Overview

Rutgers University recently completed a comprehensive master plan for its three principal campuses in New Brunswick, Newark, and Camden. These campuses comprise over 1000 existing buildings, 26 million square feet, and serve a population of over 70,000. The planning effort was led by Rutgers along with its principal planning consultant, Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA). The master plan focused not only on traditional campus planning ideas, but also had a major focus on transportation and infrastructure, distance learning, and the creation of new centers for scholarship and community. The master plan also reflects for the first time the creation of Rutgers Biological and Health Sciences (RBHS) after the consolidation of UMDNJ.
