JOIN US ON THE CAMPUS OF THE NEW JERSEY INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Forty-five acres of innovation and excitement—that's the NJIT campus. Have you seen it lately? NJIT has added a new building per year, on average, for the last two decades—most recently the Campus Center and Central King Building. Two new residence halls allow more students than ever before to live on campus, in a community that's intense but friendly, passionate about learning, and proud of its geeky coolness.
Getting to NJIT is easy from just about anywhere, especially anywhere in New Jersey or New York City. Multiple detailed travels plans, transit options and downloadable maps are provided further below.
