Welcome to 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.


Stop by any time throughout the day for a diverse culinary experience!

 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.
