New Brunswick is nicknamed the Hub City for good reason. Situated on the banks of the Raritan River between New York City and Philadelphia, this historic, pre-Revolutionary era city is convenient to major highways and mass transportation. We are less than an hour from New York City by train or bus.
You’ll find plenty to see and do in New Brunswick, with its vibrant performing arts community and a wide array of choices for fine and casual dining. On the Rutgers campus, check out events ranging from free lectures to performances and art exhibitions at the Mason Gross School of the Arts. Or, visit the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, one of the largest university art museums in the country, or the Rutgers Geology Museum, which tells the natural history of New Jersey.
