set up quite like Rutgers–New Brunswick. With five interconnected, yet self-sufficient campuses, travel is a key component to every student’s daily routine.
- Walk: Besides walking to class, the dining hall, the gym, the library, or the student center, walking to another campus altogether is a great way to get your steps in! Walking paths to and from each campus connect students who are looking for a peaceful, yet energizing method to move around.
- Bike: If you like moving faster than the average walk, but at your own pace, then biking from campus to campus is the answer to your commute! Similar to the walking paths, biking paths connect all of our campuses for those students interested in adding a few more workouts in their daily routine.

- P.S. If it ever starts raining while you’re biking, do not worry! All Rutgers buses come equipped with a bike rack for easy transport.
- Bus: Fun fact: Rutgers has the second largest transportation system in the state (just behind NJ Transit)! With nine different direct routes Monday-Friday, and two all-campus routes on the weekends, the Rutgers’ buses take students from campus to campus with ease. During the week, buses run from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m., and 24/7 on the weekends! You can expect a bus to arrive at every bus stop for every route every 5-10 minutes.
- P.S. All buses are free to use!
- P.P.S. All Rutgers’ buses now come with WiFi!
- The Knight Mover: For the short time Rutgers’ buses are offline, the Knight Mover will pick students up wherever they are, and drop them off wherever they need to go.
Did You Know?
- The scheduling system utilized by Rutgers for students to create class schedules takes into account travel time. The system will not allow students to schedule classes to close together if they are on separate campuses
- Each campus has staggered start times for their classes. For example, the first class on College Avenue starts at 8:10 a.m., whereas the first class on Livingston begins at 8:20 a.m., allowing for more commute time
