Come See for Yourself
With talented faculty, staff and students from all over the world, Rutgers University is a dynamic community and a great place to get your education. To learn about campus life, academic programs, and applying to Rutgers, come to our Visitor Center on the Busch Campus. It’s the gateway for tours.
Our admissions tour gives you a general overview of Rutgers University–New Brunswick. The tour includes a 30-minute information session with an admissions counselor, followed by a chartered bus tour of our five vibrant residential campuses. Tours begin at the Visitor Center and online registration is required.
We offer campus touring for large groups of students during the Fall and Spring semesters. Typically these groups are school classes or community organizations of 10 to 60 students. We host group tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Online registration is required.

Walking tours are conducted by Douglass Residential College, a small, highly engaged community of women. Mentoring and career-development opportunities abound at Douglass. Reservations are preferred, but not required.
