Video Board and the lawn

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 enjoy the morning news. 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, Elevation Burger, Jersey Mikes and Surf Taco round out the long list of great food options for hungry visitors.

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.
