About The Yard

Located at the heart of the historic College Avenue Campus, The Yard is a residential, retail and outdoor space and is one of the most unique college-community spaces in America. Serving as a new "front porch" to the Rutgers campus, The Yard is the newest gathering space for students, faculty and members of the greater New Brunswick community. The Yard is an awesome living environment and an amazing destination for students and visitors alike.

Video Board and The Yard

A 25,000 square foot public green space hosts countless events, an HD jumbo-tron that broadcasts Rutgers sporting and cultural events, movies, news, original content and live programming, from early morning to late in the evening throughout the year.

Great Food, Plenty of Choices

The Yard is also one of New Brunswick's newest dining destinations where you'll be able to grab some coffee from Starbuck's and a treat from Scarlet Sweets. Healthy grub will be found at honeygrow, but you'll still be able to get your Fat Sandwich at RU Hungry. At Your Doorstep Convenience has got you covered for those last minute necessities or on-the-go snacks before class. And Krispy Pizza, Bella's Burger Shack, Jersey Mikes and Surf Taco round out the long list of great food options for hungry visitors.

The Best in On-Campus Living

On the corner of College Avenue and Hamilton Street, the 14-story, U-shaped university apartment building features 135 single-bedroom apartments for 442 students. There are a number of common areas - including a sky lounge on the top floor with views of the New York City skyline - Wi-Fi, great retailers, and it's very own boardwalk.

Just Steps from the Busiest Student Bus Stop at Rutgers

With a bus stop used by more than 8,000 students daily, The Yard is the new crossroads of the Rutgers-New Brunswick campus, and welcoming to students, alumni and our neighbors across the area.
