Information for Undergraduate Students Considering On-Campus Housing

Welcome Home! We are glad you have found your way to Rutgers, and to the Camden campus. Since you are considering living on campus, let us provide you with a sampling of what this experience can be like…


  • Imagine a small community setting where most of the faces you’ll see on a daily basis look familiar because interaction between peers is frequent.
  • Imagine living in a comfortable, spacious, and secure suite with 3-5 other people that share similar goals and interests as you.
  • Imagine short walks to class, worry-free parking, easy access to Philadelphia and the surrounding area, and those all-too-important cat naps in between classes.
  • Imagine yourself taking a trip to New York to see a play, to Baltimore to visit a museum, or to Canada for Spring Break.
  • Imagine hanging out with new friends while playing pool or air hockey, or exercising in the fitness center.


This can all be yours by staying on-campus—the options are limitless.


Below you will find a wealth of information and resources—one stop shopping to make your decision easier. We understand that you have many options for attending college, and again for where you will live; we are committed to helping you make the right choice to allow your education to flourish. As always, if you cannot locate the information you are looking for, or require further information or clarification, feel free to contact the Housing & Residence Life Office.
